    Fiberglass decklid (engine lid) fit / experience?

    Hello,

    My ‘65 (912) needs a decklid. I see steel repros for $1,100 and fiberglass for about half that. The car is at the body shop in bare metal so the body man will be able to address small fit issues with the fiberglass if needed. This will be a street car so I’m not trying to save every gram but the lower price is sure welcome.

    Does anyone have experience with Getty or other plastic decklids?

    I do not have a grill either so I’d be looking for used to refurb or ponying up for stoddards repro - https://www.stoddard.com/sic55904121...c55904121.html

    What do you think you’ll burn in labor making a FG lid fit vs a steel lid that is likely to fit right outta the box? That can eat away perceived parts cost delta real quickly. I think I’d rather find a nice original used 65-67 lid and go from there.
