Thanks Handy!

I repaired the worn cam surface with JBWELD PlasticWeld in 2016. It's easy to apply, creating an accurate, harder camming surface than the origional plastic. Still functions perfectly.

3D printing is the latest technology. Would 3D printer plastic be as hard as JB PlasticWeld? JBWeldPlasticWeld is about $5.00. How much is a 3D printer?
SOOO BIG's MFS repair has lasted since 2016. The JBWeld PlasticWeld is easily applied to the cam and shaped while setting. It's as hard as a rock.
Seems to be a long lasting, cheap improvement and fix.
Soft plastic on the origional cam surface was a manufacturing defect.

Depends on the filament you use.
Carbon Fiber Nylon, ASA, etc. It might coats $35-$50 a roll. but cost 5 to print.
So, if you sell that part for $5 your see where this is going.

There maybe a reason the fog light cam assembly is cheap plastic. In Chrysler's own inimitable fashion, it'll wear out and have to be replaced.
The origional worn plastic fog light cam, covered with a layer of JBWeld PlasticWeld, is all but indestructable and resolves that.
I'm not planning on going into production making fog light cam assemblies for a diminishing PT Cruiser market so I'll stick with my left over $5.00
JBWeld PlasticWeld. Even the cost of that's going up with depreciated Biden dollars.
