Does anyone know of any spoilers that are the right size to fit a cde? An old foam one doesn't as I've recently found out, nor does a sierra hatchback spoiler (yes I've been experimenting) i think a sierra sapphire one would but that's way too expensive a gamble, if anyones got any ideas then please I'd love to hear them

Cheers

The CD Carlsson had a raised spoiler. But like you say, super super rare.

Cut and shut?

Or how about this :

https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/292779008096?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=292779008096&targetid=522579834863&device=m&mktype=pla&googleloc=9045025&poi=&campaignid=1782815718&mkgroupid=70885936762&rlsatarget=aud-629407025185:pla-522579834863&abcId=1139126&merchantid=6995734&gclid=CjwKCAjwyqTqBRAyEiwA8K_4O_bBi-27zbl_QrgHzL9pigNpPCcNT-GybVFK4Lw1cGDpHfePFqYytxoC3TkQAvD_BwE

Failing that, the other Cosworth....... Mercedes 190E spoiler?

I did think merc 190, about the same size, put it this way a volvo 740 spoiler wont fit, well too big and neither will the old 9000 cc spoiler but a sierra hatchback spoiler just about fits which is where my sapphire idea came from, from what i can gather the griffins had raised spoilers

Edit : Theres a carlsson spoiler on ebay for £250, shows how rare for that sort of money lol

i think omonny bough the last raised one i saw sell about 5 years back does look good on his car

id be making a mould at 250 quid have a go whats the worse that can happen you make a big mess
my bros made some fab fiberglass mould things in the past when he could be arsed pre kids
he knew nowt just self taught trial and error then did vacuum forming stuff
the modern materials make life easier have a go mate

im good at ideas its following through the arthritus wont allow now :wall:

if you could borrow one and make a poly mould off it maybe
then use a sandable foam to make the spoiler
i don't know what newfangled things are about nowadays

vacuum formings not as hard is you think my bro worked at techplas in sudbury doing vac forming
he make some wicked moulds out of old crap and some stuff turned out amazing some not so good but more good than bad

i cant believe more folk dont do it
i wanted to make some much nicer 9000 bumpers i got spare bumpers ready then austi arthritus kicked in so the idea went away

Sorry to hear that, always something standing in the way of following thru with great ideas.

I'll definitely have a look into the moulding thing though, sounds like the most risk free route anyway lol bar actually finding a cde spoiler, i suppose 3d printing would be another route but probably the least cost effective, this is my first foray into modifying and to be honest it has resulted in me doing more damage than good haha

Easiest is to cut and shut an existing one , cut out the excess from the centre and glass it back together.
