Honda Beat Trunk Rod HolderUpdated September 20, 2023
The trunk rod holder on my Honda Beat was broken when I got the car, and 3D printing seemed like a better option than trying to import one from Japan. There was already a model for this part floating around the internet and, while functional, it doesn’t resemble the original part at all.
I found some photos of the real part on Yahoo! Auctions and attempted to recreate it. Ultimately, I’m pretty happy with the result. This part is of similar design and dimensions to the original. The biggest change is that I filled in the sides to make the part more durable and easier to print.
I printed the part in ABS because it has greater flexibility and heat resistance than PLA, but I may try other materials in the future.
