Yeah if you could get that forward sweeping style down you would sell them like crazy. The thing that sticks out most for me is that it is a "high" wing spoiler, yet it is done very low key and tastefully.

Basically, it looks aggressive but isn't over the top either. Good Luck!

Yeah, I tend to agree with Taylor on the firebreather. The downward v shape makes the wing look weak in the middle. Plus you gotta drill two new holes in your trunk?

The Firebreather spoiler doesn't use any of the stock mounting holes if I remember correctly

Yea but if you design one "similar" to it you can design it to wotj with the current factory holes right?

If you actually do make a wider version of the pictured spoiler that uses the factory mounting holes I will buy one.

But anyway, back to the subject...lol. Yeah, I think we'll get back in the shop and make our spoiler wider. The prototype spoiler already uses the factory mounting holes so no problem there

Whoohoo! Can't wait to see pictures with the widened spoiler. Do you have a price estimate on a fiberglass version?

I also think if you widen the spoiler to conform with the edge of the car it would look better.

On the Firebreath one, if you do go something similar I would be very interested, I dont care if its in the existing holes or not, that is relativly cheap to get taken care of at a body shop........

We'll be starting up a group buy for the trunk spoiler after we widen it a bit. Shoot me a PM for the group buy price.

We'll have to do a bit of R&D on the firebreather. Judging by the pics, it doesn't look too difficult of a project to handle

I Like your spoiler but agree with the others to adjust to the body lines just a bit better making in wider. And I still like my Firebreather best

5 min photoshop... I made it flow more along the line of the edge of the trunk. Something more like this would be cool.

Rideskinz, if you did make something similar to the fire breather spoiler, or if your newly revised spoiler turns out great you can probably expect to see more of my money lol.
