got my spoiler installed... pics inside

Well the body shop said they had some trouble with this. There were able to get the top side painted good, but the bottom wasn't as good and kinda rough. they said the plastic was crappy (thanks ebay) and everytime they would sand it, it would never get smooth. But I think overall its pretty good. There's a shadow from the back since it slopes inward but maybe in the sun will be less noticable. But for $25 for the piece, and $40 for paint, I think its worth it.

hybrid spoiler has a indent for the H badge that he does not have so it would look stupid.

doesnt look bad but doesnt look good either. i dont like how it doesnt meet flush with the back of the trunk. and the side view kinda looks iffy to me. i think i like the OEM trunk lip better

I think the top side edges should be rounder... but it looks nice. How good of a paint shop did you use? Sanding then wet sanding should have fixed it... paint and wet sand... hmmm... then again.

Gear I still think that the hybrid deck lid spoiler would look better. That last pic tho was a nice angle where it looks good.

Its good its just taped on the trunk not drilled so in case you change your mind.

Reminds me of spoilers that Nascar cars use.

2 things bother me...
first is that it isn't flush with the trunks curves.
second is that because the ends aren't rounded it looks like it was chopped off, almost like it was homemade...makes it feel incomplete.
