Default New Lip Spoiler

The back end of the base bonnie is very flat so I wanted to get a lip spoiler,
I went to ebay and looked around and found a guy that would make one for me up to
57" long, so I went out and measured my trunk and it was 56" lol
I had the guy send me the billing info and now I have a new custom spoiler
it'* black and I may or may not paint it, haven't decided yet.
ill post pictures of it asap, I dont have my camera cord with me.

I guess it'* an m3 style, thats what the post said
It'* made out of really dense, heavy rubber. you could slap someone with it and leave a crazy welt (not that I would ever do that) lol
getting it to conform to the curve of the trunk was pretty easy, I just striped back the covering off the double sided tape a little bit at a time.
I think it looks good.

Very interesting. A very subtle addition to help break the stock lines of the trunk lid.

thanks
I was going for the subtle look
I could have gotten an SE/SSE spoiler from the junkyard but I figured that would be too big
and It would have looked weird because it also has a center mount tail light which deletes
the one on the rear deck in the SE/SSE, and mines still there.

as mentioned, subtle look very nice.

I might consider that when I repaint my folks 96 Riviera. It needs something like that.

Nice!, I'd paint it to match. I think a newer Bonne spoiler would have had a horrid/doesn't belong there look. That looks like it belongs there.
