How thick is the GRP on say, a set of bumper lips or a Zender bumper from AutoDS? Presumably the thickness will be the same on all parts, but are they solid or a bit flimsy?

I'm after a good genuine (plastic) set of the above but I reckon I'll be waiting for a good while longer, so I'm considering copies.

We've got a Silk Cut Jaguar in work which has a GRP body that's about 25mm thick. It's rock solid. How thick are we talking for AutoDS? 5mm?

Agreed. I've had a few bits and pieces from Auto DS over the years and I can only highly recommend them.

The LE skirts are such a good fit, they are almost a 'press fit'

That's good to hear. I've got some plastic skirts so ideally I'd like plastic lips but at £60ish for a GRP set, I'm becoming tempted.

I wanted to buy the bumper but the seller wouldn't allow postage, even if I arranged.

I had in my watch list out of interest, no intention of buying. Thought it would go for more than the £87.73 ! Two bids only.

I got outbid on these at the last second grr but I'd already agreed with the seller that if I couriered an empty box to him, he would put the parts in, seal it and send it back so I'm not sure why he wouldn't do it for you? confused

I asked early on so maybe the seller realised that they were limiting their market by refusing to post. I'd have paid more than the final total to get that bumper before the end of the auction.
