    :( Kiwi, if you could have waited, once I get my new scoop, I could have sent you my original. It's only a year old, and in pristine condition.

    Update: I called the company yesterday to see what's taking so long and had to leave a voicemail. Turns out EVERYONE in their shop has COVID... The guy who left me the voicemail telling me they would ship it Mon or Tues next week, sounded horrible. Hope they all make it through ok.

    The scoops are ABS plastic so it is quite brittle.
    Was reading the website on the scoop grill. Sounds like it is only the mesh piece at the back that they supply and then additional money for the SRT10 badge
    I will see if the repair on mine holds.
    If not I will get a new scoop and that grill and badge. That's a lot of money for a small part especially with freight and GST

    Spray the package and parts with Ethasan as you unwrap the parcel. You don't want to catch their bugs

    Called the company today, they shipped it on Saturday and should be here by Thursday. I'll take a few pics, and post on here.

    Received my backplate and emblem. You take the plastic mesh off, and mount the backplate/emblem to the tabs on the scoop. There are metal studs on the backside of the mount that match what's on the scoop. Comes with nuts as well. The nuts spin pretty freely, so I'm going to use some 243 lock tite to keep them from coming loose. Tried to do it this weekend, but I'm too short to reach all of the plastic studs on the mesh grill. Gonna have to get a small step ladder or something, I don't want to remove the scoop, and risk cracking it. Here's what the emblem looks like with the back plate. Total, it weighs about a pound I am guessing, it's really solid. The emblem is held on with some super duty adhesive.
