    hi m8
    grp has its good points and bad
    good is that its very easy to repair
    it paints the same as plastic
    its a bit more fragile then plastic but not too much when on.
    if a normal stone hits it should be fine just the normal stone chip left as the same with plastic.
    hope this answered your questios m8

    it should fit fine maybe abit of sanding to smooth the edges out but just try first and see if all fit snug.
    if i remember rightly i think they are just bonded on so get some tiger seal or like that.
