1995 NAS Defender A/C Vents

I am in the process of getting a bid to produce A/C vents for the 1995 NAS Defender with the Wynns air conditioning systems. This is not the same as those used for any other year Defender or any ROW Defender. These were specific to the 1995 NAS Defender only. They were part of the unit that was supplied by Wynns, a Texas-based company, to LRNA. Wynns went out of business in the 90s. I have located the original injection molding company that made the vents for Wynns. They stated that since they haven’t run production for these in many years, it would require a set-up fee and would need to meet their minimum order requirements that are yet to be determined.

I am trying to get an idea if there are any other ’95 Defender owners that would be interested in a set of vents for their vehicle.
The set would consist of:
2 Inboard (large) Part # LRNA23-9116A
2 Outboard (small) Part # LRNA23-9115A
1 Round Heater Vent Part # LRNA23-0555A

Do to a presumably limited run, I am guessing that they may be a couple hundred bucks per set, but I don’t really know yet. If you have some interest, please let me know.

Just tossing this out there— cause I know a couple injection molders and minimums are a killer—you may well consider printing the pieces in lieu of injecting them. Or even milling them if you want. Bet your cost would be lower... I don’t need them, but if I did I’d print them in a heart beat.

Perhaps. In fact that was my first thought until I located the original injection molding company. But they wouldn't be original and someone would need to have a pretty good 3D scanner or a really good familiarity with Fusion or some other CAD software to capture the detail. They are more intricate than they appear to be at first glance.
