ZL1 Carbon Rear Spoiler

Has anyone found a rear spoiler that looks exactly like the one on the 'ZL1 Carbon' prototype?

As mentioned above, Alan at G3 Composites makes them, as long as you are not in a hurry. I waited 10 months for this exact spoiler then it didn't fit. For the last 8 months of the 10, I was told it was shipping the following week, and was even supplied pics of a nearly complete spoiler (which turned out was NOT mine). When I did receive it quality and fit was poor and I am sending it back. Maybe if you are local your experience will be better, but he has lost any opportunity at my future business after my experience.

Justin,

Are you representing a mod or fabrication shop? Or do you have information on one?

Just curious. Really would like to consider this for my car. I don't really have mods yet . . . getting picky.

Really fell in love with the carbon wing with the aluminum lip. (or however it's described.)

I have a CRT and had Alan make me front and rear bow ties in kevlar which matches pefectly, they did take forever but he also makes a kevlar rear spoiler for us CRT owners, don't know about the fit issue but you do need to be patient if fact you have to forget about it so when it shows up your'e surprised.

Geez, I'd like one but no way would I wait that long, reminds me of how CAI Inc was stringing their customers along.

Yes, he is very slow...but he does good work if you have patience. It's been worth the wait. The finished product is remarkable!

Patience, HA! That's a joke, right? 10 months waiting on a product and I needed to be patient? Or even forget I gave a vendor money so I will be surprised when it shows up? Who are you kidding? When I have paid in full for a (not cheap) product, and am told it is shipping the following week and 8 months later I am still being told the same story, my patience had been fully expended.

Ultimately, I did receive my spoiler from Alan, but as I mentioned it had fitment issues and the finish was dull and hazy. Definitely nowhere near the quality I was told I would receive after numerous phone calls with (and promises from) Alan. I am sending back the spoiler and I will hope I get my money back. Obviously, others in this thread have been waiting the entire time as well. I hope Sam gets his spoiler soon, and that it doesn't have the same issues mine had. I know there are others that are waiting too. If I posted the pics and videos of my spoiler issues, you would understand where I am coming from.

Sorry OP.

GM just needs to start making this part for real so we can purchase the real deal.

I am one of those in the same boat, a lot of promises but no product.

I'm sorry, did I miss a meeting here?

I don't mind taking an @$$ kicking for the things I've done (being slow is the top of my list), but it's not exactly fair for me to stand idly by while someone only tells half the story.

You'll all have to forgive me if I don't keep all the user names straight, since we do so much with so many, but I'm only aware of one spoiler that ever had fitment issues and the owner STILL tried to use a nut in an attempt to force it down onto the decklid, over tightening it, which broke the stud in the spoiler. (if it didn't fit and was so terrible, why try to put it on the car in the first place?)

That kind of damage isn't repairable, nor is it covered under any reasonable warranty offerings from ANY company and I STILL offered to try to work something out with him.

In fact, it's been more than a month since I offered to try to work something out with the owner, but I have yet to receive the spoiler for inspection.

So, if thats you, please send the spoiler back for inspection, per our prior conversation.

Or not.

Given the damage caused by improper installation, and us having reached was I thought was an arrangement for me to try to do something to take care of you, yet now you're treating me like a dirty scammer who stopped answering emails, I'm not sure how it benefits me in any way to really do anything for such damage.

If you want to keep it so you can complain and tell people I screwed you, that's up to you, but at that point there's no reason for me to even consider taking back a spoiler damaged in a way that was unrelated to manufacture.

That'd be a Standard position taken by ANY vendor.

As HawkGirl said, and as I've said repeatedly: we're slow, but never dishonest. We stand behind the work and have many satisfied clients like HawkGirl to show for it.

Unfortunately, we've experienced some serious and mutually painful growth and staffing challenges that have certainly impeded growth.

The most important thing is that we continue working to fill any straggling orders while we've redoubled our efforts to speed up new orders to completion.

I now understand why so many carbon companies go under and I think we've done a better than average job of setting ourselves up to be here to provide quality parts and service for the long haul.

Is it ever going to be 100% perfect 100% of the time?

Unfortunately, not.

... But that doesn't mean we don't make that our goal every time we put the key in the lock every day.

So, I sincerely apologize to you or anyone who has had to endure a lengthy delivery time. We're doing our best to get faster and better everyday.

Please feel free to email me directly at Alan@g3carbon.com should you or anyone else need assistance, service, or support.

Thanks,
Alan

Oh, and we have two spoilers going out this week and the bladed versions will ship next.

I believe Sam and Eric are this week's shipments.
