I agree ... I don't know why they have not fixed this well known issue ... there is a fix on the FFR forums which involves modifying the light ... basically reconfiguring the inside and cutting a groove in the clear plastic. Since I was modifying mine for LED lights it was not really that big a deal.
I believe the mold for the FFR MkIV is derived from an original Cobra (Dick Smith's car). I have no idea where the earlier versions came from. The MkIII is the last year of the perky butt and the radius of the front wheel wells were not correct, ugh. I think they are on the Mk IVs. As for the license plate to fit, it worked fine for my MkIII. Is it the placement of the latch, light, or both not correct?
Well. I also FINALLY got my "ANTIQUE" plates for my Porsche Spyder, after waiting seven long weeks!!!! After I received my new Virginia title, I went to the DMV office at Tysons, Va, to get my antique plates. After waiting in line for about 45 minutes, I was send to the Plates window, where I had to wait another half hour, and when my turn came, I was send to another window, that was being attended by the biggest "fruit cake" guy I have seen. Finally, I paid my $50 fee for the antique plates, and the fruit cake coyld not find where the antique plate were being kept. To make a story short, this sort of dude, after a half hour he/she found the damn antique plates at the first window that I started from, go figure. This has gone from ridiculous to very STUPID. I'm in the hopes that SEMA is looking at threads as this one, and start doing something, in cooperation with "Capitol Hill" and State Legislators. Any way, I got my plates!!
I finally got my registration for my Porsche 550 Spyder from Richmond today, after seven weeks of waiting!! Then I went to my local DMV, at Tysons, Va. waited in line for about 45 minutes, then I was send to the Plates window and had to wait thirty more minutes, only to be send to a third window. This third window was being attended by the biggest "fruit cake" I have ever seen. After paying the $50 fee for the "antique plates", the "fruit cake" could not find any "antique plate" anywhere, finally, after waiting another 45 minutes, the stupid ass fruit cake, finds the antique plates at the first window I started from. What a circus???!!!
Finally, I did get my "ANTIQUE PLATES"!!!!
