I don't really like that spoiler at all. I wouldn't install it if it was free!
Unless you do the entire rear end conversion like pictured below it just doesn't match...


my opinion.

I think i'll go for it if I can get 10% off of it. I'd have it painted BLACK and VICTORY RED.....Not sure if it would look better with the CENTER being BLACK or the TIPS......

Sorry I haven't posted these earlier, but I've been AWOL for a while.

However, I cannot recommend the spoiler. Not in fibreglass, anyway. A few months after I had it installed, a crack developed along the leading edge. The spoiler vibrates worryingly when I close the trunk because there is no centre support to it, I can only imagine what it does at speed as the wind pushes it down in the middle. I can only imagine that that is why it is cracked.

So, for the last 5 weeks she's been in the shop waiting to get fixed.





I would like to thank the person from whom I borrowed the stripe pattern, but I can't remember who it was, just that the Camaro was white and had this stripe pattern.

Finally got her back from the shop. They had to re-glass the entire spoiler because after they fixed the front of it, a crack developed in the rear of it at the shop.

I'm thinking of getting a piece of styrofoam, carving out a nice centre support and then taking it to them to glass it (and build in a centre brake light in the process) for a nice looking centre support.

Also, does anyone have that link to the stronger trunk struts to support this beast of a spoiler?
