    Smile My new spoiler ! (Hopefully)

    Hey peeps!

    Just dropped into my local bodyshop today and saw an awesome spoiler for my car, and i would like to know your opinions on it.

    It would have to be a custom fitted job as the spoiler don't fit an astra well, but he sed he could do the whole job including modding the spoiler, painting and fitting for about £250. There are pics of it below; hope u like it!

    Not really my cup of tea but it's different I guess. How are they going to modify the bottom 'legs' of the spoiler though? Cut them or kinda blend them down into the boot?

    What are your plans for the rest of the kit cos if you've got a big spoiler like that I think you'll need a big mad kit to go with it too.

    bout as subtle as walking around with ur bollocks hangin out

    That's gonna take some serious modding to fit.....be interested to see how it turns out finally, should be good.

    I don't quite know how he would mod it but i shud think he would cut the bottom bits off and mould them in some how.

    The thing i like most about it is that he sed that they don't seel many and it would be a one off on my car as it is a custom job

    I just gotta find the money for it now !



    ....And yes i shall be modding the rest of the car at a later date when i get the spoiler done. Front and back bumper, side skirts, lights and interior. As u can see i've already de-badged it the other day!

    Different anyway - be good to see how it turns out.

    Oh and never mind spoilers - give the damn thing a wash

    I'd keep the legs as they are. Make something if possible to go down the back of the boot. Really liking that spoiler tho.
