can you also do a quick rub with a dry microfiber towel to see how easily they scratch compared to OEM?
Originals are surprisingly resistant to scratch and easy to polish

Good point, not all SS is made the same so to speak. I wonder if they would divulge what grade they use?

Here are some shots of the trim on the car in comparison to the original. The reproduction one's edge are a bit sharp and appears to be a straight-cut than the original where the ends are “rounded” and more defined. The original is on the bronze colored car. Enjoy!

I think those would be perfectly adequate for 98% of the roadster owners. Nice to see some inexpensive reproduction parts available.

Old enough to know better, too old to remember why!


1969 2000 solex mine since 1972, under resurrection. (Finally resurrected as of spring 2019!) 1969 Porsche 911s -worth more, but not as valuable!

Bumpers front and rear are $480
Side trim $240
Shipping $195
Total landed $915 pay through bank or paypal is another $45
Those prices have gone up quite a bit since January.

Has anyone ordered, received and installed any side trim, especially the early concave trim?
