Can't believe I took no pictures of it...
I will ask my buddy at the body shop if he can send me some.
Amazing where it happened was all of these shrubs so the car litterally slid acroos the shrubs and the damage was minor.. Thank goodness it is mostly all polyurethane and nothing structural..

I put my own twist on them. We bought the black wheels but didn't care for them so I had them painted a satin finished aluminum color...

The roof spoiuler is from DAR... Just like everyone elses that has done this mod.

I purchased it from Elite spoilers and it showed up in a DAR box with DAR instructions..

Thanks guys.. Not much of a build compared to most on this forum but we like it clean and simple.. Debating on putting the trunk lid spoiler on or not...

The roof spoiler pics. So I bought this spoiler at Elite spoilers and had a feeling it would be a DAR unit by the way they described the product and the pictures were the same as on the DAR website.. I cleaned the surface first with denatured alcohol Once clean I used a product from 3M called adhesion promoter it is specifically for the adhesive tape used to install these spoilers and automotive trim pieces. I peeled back the edge of the tape that covered the two sided adhesive leaving the rest covered for now. Then positioned the piece being careful that it was centered and tight to the brake light housing. Once positioned and in place I slid the rest of the tape off from under the spoiler and pressed it into place. I placed a moving blanket over the spoiler to protect it and added 4 10 lb. weights on top of it to hold it in place. Left the weights for about 6 hours just to make sure it was good... Done.















Love the look on the car

I have that in the cart at Elite now!

Trying to decide whether to get the wide or narrow trunk spoiler or not, kinda like the wide better. . .

I purchased the small spoiler at the same time as the roof spoiler but have yet to install it on the car... Still deciding if I really want it or not..

Post a pic of the wing on the car without installing it.

The reason I want the wider wing is because I think it softens the line of the car, is a little less aggressive, and keeps the executive look about it. . .but I would like to see a high quality picture of the narrow wing as well.
