BB Valance

Anyone have experience with the Better Body fiberglass front valances? I have read that the BB parts could possibly need alot of rework. I am looking at the 935ish with the fog light cutout and the rectangular air inlets below. A copy of a DP front valance. The DP valance would be great - but large dollars plus overseas shipping.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

I bought one in the past for a Carrera I had. It was a RUF type valence. It was pretty shoddy in terms of fit and overall construction and finish. Pieces of bondo/talc/filler on the tabs popped off during install, exposing the matting, etc.

Good enough for DE and track, but takes work for a street appearance, IMHO.

I purchased a front valance from BB and it took me 20 hours to get it to fit right.
