If you're referring to the back of the booklet where it gives you a p/n and number, that's how many you get when you buy it as a spare, not how many you get in the kit...

i measured the channels that the foam goes in and the width of the foam and worked out if i cut in half it would fit nicely

Thx. That's what I thought. The manual just didn't say anything about cutting it in half.

Awesome, since I have a lot of Red on my car this is perfect.

Any chance you can make the other parts metal also like the RB6 originally showed?
