Fibreglass copies in general tend to be very poor quality, dont have proper mounting holes n dont line up properly, require a lot of modification trimming n sanding etc and tend to snap or crack easily

nowhere near the quality you'd get from buying genuine and usually not worth the hassle

this is why they so cheap lol

Agree with Charlie, fibreglass parts tend to be cast from moulds made from original parts therefore any inaccuracies of the mould translate to the castings.

There's a Polish seller on eBay that sells cast parts and the quality and fit is apparently shocking.
