I suppose I should be grateful that Piaggio still makes spare parts, but man are they cheap. The original license plate light cover is chrome with a red reflector, but cheap plastic on the replacement part. Swapping them was simple enough.

I still have to put the tail on and change the oil filter. But a break in the pool sure sounds tempting.
