Initially flat material like chassis plates, motor plates z-plates for Eurostyle chassis as well as conversion chassis for RTR cars replacing the plastic chassis. Alternative chassis for 1/24 Scaleauto and center and side pans for Retro with some added bling.

How about cut to fit weights to fit in existing plastic frames.

Depends on the materials I suppose and it might not be cost effective labor wise.
