Default Nissan Push Pins/Clips

I haven't been very active lately in the forums, but just wanted to share what I found on Thingiverse for our push pins/clips. I'm guessing that some other folks here have also broken some of their push pins/clips under the hood when changing out their battery, etc.

If you have access to a 3D printer, you can print out some replacement clips (recommend using PETG or ABS) using this design on Thingiverse:

You can buy 100 or so for around $5-10 on Amazon, not sure how much in materials it would cost to print them.

let alone the 3D printer itself....

and I got a bag of 200 (100 of the larger size and 100 of the smaller size) with the prying tool for around $7 shipped.

Yeah, I wouldn't buy the printer just for these pins, lol. Not sure who would

I had seen the price for 100/200 on Amazon, but I already had the printer for other stuff. It was nice that someone shared their Nissan pin design. If you've never 3D printed, the materials are rather cheap, just a few grams for 20 or so pins.

Interesting. I don't plan on buying a 3-D printer to make rivets but it's nice to know it can be done.
