NOS score today!

I found this awhile ago, maybe 6 months, but honestly I figured it was a mistake. I've found racing beat strut braces listed at $75 but without fail, when I call, it's something they sold long ago and they had just never updated the website.

Yesterday I decided to give them a call and see what was up. I was informed that 'Yes', it was available. It had been in their inventory since the early 90's. It was also marked down from $208 to $108. So without pics to go by, just his word on what the box said, I ordered it. I hope it shows up and I'm not disappointed.

Oh... What is it? NOS, still in box, Kamei front air dam.

Score!

No, going on the yellow/black one. Least that what I'm leaning towards now. Picked up some side and rear pieces, going to see how it looks all together and make a decision.

Showed up today. Very happy. No original box, but still in original sealed plastic with paperwork. Note the date on the inspection sticker (9/8/88)

Don't know the first thing about making molds. I did send an email to both kaminari and Racing Beat (they still sell a couple Kaminari pieces) seeing if they were interested and RB said no thanks, no word from Kaminari yet.

Is there a chance this piece would be ruined during the process of making a mold? Anyone got the skills to do this? I'd donate my piece to the cause as long as I can get it back in good condition so I can use it.

I would need to see a picture of the other side to be sure but I think it is too complex a shape to pull a one piece mold off of. It might be possible to do it as two pieces which are then joined. Can you see any joints?

What material is it made of?

^ High impact UV stabilized co-polymer material. ABS plastic. It's a beauty.
