Why not just buy it now so that when they have them back yours just ships. You know people are going to do that and they are going to show out of stock for quite a while before it cools down out there in "cantstandmyfauxgascapland"

That's a good point. I'll do that when I have the money. I don't right now.

Am I Seeing Things?

Lol nice! Mine is rusting currently, bubbling the paint lol. I'll be taking it back in to the shop soon. I'm of the mind it wasn't properly prepped. To a different body shop I go!

Yeah but I'm 170 miles away on vacation ๐Ÿ˜ข have to play with it tomorrow. Hopefully mr. Ups put it in a decent spot on my porch. I live in Mayberry so it should be fine. But one of my friends got his and he said it looks identical to the metal one only lighter and the finish is flawless. He is installing his now.

I don't exactly know how I feel about this lol. Would've been nice if there was some kind of notification from RTR that their plastic version was done and for sale lol. I may have to get one myself depending on if I can fix this original or not. What a pain in the balls...

Makes you wonder if this issue went on down the line to VGJR. I highly doubt it, but it would be cool if it did. Seems like a stand up guy, and he'd probably rectify it.

His was rusting but he took it off and I sand blasted the rust away and did some body work to it then gave it a new krylon paint job. Lol

Hmmmm, seems like they all rust then, no matter what. I don't know if mine is salvageable. I have no idea what it looks like underneath. It held up all last winter, and I just noticed the bubbling like 2 months ago...ahhh what a head ache

Doesn't even make it worth the trouble anymore since RTR decided to do the right thing and make it in ABS plastic. And who knows about quantity. I wonder how many were sold. Severely aggravated right meow lol

If it makes you feel better they sold out that night and even a guy I know who bought one when it was still "in stock" got an email later saying his was on back order. So it will be a while before everyone has one of these. Hahaha

Jesus. You'd think by now it would be easy to mass produce the damn thing. It's not like it's this crazy intricate piece...

It's not an intricate piece.. It would be financially dumb for them to mass produce. The limited they are the more ppl will pay.

Financially dumb? Have you seen the demand for this stupid friggin piece? They sell like hot cakes. Sold out on the first day. There's millions of people with the 10-14 body style that hate the faux gas cap. If they just popped out some plastic pieces, they can do it again. And sooner, rather than later.

Yeah if anything they are making the second hand market strong by making them so hard to get. I bet I could get someone to pay me 300 for the one I just bought for 169 if I tried.

I'm guessing they had a trial run of these plastic versions to gauge the demand and reviews before they got too crazy. They lost their arses last time as I know most people got refunds due to the quality issues.

Yeah I mean I get it. But to me, the piece is no longer special the more they make of it, so why not just make a buttload and satisfy the masses? If they only make a batch of say 200 @169$, they're not really making a killing. Make more, you make more.

After some love and care, it's good as new. After handling both panels, I'm glad I have a metal one because it just feels sturdier.
