Best Quality Repo Fiberglass

I am finally getting around to restoring my GT/CS. Does anyone have opinions on which reproduction fiberglass is the best quality? My end caps are missing and one of my scoops is broken beyond repair. I don't mind paying extra for better fit and accuracy in reproduction.

Thanks!

I have some original shelby end caps, but I'm not 100% sure if they're for our cars or a fastback. Is there an easy way to tell? Either way, I'm interested in selling them and can send you pictures.

They are the same part, only with the opening cut out. A lot of GT/CS scoops are used on Shelby's.

I was disappointed in the quality of the Branda fiberglass. With most replacement fiberglass plan to do a lot of work on it to make it fit.

I heading over to the body shop in a few hrs to check the progress on my car. I’ll pick up the spare end caps and post pictures. I’ve had them for a while and my intention was to replace any repro fiberglass when I painted my car. As it turns out, my rear fiberglass was all original and the side scoops weren’t. Lucky for me, I had original spares for those as well. If you need an original fiberglass trunk, let me know.
