This is a post that I am dreading typing, but I am getting close to desperate now...

I want to know if anyone has had experience with the fake Project G corner flare that's on ebay?
This is what I'm talking about:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/GF-Style-Rear-Fender-Corner-Flare-Urethane-Fits-90-97-Mazda-Miata/281760708080?_trkparms=aid=222007&algo=SIM.MBE&ao=1&asc=20131003132420&meid=53bd40cbb634469299a28a19045c728e&pid=100005&rk=3&rkt=12&mehot=pp&sd=271943184378&itm=281760708080&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851

Before all the "don't buy fake ****" replies start flying in - I want the genuine Project G Corner Flare/side skirt set up, badly. However I've been waiting for ****-ever for them to find a way to produce them again, and it seems like a used set never comes up for sale. I waited soo long that I purchased a set of shitty fake ebay Project G flared side skirts like a year or two ago.

Last month on Project G's website it said they had 3 left in stock, so I ordered a set, only to receive an email this morning that it was an error that the website allowed me to purchase them. They are still looking for a way to produce these again without a substantial price increase. So again, I take my spot on the bench waiting it out...

Please someone, anyone... tell me if these ebay corner flares are of decent quality. I am painting the car in like 1.5 to 2 months, and am planning to get these painted to match at the same time.

A few years ago, they were alright. I helped install a set on a friends car. They fit like I would expect any aftermarket body panel to. I wouldn't run in fear from them for fitment woes if the genuine article isn't available.

Honestly at that price point I think they would be worth "rolling the dice" on, Jay, based on the pics. If nothing look at it as a opportunity to help other miata enthusiast make a informed decision in the future. ;)

Alright... well... I'm going to hold out hope that a used genuine set pops up for sale in the next couple weeks... but if not I guess I'm forced to buy these ebay ones. Thanks for the responses!

MX5 2nr - I have a genuine set of the Project G corner flares that I could part with.

They would be shipped from Australia though and are painted to match my car (Silverstone).

Pm me if you are interested.

To close the loop on this, for anyone that was wondering...

I've decided to go a completely different route, and *should* be receiving Garage Star side skirts in the mail at some point...
