My bad, I thought it was an overlay for the center reflector.

Can anyone comment on the fitment and overall quality of this piece from Getty Design? It looks like a perfect base piece to work with, but it's hard to make out the details in the one photo I found here.

From the looks of it, I just need to drill fastener holes myself and decide whether to just finish in body color or cut it out (like the one from my original post).

There's no substitution for real thing:

I don't think of it that way. I don't want the real thing.

I like the mesh panel.

If an when I get the time, I'll have one fabricated to include fog and reverse lights if possible!

I too like the black mesh one. Don't think I can get anyone local to fabricate one. Will keep searching though.

Gents, I've gone the local fabricator route and cost is the main prohibitor. Regardless, I think that panel I just posted above may be the perfect blank. It's made to fit there; appears you just have to punch holes or whatever for pre-existing fasteners. Why go through the trouble to fabricate if it already exists? Just wish it was slightly cheaper though, for what it is. I think I'm going to buy this in about a month though.

I just bought some new ones as well and I figured they'd be good for another decade or so. What do you suggest, Gus' kit?

+1

I hope the new ones are made better, but I'd wrap them in clear UV just just in case...

It not only rids you of dealing with an expensive part that will eventually degrade, but it saves weight. Of course it takes a little DIY engineering and a solution for the reverse lighting, but I like it.


I think it's the best , without the Porsche crest for me ,

Well I got the aforementioned piece from Getty. First impression is it's a very robust carbon fiber piece. Very rigid! I'm still deciding whether to just paint to match or cut out the center like the ones from post #1 and #2. I don't have a lot of spare time for projects right now, so plenty of time to decide.

Thats gonna look ace! I recon you should cut the hole to make the grill. You'd then be able to remove the horizontal heat reflector that sits beneith the rear reflect to make it a proper functioning vent.

Dunno whether reverse/rear fogs are a legal requirement for you but you could fit some small units behind the grill, one each side.
