    No worries. If you do remember give the guy a shout and ask for your money back. Could easily be he had been sold them under false pretences as well. If you point out they are not Yoshis, Yoshields look nothing like those Indian ones, they look like OEM ones frankly, and he still won't refund then I see nothing wrong with naming and shaming or even going to the mods and 'suggesting' that they block the guy permanently. FChat shouldn't be seen as a convenient way to conn users out of their money by selling them substandard tatt by playing on their trust because you're a member. Just my opinion.

    My wife bought me a set of Indian shields for Christmas. She tried to buy Jim's, but he was out of stock at the time. She paid $200 for them, and they looked exactly like the $40 items displayed here, and definitely not of good quality. Fortunately, she paid by Paypal, and sent them back to India. Now I want Yoshi shields. Any help in finding a pair, I would appreciate it.

    I just bought some from India and they are identical to yours, 4" tall and look exactly the same.

    Shields on the right. The ones on the left are also aftermarket of unknow manufacture just smaller than yours.

    When Yoshi still had his site up there were exact dimensions of where to place the shields on some models, those look to be taken from that I think.

    Scuderia shield installs as the dealership called it was quoted at several thousand as they are mounted flush on the fender and back riveted.

    A website called Supertweaks (I just got a sweet custom OEM like cover for 1/2 the price of org. OEM) sells a metal super adhesive metal shield that affixes to there. I didn't get them as mine just acquired 355 GTS has these thick gel stickers that are mint.. I would have definately gotten the metal ones from this site if the car had none. Just be super careful drying that area with a towel!

    Cheers

    Spot on. The shields Super Tweaks sell are Yoshi Shields (as long as they still have them in stock).

    Well I did locate a set of Yoshi shields but they don't match the 355 fender contour - is it normal to need to bend these? I'm not thrilled about it.

    Dave,
    I think you got the wrong shields. I didn't need to make any adjustments on my last set of shields from Yoshi.

    Let me look in my garage.... Ive got a few extra sets of shields laying around. I would be happy to send you some.

    I had to bend mine a bit although they aren't the yoshi shields.
    Just do it slow and a little at a time.

    I also just purchased Yoshi shields from Super tweaks. The curvature was perfect. They did send me the darker ones ( i believe they had a darker and lighter yellow version). I'm not feeling the darker version , so I might opt to refund or exchange if they still have the lighter ones. Unless someone wants to these off my hands of course :)

    I never heard of Yoshi shields being multiple yellow colors. And, they need to be fit. Maybe you did not get Yoshi shields....?
