What is the best Wickerbill in terms of OE Appearance?

I would like to add a wickerbill and really like the OE design but not paying collector prices for the piece.

With that in mind, who has the wickerbill that looks most like the oe one (The ZL1Addons piece is nice, but I'd prefer a 1-piece design)?

Who have y'all used and how does it look? I see the clones on eBay but people say they are made of painted steel (would prefer aluminum, composite, etc).


Am aware of the Anderson one but would like to avoid the CF look if possible, though I do like them more than the ZL1Addons.

Plus 1 on Aero Sport Concepts -- Kurt is a good guy and I love the piece I received from him. He has all the information on factory specs and his Wickerbill provides the same exact adjustment up and down (8mm slot I believe, but don't quote) as the factory Wickerbill. The price is, or was, VERY reasonable.

I have the DT Moto wickerbill spoiler on mine and it's identical in appearance to the OEM version.

My OEM wickerbill doesnt have slots. It has 2 position holes at each screw, a high and low position. They are roughly 3/4-1 spacing between holes. It is aluminum or at least a non ferrous metal and has a gm stamping on the spoiler side of it. It is straight across on top. Looks petty plain relative to some of the aftermarket show pieces. Oh and its roughly .28 thick. and 52L x 3W. About 3 on either side is 4W, but that is on the bottom side of the wicker, against the spoiler as to add support.
A picture would do so much more but I was being lazy today.

eBay has aluminum ones that are decent oem copy’s. They usually sell attached to the spoiler itself. I think I paid 90$ shipped

I made one out of plexiglass. It will be very functional at low speeds. I autocross and I notice that the front end has significantly more grip than the rear. For a spoiler I used an aftermarket piece from JSP. I just sandwiched the plexiglass piece between the spoiler and the small metal wickerbill that it came with.

Interesting option, just for the included 'aluminum' wicker piece

Mine looks exactly like that. A simple trip to a metal supply shop could produce a piece of sheet aluminum about 54"x 10". Get a sander and round the edges slightly. Use the wickerbill that's on the spoiler as a template to lay out where the holes go.

How much are OEM wickerbill going for now?? I didn't even realize they were hard to come by now. Glad I picked mine up from the dealer when I first got the car!

I think the OEMs are going for between 800 to 1000.
