Thanks, the window spoiler has taken a little while to cure since the paint is pretty thick, its def not perfect but I now have a good tactic for the trunk. I might have to hit the minispoiler on the trunk with filler one more time to seal it off before it'll be ready to paint! I don't think I've seen any spoilers like this one, hope it should look better than the ltd, complimented by the now painted virjose!

I think it should match pretty well... the photo of the spoiler is in the 'flash' light while the car pic is in sunlight. Hope to start painting the trunk soon!

I can't wait to see it. If it works out I will be buying some aspen white and fixing my bumper and some odd and end stuff around the car. Maybe even my door jams.

Looks real good jared, how did you f up the scoop? I borked the edges of my virjose spoiler a little but I don't really care, extending beyond the end is the best bet, I might get another round and hit my skirts lip and grille after the trunk. Should be ready for paint soon and I'm def hyped about the mini spoiler

Bump for update. Have been architecturally unemployed since march, and now might have two job offers so things have been busy in a good way and I'm ready to shed my just another economic statistic status! Anyway today I went back and sanded the 1st round of molded in mini spoiler only to find not enough hardener and parts were STILL tacky after a week or so of drying so sanding wasn't working well. Also the filler was having a hard time adhering to the rubber garage seal so I just smoothed it all over a little and have now completely encased the rubber lipspoiler. It's hardening already I think I got a good ratio of filler + hardener so we'll see. Still in progress, window spoiler going back on the car soon so we can see how well paint matches. More soon.

Nice work, I'm glad to inspire! Yours looks great mine might be a little iffy on the corners I had to hammer out but hopefully the lines are ok. This was my first bodywork experience for sure!

i didnt have to hammer as you did. the dings in the trunk from the hail went away after i sanded it., mine is all nice and smooth right now but its discolored in the pic bc of bondo dust. didnt wipe it off before i took a pic. tomarow i will go over with medium grit and prime it then sand some more and then prime and wetsand

Yea this is totally my 1st project like this. I think the trunk I got was factory new but had been dropped in the warehouse... the corners were f*cked because as you know each trunk is 2 pieces of sheet metal so when one bends so does the other. Hopefully my m3 inspired spoiler will come out pretty nice and I'll have something somewhat original

keep at it xilles!

Thats cool, wingless is clean, really thats the closest automotive distributor? I bet I could call my guy and have him ship some cans to ya! I had 3 12oz cans of 18L for $26... money

Still only single stage though, you can get dual but its way more $$ and concentrated.

xilles that primer looks great!!! I'm heading to the store to pick up some more coarse grit to get my mini spoiler sanded down and ready for primer!

I was going to shave the keyhole but decided not to for a convenience thing... let me know how putting the trunklatch back on works out I helped on a trunkswap once and that dang clip was impossible to get in/out!

I'm most likely going to get it painted by a local guy since they can't put it in cans.I will finish off the puttying. And sand for my guy to paint them.trunk latch is easy.I got my extra cf trunk on it now

Nice, I say do the whole thing! I think you can order premade 18L cans @ www.paintscratch.com that supposedly match pretty well... as long as it's single stage w/curing agent and some clear it should come out pretty well! I just went with SW b/c I work with finishes and wanted to do the whole thing myself. Hell pp me some $ and I'll mail you 3 cans! He mixed it up and put it into rattle cans in about 10 mins and the place is 15 mins from me.

How much is he charging you for just paint if you don't mind me asking? I know almost all of bodywork charges are in the prep!
