    One of you says I'm southern so I am excused from crazy things. The other says I am a genius. You know they say there is a fine line between genius and insane. I just hope I stay on the correct side of that line. :)

    The sad part is I'm not from Ga...guess crazy wins this battle huh...

    So here is what it looks like in comparison to the stock spoiler. Try and not mind the yellow tape too much. It is all that is holding this together at the moment. Take notice that the back of the spoiler has not changed but the front of the spoiler has a more gradual slope to it. This will make the rear end less aero sensitive but more functional and to me more aesthetically appealing as well.

    Should be interesting and unique. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    I commend your initiative and thinking on this!

    I see the leading edge has less of an attack angle and is much more visually pleasing.

    Although I am on the opposite end, (Looking for a longer spoiler!), I like the care and thought you are putting into this!

    Keep up the great work and documentation!

    Once it is done,you could probably make a mold of it and reproduce it fairly easily to those who are less ambitious then you.

    seems like alot of work to do, for such a little bit shorter spoiler. I think the angle should be changed a little.
