Default Post up your fake GV tails!

Well, I thought Iíd post pics of what the fake GV tails look like, this is the one BlackWidow sold me for an embarrassing sum.

Hereís the front side. Not bad from four feet away


Hereís the backside. Holy shit, super gloppy gelcoat.



The closer you get to this thing, it doesnít get better. Gloppy, pinholes, boogers




One of you folks with the genuine Garage Vary item, post pics of that so people can know the difference. I have mine but Iím not interested to haul it out of the box at the moment.

I'd be pissed paying anything more than $300 for that type of poverty fiberglass work.

Have you tried fitting it on?

I didn't bother to try to fit it, one of the ears is somewhat distorted and very thin... I didn't think there was any point. My car is nearly pristine and to fit this would be a crime.

No, and I didn't think to ask. They were listed as GV tails. GV stands for Garage Vary. These were not made by garage vary. I really wasn't expecting that level of ripoff.

But I already have a bitch and cry thread, the point of this thread is to get this out there so people can know the difference. At least they will when somebody posts up their genuine Garage Vary panel.

you funny guy, I need rotors and pads before I start looking at finish panels.

to be honest I'm not really a fan of the GV tail lights, I thought the gv rep panels were going for $600

Serious question: What do people do about the reverse and tails? Are Corvette tails like Cxmoney has the only option?

I would imagine that thing would look fine if it was patched up before painting. I'm curious about how it fits! I'm not convinced on the fit based on the pic with the LED light installed. Did it come with the pieces that the stock tail light gaskets are supposed to go on?

these:


Sickspeed has their stuff on amazon too... it's odd because shipping it from amazon is less than $5, whereas from ebay, it's $45

I would like to see more pics of the fitment.

It didn't come with shit. It should have come with a truckload of Ramen, I would have been able to recoup my losses better.

You guys are a funny bunch, i.e. "Wow that looks like shit! .... How did it fit?"

How does that go with women. "Boy, get a bag on her head! ..... How is she in bed, does she have any teeth?"

I saw your other thread about the whole ordeal. I was literally researching the replicas last night, seeing if it made any sense to attempt piece the set together, and then i saw your thread this morning. Hope you can get something back. Have you talked to D.original about his price?

This makes me really fucking mad. That is why we can't get cool stuff over here. People jump on the bandwagon to buy these fake parts that hurt the guys over in Japan.

Good on you.

I'm not all "JDM FOR LYFE", but there has to be a line drawn. Wheels are expensive and so are lips. I get that. If you want XXR's or a fake R lip, cool.

But custom parts from people trying to help a niche group is something special. If we buy rip offs of that, they will fade away.

I'm no longer so interested in the fakes if the legit parts are this cheap.

It's only $400 to my door for the legit panel, i'm sure i could get the lights for under $300 with some clever shopping.
