L J Tail light surrounds have been for sale on E Bay for a while now, just wondering if anybody has got them and whether they fit up OK.

From what I've heard they're not a good fit with screw holes in the wrong spot.

Another forum member has told me the screw holes actually line up reasonably well but his have big gaps esp on the corners under the indicator lenses and just generally do not fit very well.

They may be passable to some people but def not a concourse quality replacement part. There is no substitute for OEM.

I cannot believe these are not replicatable.!!

 

Far out, can scan things to within tenths of millimetres, gotta be some sort of suitable chinesium to make them from..

I purchased a set and returned them. They refunded the money no questions asked. The holes lined up pretty good with my tail lights. The only issue I had was they had a lot of dings on them. They advised me it was a tooling issue at the manufacturers.

Thanks for the feedback , does't sound like there worth $600 + dollars yet. Hopefully they will be better in future .
