Default Looking for plastic caps of Avid Interfaces

I'm looking to buy a set of those plastic caps to the left and right of the HD interfaces.
Can anybody point me into the right direction? I have no clue where to look for them.

Thanks!

Assume you are referring to the OMNI? I would start with contacting an Avid service center. Near Nashville, there's allproelectronics.com

That's all one face plate. Those "rack ears" (that's what they are called not "end caps" if you are trying to do a search) are molded with the rest. So if you need to do a replace, you will be replacing everything (except the Avid badge which is a separate stick-on item)

No, they are not. I already took one apart because I had to change the face plate. They are separate parts that are held tight by just a screw.

Are you sure? I have a 192 that I removed the blue plastic endcaps(its a long story) and those came off with a few screws from the back

True dat.
Thanks for pointing out service centers, but I figure I'd better contact Avid's service directly then. Ireland is closer than Nashville, and I'm not sure if there are any Avid certified service centers in Germany at all. I always had to ship my units to Ireland when sth needed servicing.

Hey Meads

I have someone who might be able to get those two caps for you. Let me know if you need me to research for you.

Nice to see you here. Been away for a bit.

Funnily enough that's exactly what I need it for.
Have an old Sync HD with the old faceplate. Recently picked up the dark front panel and didn't notice it doesn't come with those caps. That's why I now have a Frankenstein unit, and I'd like to have it look more tidy in the rack.
Girls want matching shoes and purses, I want matching front plates.
