    I like them both. Mine is a 73 with the correct rear spoiler that has the bulky looking end pieces. Since mine isnt a #s matching resto, I was thinking of changing to the later spoiler which gets rid of the extra plastic to make room for the wrap around lights. That, or change to the 70 style because its cleaner.

    Yours and the Greening piece look like great alternatives to me. And I agree with above, its your car, dont style it for anyone else.

    Trust me I do what I want and if I think a product has market value then maybe I will sell a few and make some money.

    Got the center section glassed back together:

    It is now 1" shorter and lays back 3/8". The rear profile is still the same. Only the front profile was changed.

    Next will be the side pieces. This will be the hard part.

    I really like the idea of a "classier" 3 piece. Have you thought about a slightly taller one piece but same profile?

    Changing the profile is the hard part. I can easily make varying heights from here.

    Really? For a custom piece? No it isn't, at least I don't think so.

    For comparison I just checked classic for pricing on new OE replacement. $300

    Product # 339433 1974-81 OUTER REAR SPOILER LH $89.95 ea
    Product # 339434 1974-81 OUTER REAR SPOILER RH $89.95 ea
    Product # 480161 1970-81 F-BODY CENTER REAR SPOILER $119.95 ea

    And I can't sell a used OE one for $100!! :confused:
