I've had mixed results with remade panels. I bought a set of 'perfect fit' SX panels that were basically GP panels battered into rough shape and had about 5kg of filler in them. They are still hanging on my shed wall. I've had two sets of fibreglass GP panels which are an excellent fit and very good quality. I'm not sure what type of panels you're looking for but I'd assume they are not GP. A mate of mine got a set of the 'bare' LI panels from Buzz Solo and after minimal prep and a good spray job fit very well. I think the bare metal ones are the ones to go for imo.

had a set of bare metal ones from buzz and they fitted well plus you can see what your getting if they are unprimed

Also, I don't know if they are all the same make but there is a wide price range between dealers

I won't put too much trust in the belief they are manufactured in Italy ? Some decent remade bodywork coming from the far east, India, Vietnam.

Several dealers who all laugh when I have asked the question, stating there is no body work manufactured in Italy.

Ok, thanks. The SX200 panels I got from JB last year are very good. Needed only very small amounts of filler for paint and fitted well without fettling.
