Scrimping on Parts
We all have a budget in mind when we are building our cars/motorbikes otherwise the build cost can very easily get out of hand!
We are often asked about reproduction parts as an alternative to genuine parts; in some cases reproduction parts are all that is available.
As car builders, we would always recommend spending the money on genuine parts, if available, as they are made by the original manufacturer and generally they are much easier to fit and give a better finish.
Reproduction parts are made to a pattern hence the term ‘pattern part’ and often have inferior quality of fitment and need far more labour to give a decent finish. Sometimes they simply do not fit!
