SFFD103 had a Authentic Wald spoiler molded, you can PM him to confirm or contact wald directly. I had a rep from Bayson R on my first 2IS and a rep from Carking on my 2nd 2IS. both were completely fiberglass.

Not sure if a carbon fiber trunk and spoiler was used but I am assuming carbon fiber was layed over. I would PM the OP to confirm

hey guys, taking my car to the shop in a few days for body work, thinking about getting the spoiler molded, my concern, everyday i open and close my trunk to put things inside ( for work ) , obviously id be close the trunk carefully and not slam it hard, but id imagine doing this everyday even for 1-2 months would cause the molded areas to start cracking...
considering how often i have to open & close my trunk, should i avoid molding the spoiler?

^I had that same concern, but there shouldn't be any stress with the molding. I've seen zero cracks or even any imperfections from when I had mine molded. I have kids and adults who find the need to slam it whenever they need access to the trunk area, which, while it bothers me somewhat, makes me feel a bit better knowing that the molded spoiler can take such a beating. Seriously, with such weight with the spoiler and material to mold, gravity itself will close the trunk fully without any strength, and that's how I always close my trunk. But it'll be primarily how the shop is planning to reinforce the areas that might cause vibration. Other than that, I can't envision anything bad happening to the mold once its formed and its shape has been finalized. Best of luck! I know you've been wanting to do this for awhile, my friend.

Well it depends on what filler they use. I used Duraglass on mine and had the same fear. But, i'll put it like this. I am nearly 245 pounds, and I jumped up and down on an extra piece of hardened Duraglass as hard as I could... It didn't crack, crumble, do anything aside from hurt the hell out of my feet haha. Duraglass is incredibly strong stuff, you should be fine .

its hard to say, bcz soeone hit my quarter panel so some of the money is already being paid by the othe insurance company
plus im doing so many other things at once, so its not a straight up price for just doign that.
if you want their contact info, lmk you can call and ask the guy, he is super cool and by far the most professional shop i have ever seen

yes. its very obvious. look how the quarter blends right into the spoiler one one side, and on the other side it doesnt.
