    Ummmm...3-dimensional mirror-image parts RARELY swap side for side. 
    Turning this thing around would possibly put the attachment tabs in the wrong places, even if the exterior shape did work.
    Of course, if the shape did work and correctness isn't an issue, the tabs can always be bent or cut off, and the whole thing glued on with RTV.
    Not the right way to do anything, but if it was done neatly...
    BUT...the legs of the part in the photo do not appear to be the same length to me. Could be camera angle though.

    Here's one some of you might recognize. She had some truly remarkable assets.

    Looks like good rat-rod material to me.

    Yeah, you can still get them for around $25. Plus shipping of course, if you're shopping online.

    There's a lot of that on Ebay. I collect a few things, like old music, and I'll often see an over $100 or more BIN price on the same thing I can get for under $20 with a little comparative shopping.
    Getting caught up in the "OMG it's the last one in the universe and I have to have it today" hysterical mindset can be very expensive.

    Nice work, Joe. Now all you gotta do is enhance the face on the tennis-outfit girl, find photos of the three possibles taken from about the same angle, and run it all through one of the online facial recognition programs. That should kill at least another 6 hours, easy.

    I don't think any single small-scale plastic model kit is worth what you can buy a decent (if ratty) running 1:1 pickup for.

    And Corvettes and Cadillacs. Mason drove a Caddy in the early season one shows, and Drake had a Corvette in some episodes too.
                           (I have all the seasons...one of my favorite shows ever...especially the delectable Della)

    And then there's the cow-induction hood.

    I always thought this woman was most beautiful at this point in her career.
