New rear registration plinth on Amazon

Recommended Posts

Where does this all happen on facebook? Whenever I go onto the corrado pages there's never any activity.

The spoonfed tuning one arrived from Heritage and I think I am going to send it back to be honest as the quality is pretty poor. It doesn't have nice flat finish, has marks here and there, and looks like odd bits of dirt or dust have settled into the gelcoat. The back is also pretty roughly finished as are some of the cut outs. 

OK you won't see the back and some of the marks would be hidden by the numberplate, but for that sort of money I expect the finish to be spot on.

The rear of any fibreglass is usually rough / strand finish tbh

It's not a wet lay CSM by the looks of it though - looks like some vacuum forming has taken place. I'd be confident of getting a better finish tbh, if I had the time and space, but it's not so much that, It's more the glue everywhere where the fixings have been attached that is off putting. I don't know, maybe I'm being overly picky.

I probably wouldn't mind the back, if the front was perfect.

For £250 I'd want it hand delivered and fitted tbh. Its a bugger for chipping too, not that's too much of an issue on the rear of a car.
