Rear suspension ready, minus the lower balls... the bearings I had were a little too small so I printed a spacer and off we go!

Nice!

I'm curious, where did you buy the strands? I didn't find good strands so I ended up buying an entire lamp, but if you have a link to the ones you bought I could add that to the equipment list.
And a tip, don't make too sharp bends on the strands, they tend to brake after a while and it limits the light flow. (maybe you have better quality strands that can handle sharper bends though).

I bought these at Amazon...

The ones I had were too thin...

I am now "studying" how to apply the lens to the headlight.

Ok! yes make sure you don't bend them too sharply. It was a bit tricky to get even light distribution on all of them, it might take a couple o tries!

Screws didn’t work for me as there is not enough meat on the door skin, so I glued it. Also, realized that the M4 nylon screw likes to come undone every time the door is opened eventually loosening it enough to make the door not close neatly anymore. So I made sure the screw was glued as well!

Looks good! :) that mechanic is tricky indeed, I've done a couple of remakes of the construction before I had a solution I thought was good enough to even share. The nylon is to make it slide better while still be tight enough, but depending on the material you print in and the tolerances of the printed parts the screw might not sit tight enough. Looks good anyway! :)

Be aware that you will probably need to sand the edges of the door on the inside quite a bit before the door closes nicely. I didn't want to make the edges too thin in the CAD because that causes a lot of problems in the slicing and printing, but it can be done afterworth.
