It took me three solid years of looking and asking to find a good replacement boot lid for my Duetto. The one I found was half the world away. In the long run it would have been cheaper (and sexier) to buy the carbonfibre one - which is also the ONLY remanufactured boot lid available new. All others are repaired.
As Osso says, seamless repairs can be made with the repair pieces available.
Cost will vary depending upon where you are (labour)
I doubt that there is a single original boot left on the planet that hasn’t been hit/repaired or is full of rust.
There are subtle differences to the inner frame (holes) between the 1600 Duetto boot and the 1750 Spider Veloce (Roundtail). Both fit perfectly.
The weak, cracked hinge repair is a must - it’s a design fault.
