    Looking for recommendations to rebuild my diffuser. 4 of the mounting points have been broken off.

    Cheers,
    Andrew.

    You may want to consider the carbonio carbon fiber replacement. Nice piece, very light and Fchat discount

    Considered it. Going OEM route until it no longer proves to be cost effective :)

    Any body shop should be able to repair it - might be an idea to make the attachment points in steel and attach them in the fibre glass matting. Or you find a boat yard that fix pleasure boats as they will have no problem fixing it. The good point is that one side is fine so they have a pattern to work too

    Agree. Was hoping to find a good fiberglass guy locally that FChat members had some experience with. Will go try and let you guys know!

    Cheers,

    I have seen some of his work on Ferrari PISTA diffuser repairs and they are flawless,
