3D Printed Rear Brake Reservoir Cover

Right from the start I didn't like the way the bright translucent white rear brake reservoir stands out from the rest of the black and red bike. So to try and mitigate it I measured, designed and printed a cover for it.

Now I'm only an amateur CAD wrangler and my 3D printer is nothing special but I'm still pretty happy with how it turned out, it's much less noticeable than it was.

I've made it available on Thingiverse for anybody who wants to print their own:
Or if anybody wants to have a go at refining it then I can send them the original Sketchup file to edit.

Photos (hopefully) included below as the file size limit is ridiculously small.

Red M/T, the shinyness didn't last long...
