Do you mean the end caps? LOL

I didn't have any and couldn't warrant paying the prices that some people in the Uk think that they are worth, so i had an old Fibreglass centre section that i cut and modified to make the ends.  Besides i like to be different.

I modify, adapt and make what i either cant afford or dont have......................... i made a remote trunk release yesterday with parts from a Mazda , this will be trimmed and mounted by the Driver..........



and yes i know you can get a solenoid trunk release, but same again its all about the cash.
