Default Raised Spoiler

I was thinking about how easy it would be to raise the spoiler, and would it look good if i did it. Anyone else thought of this? Maybe someone with a photoshop? I maybe want another half inch there. Nothin too high.

I like the way the spoiler is stock, it molds w/ the body and is low profile. I think raising it is entirely pointless and would look a bit stupid because everyone knows spoilers don't do much unless you're at HIGH speeds. I'd photoshop but I'm under the influence of delicious beverages.

i had thought about and actually discussed it with anoter member....here was my plan...

I was gonna get some metal or plastic spacers, then attach them to the spoiler and the trunk lid....where the 4 attachemnt points are get fiber glass and make a smooth the spacers, so its all nice and contour......
there is a Green SSE on cardomain that did a crappy job of raising the spoiler

yea i know the spoiler does absoutely nothing to effect performance, if i thought it did, i would have a carbon fiber one on my escort... but i was just curious. If someone did go about doing it, im sure with the help of professionals like you guys it would look profesionally done. However if it did look like * h i t, then i wouldnt bother.
