I know it's a long shot but has anyone got one of these cones kicking around that go on the front bar of a webasto fabric sunroof from the 70's.

You might be able to get someone to 3D-print one for you.

Thanks but already tried that but not able to get one 3D printed that is strong enough, tried different designs but they all after a short time have cracked. They are made from a really hard nylon type material.

It might be possible to turn one up from a nylon bar, if all else fails.

Now that's a interesting idea just need someone with a lathe.

I would've thought that would be fairly simple in a lathe.  I don't have any nylon bar otherwise I'd have a stab.
