Nice surprise in the mail this morning, when a package of Porsche 911 backdate parts I was expecting from EB Motorsport turned out to be a pair of lightweight Porsche 911 rear lights instead.

I’ve been keen to check these light weight parts out for a while, and they do not disappoint. Finished to the usual excellent EB standards, the bodies feature brass inserts for the standard lens screws, and come with bulb holders, and bulbs.

Moulded in highly resilient composite materials, the units are a direct swap for the rust-prone originals. A set saves over three kilograms versus the factory parts. I think the boys use these on the race cars so they must be sturdy parts.

Most amazing was the closeness of each piece when weighed on the digital scales: within 10g of each other  at 202g versus 212g. And that could well have been the bags.

When we think of fibreglass parts, we think of words like wobbly, flimsy and amateur. None of these words come to mind here: I might offer one up to the Orange and see how it fits (before they get ‘lost’ in my garage). The bodies are £280 a pair from EB direct, or similarly priced from European outlet, Twinspark Racing, or via EB Motorsport distributors Rothsport Racing in the USA.
