I finally got this project buttoned up.  I had the 'chrome' bases and top covers sent out to be professionally scanned and modeled to within a few thousandths of the OEM parts (per the designer).  After some testing with Shawn & BJL in various different 3d materials, we decided on the best material to use for this project and I had a bunch printed up.

These are 3d printed in white (off white or beige depending on the manufacturer at the time) Nylon PA12 material and can be dyed using any paint/dye that is approved for nylon, per the manufacturer of these parts.

The items can be purchased directly through our site: https://23parts.com/#!/3dparts

Here's a few photos...

BJL did paint them, but I'm not sure what type of paint he used. Per the manufacturer of these parts, paint/dye that is approved for nylon should be used on these parts:
