Anyone seen this guy or perhaps bought a genuine EL GT Snorkle from him?

Well....I bought one from him recently and when i took it out of the packaging, it didnt look very genuine to me.
No Ford stamp on it, and no screw holes.
Yep..! GENUINE MY A#@...!

Nope. Looks nothing like the photo.
I doubt Ford would expect you to drill your own screw holes.

maybe they sent you the wrong one by mistake - you should really take it up with the seller!

$37 from Ford?
I paid $45 plus postage for a copy.
Oh well. That'll teach me.
Always ring Ford first. They can sometimes suprise you with their reasonable pricing.

put up a pick of what you got sent, was probably an au xr one if it needs holes drilled.

but the pick on that first link is an EL-GT one.

FORD don't have them anymore, they are out of stock. Last quoted price was last year and that was $57.00.

Correct me if im wrong, but i am quite sure that every genuine ford component has the ford stamp on it.
My stock snorkle had it. I see no reason why this one shouldnt.

If it's not 'genuine' I dunno where else they got it from.
Highly doubt Darren is running an injection moulded plastic factory, specialising in counterfeiting EL GT snorkels.
