I personally use either Wilson’s or hornet fibreglass, but yes please post some pics when you get them of the fit and finish.

I believe ernicks to be good, I’ve order some and they look pretty good a few imperfections but that’s always going to happen with fibreglass. Cheers

This is the guys advertising them as " off the Holden molds"

Be interesting to see the quality

I didn't think Holden made the flares...and these molds would have to be 45+ years old

Well the flares turned up and I do reckon they could be off some fairly original moulds because they line up perfectly with my old original ones I'll order the bobtail and front lower piece now with confidence .

Do the ones you bought feel as heavy as your old ones Lee? Are they as thick?

Just ran the micrometer over them and the old ones have a lot of thick and thin spots but there would only be .25mm variance on average between old and new

Cool. If the front and rear spoilers look good I might order a spare set myself.
