I've bought a few repair sections from Rares. Not sure what they use as templates for their pressings, they sure don't seem like Holden. They fit...sort of.

I am currently working on an old RA28 celica, and we have had to source repair sections (where we could find them) from the US, and from this guy on ebay https://www.ebay.com...

I have done the 2 door bottoms with the bits from craigv2425 on ebay. and they are absolutely fantastic fit, but it seems like this is the exception, a bit of modifying is par for the course, some are better than others. It still beats having to make them from scratch - I am having to make the guard lowers by hand it is complex and time consuming.

Restocountry is just a rare spares reseller, surely everyone knows that by now. I've fitted a few rare spares sections, sure they could be improved but anyone with two hands and a brain could get them to fit reasonably.

Nah, sorry, I didn't know that.. I've no idea who Restocountry is, never heard of them.

My HR bottom guard sections were a close fit. Close.. I have 2 hands and only half a brain, that might be my let down.
The square-ish part of the arch lip was very rounded, not square-ish. Not even close. Maybe a panel beater could've made them square-ish, but if they're trying to sell to the home-restorer..?
But we're a captive audience I spose.

I like their rust repair sections better than their rubbers they give you a starting point even thou no perfect but we can hit them with a hammer every time I've ever gone to rares I've seen someone complaining about rubbers.
