Default GF-Body STi Wagon spoilers?

Does anyone know where to find STi GF-body spoilers as pictured here? I've looked everywhere but haven't been able to find one yet. They might be useful after the swap is done.

Also, if any of you guys had GF-OBSes with roof racks, what did you do to cover up the sides where the rack once was and where the mounting brackets are?

Thanks,
Geoff

Those are the SOA part numbers for the new mouldings.

As far as the STi spoilers... I'm happy with just the upper OEM one on my swap, I think the STi ones would take away from the sleeper look too much:

MRT sells them and I'm planning on buying DoctorNick's MRT STi replica one next time I get out to Chicago.

Default functional?

Y'know what,

I installed mine on the gf & from what I can tell, they really won't bee too functional under double the limit, maybe noticeable at the track at best. Other than that, they do seem to keep the rain off the backlight.

I bought mine because I liked how it looked, but having installed it before the motor swap, I'm now self conscious because the car is dog slow.

Yeah, that looks functional.

Whats funny is that functionality seems to be dierctly proportional to ugliness.

All those new urban SUV's, their roof top spoilers are likely for style. And if you look at the rear spoliers that really work on NASCAR racers & trucks they stick almost straight up. (big time drag) You wanna mount something like that on your car?

Its a no win situation. Personally I think I'd just lean toward whatever is easer to clean.

Y'know the STI gf wing could be functional but it'd depend on how much air you could get to go through that little hole before the aerofoil & to do that, you'd have to be flying. tickets galore if you're not on a track.

fellfrosch7, where did you get your OEM spoiler? Did it require holes in the window or does it mount to the roof in some way?

To remove my roof rack, I went down to the local yard and pulled the strips from a '93 wagon. I then bought new clips since I broke most of them and just installed it.

Mine is actually a replica, I got it from subyfanatic on here who was selling a bunch of them pre-painted about a year ago. You can try PM'ing him and seeing if he can get more.

Edit: And it just attached with double sided tape. It's made of hollow fiberglass, very good fit, and very light, so a year later I don't have any problems with it coming unglued.

Wait. It's only attached using double-sided tape? Hmm...methinks it's time to take that oft-delayed trip out to Vegas and look for a red wagon....

I got mine at 4subaruparts.com about 2 years ago, got stuck in customs for about 2 months, once i finally got it had to figure out how to put it on. I applied it w/ industrial strength double sided tape and the OEM brackets that go mount to the OEM rear hatch. don't worry it was actually pretty darn solid. I'd try there or MRT. Possibly even allsubaru.com

Good luck

I miss my GF8 wagon

I have a pair of the long moulding strips that I would be willing to do a partial trade with for a factory rack and the segmented moulding.

I think the top STi spoiler looks unbalanced on its own and that it needs a matching STi waist spoiler to complete the set.

As for functionality, I imagine there's little to no benefit although I haven't seen any experiment reports to prove or disprove that.

They may smooth out the airflow to help reduce noise but in terms of downforce, probably not unless you're going like a banshee.
