Hi everyone!

I have a 94 USDM AE102 LE.

I have been working on 3D printed alternatives to some of the JDM items since some of them are becoming hard to find and the prices seem to be getting a little wild. Currently I am working on the key/footwell light, cabin filter door conversion, and front door tweeter mounts (by the mirror).

I'd like to release these for free as I have with some Cressida items i've designed.

This will be printed in translucent PETG for the light ring, and flexible TPU for the rubber grommet. I've already printed a few samples, and I think I've figured out the part numbers of the male/female connectors, but I need to pull some from the junkyard to confirm. I'm debating if I should just glue an LED into the ring, or if I should design it to use the bayonet style plug with a bulb like the OEM.

The wiring circuit that allows the footwell and key light to remain powered for several seconds after door is closed is very simple and will cost a few dollars to replicate. The printing is also quite inexpensive.

Just wanted to share this in the hopes anyone may like to help and contribute. If anyone has a legit one they would like to take pics of, it would be really helpful.

I have made several different interior pieces for my Cressida, and the standard colors available in filaments don't always match perfect with OEM stuff. I mean, black works fine. But the browns, greys, blues, etc are kinda hit and miss on whether they match up to your satisfaction. What piece are you looking to make?

I redesigned the bulb area to use a standard bayonet plug that can be scavenged from just about any Toyota/Lexus.
