That DOES seem mad. All I've ever done is to use a piece of heater hose cut off a roll. Does the job, costs next to nothing and who'd know??

Is it just me who gets annoyed by replica 'rare' stuff like these stickers? The original ones are printed shiny alloy. Why not be up front about what is actually a useful offer???

What i dont get is why EBay is not prosecuted for selling counterfeit goods, generally.
Surely it would be easy for the boys in blue to get a few arrests ?

I imagine ebay would argue they are not selling the goods in the same way that Facebook argue they don't publish the content on their platform. I am sure trading standards could go after some of the sellers though, especially repeat offenders. I'd be surprised if that hasn't happened on occasions.
