The reality of FG is that the resin will continue to harden over time. I have let a new FG part sit in the sun for a week or two, making sure to support it to maintain its shape. It has been my experience that this will hopefully allow it will be fully cured before painting and installing. Now if the part has been sitting on the shelf in a warehouse for a year, it probably is good to go as is.


Ok thanks for clarifying.

Just a bump on this thread. I guess they are back in stock, hence the price drop. Like he told me would happen.

Cheers

So after reading this post, I havenít heard that is a good product, some they say that I does not have any frame and I will like to know if you recommend this duck tail, I know that they are many brands out there but much more expensive!!

Presentable is a subjective term. To me, it had to be a good fit. Not factory mind you, but very presentable; to use your nomenclature. I would have had to spend a couple times the value of the tail to get it to look good. Remember, the ducks have a "shelf" where they meet the main body. It's not a simple transition. That flat shelf would have needed a lot of glass work. I'd rather just grab a Getty or something like that. Way cheaper in the long run, IMHO. Having said all this, I was promptly refunded my money so the seller is a stand-up guy.
