Yes it is. Unrestricted Motorsports and Carbon by Design worked together on this project car. That is the Carbon by Design fiberglass spoiler painted to match the car.

Wow, pretty honored to see we're on the map in here... Well, here's an update repost:

Ok, so here's where we are at... We tooled the mold for the plug just so we could have a fresh fiberglass piece to make tweaks to. Popped the first one out of the mold and here's what she looks like on the car...

















There are a couple of small issues (moving a bolt hole 1/8", etc...) BUT I'm at a stand still on this right now.

Basically, I don't make my stuff in China, I get it made here in the USA. That being said, injection molding isn't an option for us price wise (we don't have $20,000 to drop into a spoiler). SO, our guy literally has about 5 molds that he made (for different parts of this one piece) that go into producing this one spoiler.

That being said, to make a 10% profit I'm looking to sell these at $450 ($500 on ebay).

BECAUSE OF THAT, I don't know if I'm going to move forward with this. That is a LOT of money for a spoiler when you can get Chinese spoilers for $200-$300.

I would have to put another $1000-$2000 in getting this spoiler tweaked, a new mold made and a production piece for testing again and then my cost per piece is so high I'd have to sell for $450 and again, that's actually a little less than 10% profit.

Would anyone even buy this thing? Also, since I'm tweaking it anyway, I could go ahead and just make it extend to the quarters... Thoughts?

It looks good. With that said I really do think it would be a hard sell at that price :(.
Thanks for all the time you put into this.

Just a suggestion, the top edge needs to be narrower or have a rounded contour to it, it looks too flat and wide on the top to me...

just a side note, the $114 dollar blow molded spoiler I got for my Camaro was made in the USA not China.

I like Bomex the best. I wonder if it'll be sold separate from that ridiculous widebody kit.

Thanks Tim! I know it sounds dumb but I hadn't really thought of just looking around local for a company that does blow molding.

In business you just get in a rut of doing what you've done so I had the spoilers either made local or I was looking around at SEMA for a manufacturer and that is where all I found was China stuff (well, I also found a local company that did large volume FG but then found out they just ship to China as well).

Anyways, doing some BM research now, thanks!

better watch how you abbreviate Blow Molding.. someone could get the wrong idea on what kind of research you are doing...
