The problem is when the skirts are attempted to be passed on as authentic. That's unethical and a disgrace. Sell and Own them for what they are.
Enjoy, the replicas are a stylish bargain.
I agree with your point I put in bold.
These replicas have all the same mounting points as the OPs authentic pieces (I compared all his install shots to the set I have including hardware). Im not joking when I say whoever made these went the extra mile to produce a near perfect clone minus what material that was used to make them.
As for the STI stick on badge, the side skirts also have the indentation they are suppose to fit into. So not putting them in would look half assed. The HT Autos replicas have HTA in that spot, the BaysonR replicas have nothing there.
These guys other than using fiber glass included ever single detail in this replica. Not sure why though.
The only flaw in these because they are fiber glass is the inside edges you dont see when installed need the edges lightly sanded to smooth them out. The only bonus to them being fiber glass is if anything happens I can repair them easily unlike the plastic pieces that just break.
