Question Rear reflector; Cut down or not??

I put my two up on Ebay. I have decided to try the lettering. Someone told me that the one I have listed as "UN-CUT" actually is "CUT-DOWN".

Is there any peticular evidence of one being cut-down? What does an original look like?

UN-CUT (I THINK)

The difference I believe is the outside edge reflectors.

Cut downs have them and real ones from a '75-6 914 do not.

Attached should be a picture of a real one.

I think yours is a cut down.

BTW, Mikestr, the reflectors were not offered originally on any 914. They are all aftermarket parts or parts adapted from other Porsches. The difference is that the "cut down" ones are modified 911 parts, while the "uncut" ones were actually made by someone in the US specifically for the 914.

I stand corrected. I did not know that but I wondered. Someone had told me the last time I asked that they were offered on the '75 and '76.

Whoever it was that made them, made them nice.

Korijo, the one you are offering as "Un-Cut" is deffinately cut. People used rear reflectors from 911 and when they where cut to fit, the cut goes right through the finer more reflective part on the edges. There is only one reflective backing on the aftermarket 914 reflectors. I've had both. Check out the ones on 911's and you'll see the match.
Just FYI,
Oh, well...

The ones I've seen made for 914s have the black border on all four sides........the 911 cut down units only have black border on top and bottom.

Thanks for all the response. I fingered her out, and worked with a buyer to end early. Oh well, he got a great deal.
