I noticed one of these was missing the other day. I could probably get one at a dealer but perhaps they are available on the net. I tried finding them on parts drawings, but no dice. Any ideas?

That part is called the rail and I really don't recall any of those buttons being oem (some member can verify). if it is, epc shows no buttons on it. so maybe they bought the rail or those buttons 3rd party?

can you check epc? My pic shows no buttons, of course it is a drawing and we cannot expect an artist to drawer circles freehand :D

They're original, but they're not actually seperate buttons, but a strip, or at least they are on the facelift models (the ones with SLK or V6 in the middle) , the best idea might be to pick up a whole sill off eBay or from a breakers and then you'd have plenty of spares..

I've got a 3d printer coming sometime soon, hopefully... (I backed it on Kickstarter early last year, so....fingers still crossed.) This would be a good first project when (and if) it comes.

Any 3d printer guys out there? Is there a printable plastic with rubber qualities?

So yes there are printer plastic with rubber qualities but it can be difficult to get to print and may be too rubbery.
