I dont understand the theme behind the design I guess. I dont care for the spoiler at all. It goes "out" way too far without going "up" enough for my liking.

The hood, I like the subtle take on increasing the "cowl" shape of the hood, but I think the scoops miss the mark completely.

The front lip isnt bad, but blatantly looks added on... I think the mantra for all ground effects should be "less is more"... the side skirts are even stranger, especially the rear section of the side skirts.

Im with Valor on this one, I think there should more of a theme going on, looks like it's just kinda putting things up on the Camaro "just to see" what they look like, I dont get a feeling that there's much a plan or goal in mind by looking at the clay moldings.

I like where this is going! BUt yeah the spoiler looks a little too big and thick, I love the factory Dovetail this is going for that look kind of but way to thick. I love that chin spoiler though!! NICE!

Well if you can't say anything nice, my parents said... so I'll leave it at that...

Good thing it's only clay and it can be redone easily. I'd humbly suggest that an actual wing; not a Nascar-type "lip" is going to set off this body better, by breaking up the reverse-point that the ass-end of the car has. 99% of the pics of the Dale Spoiler (which everyone seems enamored with) actually looks very similar to this spoiler, just not as "thick" on the underside... I was hoping for a different direction.

I like this front lip over the GM kit, as it doesn't stick out 3 inches in front of the car. HOWEVER, I probably don't need to say much about that rear spoiler...

Have to hold judgement til it is finished, but somehow Corvette Summer came immediately to mind.

GM makes a high wing spoiler if that's your thing. Have you seen it?

The Dove Tail spoiler is more vertical this one here is thick and horizontal, I think they look very different... similar in some areas, but different in most.

Lingenfelter, we love you, but you've got to change that hood. No one likes it, and that's going to make sales impossible. Make the slits match the front angle please. The spoiler is probably extremely functional, but it would be profitable to also introduce a dovetail or ducktail spoiler simply because that is the one that people want to buy the most. I would like to see the front lip smoother if possible. The reason I'm concerned is that the GM option has a similar edge, and this represents an opportunity to beat OEM. It looks good, but others have pointed out that this might hinder your sales. Lastly, I want to encourage you to keep up the good work! You're company is pretty much amazing in every category, and we're lucky to have you working on our Camaros.
