Please help! looked everywhere for some plastic hinge covers. I saw someone selling 3D printed copies on ebay but his add is now gone. I have seen that people have the 3D printed plan of them in the past but these have been removed. I bought the car with just one of the longer sections of the covers and didn't realise how hard it would be to find some. I have looked and don't really want to have to spend £150 on a set of new hinges for what is just a bit of plastic trim.
Any help or signposts where to find some covers or the plan would be so helpful.
Thanks :)

Genuine ones will cost a small fortune, but you could poke around somewhere like here:

Update
So I have found an eBay seller selling copies for nearly 40 quid, and I found one seller selling just one side for £50, this seems pretty steep for what is just a bit of trim.
My mate has a 3D printer but I can’t find the plan anywhere..... recon the guy selling the copy has made sure no one else can I’m find it!

Can your mate not create a drawing from an actual hinge cover.

Perhaps someone on the escape site may have a drawing of one.

The USA never got the Mk1 Kuga, the Escape Mk1 was a Mazda Tribute with a Ford Escape badge.
I wouldn't think the Escape site will even know what car you have.

That Facebook group looks like it might be quite useful to a number of people!
