Does this look New?

That's sooooo NOT new. Where did you order it from?

I would ask for a new one that is actually new.

Their response:

Thank you for contacting EcoTech Marine.
Looking at your MP40wQD dry side, it looks the same as our brand new dry sides.
To show you what I mean, I went to our production department and took some pictures of our dry sides as they are being built so you could see what I mean.

I can promise you that this is not a refurbished unit, because we do not sell refurbished units through our website.

Smooth plastic, particularly black is a pain about showing scratches. A lot of manufacturer's bead blast the die to give it a rough surface and hide those marks.

Most of that looks like reflection, the mark in the center looks like a gate mark which all of them will have. If they say it's new and it works I'd trust it.

Can't confirm that it works as they didn't send the spacers with it. I''m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt..............after I receive the spacers and it works.
