Looks real good. One of these days I will get around to redoing mine again. Since I'm doing it myself I'm lazy, paint is expensive for SFP, and I don't have another car to drive around in the mean time

TNT is legit, the work coming out of that shop is amazing.
That car needs to be detailed sooooo bad. All of those swirls and scratches that can be seen in those direct sunlight shots can be removed with some simple polishing by someone who knows what they're doing.

That is the nicest molding job I have seen yet. Have to wonder how much it cost, not to mention the gas money from LA to Sacramento haha

haven't seen the cf one in person but most of the replicas don't fit very well. Some people mold the replica but you couldn't do that to the cf one here. You can tell the replica cause it has a complete hole in the center of the wing making the emblem look deeper.

I know this may sound odd, but is it possible to UN mold a spoiler?

Long story short, I bought the trunk with the spoiler already molded and I think its going to be a long shot selling the trunk to a local to avoid shipping

It'll cost more money than what it's worth. Don't bother. I hear a lot of people say " why if I want to part out?" I say let it go with the car and call it a loss and enjoy the thing. Unless you can swap trunks.

Wont that hurt the resale value tho? If Im not selling it to someone who actually wants the spoiler? Thats the reason why Im asking

I doubt I would ever have to part out, but Im thinking just in case.
