The repro frames are really nice however the backer plates and the screens are not the same as originals - the wire screens are aluminum wire .040 in the originals and stainless .035 in the repros and the black backers are anodized aluminum in the originals and are vinyl coated metal in the repros. -
In the last car I used the original screens and backers in the repro frames and would do the same if were doing another car.
