The pressing above the hinged number plate plinth is straight on a Mk1/2 bootlid, following the profile of the plinth.

You'll see that the Heritage and Mk3 onwards boot lid skins have a curve.

I knew none of that! Glad I have my original boot lids in decent condition!

Dermot - nice work mate ;-)

Perhaps it's also worth adding the use of the Mk3 rear on the Heritage panel throws up another anomaly as they only take the Mk3 type catch, not the original Mk1 type (14A5696). Ultimately as a replacement panel they fit the hole fine and are OK if you can't get anything else but given the current market are not really up to snuff for the money IMO.
