Default Embossed PF 25 oil filters - my solution to $900 oil filters.

I pulled a fiberglass mold from the bottom of an original and pulled a relief and bonded it to the bottom of std WIX oil filter.
I have not finished it off as of yet.

Wonder why someone hasn't molded a plastic sleeve that would slip over and snap onto a parts store filter and have the look of an original..

I do have a 3D printer here at work..... Too bad the 3D plastic wouldn't take the heat but glass filled nylon might hold up..

I have thought about that too and would sure be interested in buying one or two.

It's the GM licensing at 2500 per year plus 10% of applicable sales which is the hold up on such a low volume item. Really how large is the market?
Perhaps few thousand if they were under $20?
