I just contacted them through email. They only specialize in custom wire mesh grill solutions, not fabricating panels, whether they include wire mesh or not.

I heard back from Clubautosport in the UK. They sent me a few better pictures of their rear reflector replacement panel. The panel can be had with one reverse light and one rear fog light for ú35 each in addition to the ú100 for the panel.

That looks pretty good, though I think I would prefer a single square cut out each end with the glass set into it, rather than the two ovals

Oval holes not my cup of tea either. If it was a plain panel then it would look better. Can the fog lights not be included into the side cluster?

I really like the mesh/grill on the cars on P1 of theis thread. If you remove the reflector there is still a panel behind though isn't there so ho is that removed so the grill goes straight through to the engine?

I kinda agree, but I think with a little fiberglass work it can be made completely smooth with no script and no holes. I sent the guy who sells these another email a little bit ago to see if they can be made that way.

Edit: They are only available as pictured. I'm going to order one and fill the holes for the lights. I'll probably use some small led's mounted next to the license plate for reverse lights. The couldn't be any worse than the reverse lights in the reflector.

If this is your end goal, why not simply paint or vinyl wrap your center reflector instead? It seems to me that it would be a cheaper and better looking alternative alternative to that stick on piece. Even if you smooth out the holes and script, it will have a wavy look like it shows in the pictures and it will not sit flush with the tail lights.

Its not stick on though, it's a replacement pane (isnt it?)l, so no reason it would'nt sit flush

It does indeed replace the center reflector.

My center reflector is broken and this piece replaces it completely.

Totally off topic, but any more photos or a link to that 928? That looks mean!
