A GREAT buy - if you have a calypso red car and you want the replacement to look "as original (after respray)"

One of mine had a bit of a nick missing when I removed the lamps - I just layed it flat on a sheet of greaseproof paper and put a blob of silicone sealant into the gap, at the right thickness for the gasket. Once set i trimmed the edge with a Stanley knife and couldn't even see the joins. (As with many things, this 'temporary' repair whilst awaiting a new part at a reasonable price has become a permanet fixture - so much, that I'd forgotten all about it until I saw this thread)
