yes I am scaping the pedastal after a few weekends of work, a hands on education in bondo and fiberglass, metal forming and riveting, it just looks wrong. that two inches that its built up makes for one hell of a beefy pedastal. as much as I tried to taper it down it just looks too big. and yes I liked the look with it wraped in aluminum but just putting it on the car to look at fit was just a sinking in the stomach feeling.
it just does not look right with those wide pedestals it looked like I would be getting sooooooo much wind resistance from the pedastals that actual spoiler would not be of any benefit
so square one kinda. I might tap out the bolts and remount new ones in a different spot
this kind of spoiler is like whale taile ones not like the wings its ment to be very close to the car and wind flowing down and over it effectively pushing the rear down.
so I need to either flush mount it, cantilever it somehow, or start looking again for a easier fit. such a small platform to place one on.
but in the scheme of things I spent more on supplies for the pedestal than the wing itself so if I get rid of it no loss.
might fit on a forenza but I dont beleive te curve would look good on a forenza
