I came across "Grübchen", but the search in German language leads to all sorts of results, none of them suitable. There is a source in the Netherlands and finally there is the possiblity to have one made in the company. They are not really difficult to make, even a non hardened one will do for one or two dozens of holes.

l will keep you informed.

It's just a pebble in your shoe.

You could make it to the positive and negative lathe and print it with the press. After a few attempts you can do it for sure

And nobody wants to walk with a pebble in his shoes, right?

I think I will follow Giovannis suggestion

Finished the assembly set, including reinforced holes. Spent a few moments on how the holes were arranged on the original and came to the conclusion that the work instruction at Pininfarina was: "Punch eight holes, no matter where, but stay on the panel". So did I.

Assembled with magnets so far.

To spot weld in the hidden corners a set of fingers had to be made. Went a simple way by bending two pins in the vice instead of making longer arms. Now all structural components are in place, there is little bit of flange remaining to be able to do final trimming and the skin is waiting to be welded to the frame. The passenger door underwent an inspection in order to see if the same treatment will be necessary.

We will see.
