With White minilites planned too it might be too much in white, so I’ll fit it as it is in Black and see what it looks like.
Maybe all that White would look extra-80s, especially with the Zebra door cards :-)

That looks good as it ties in with the black bumpers and trim. :D

I've had a couple of 2drs with bridge spoilers, I have not had white one, but grey and silver and the spoilers were colour coordinated on both.

That's why I reckon it would look good in white :D

Many years ago i bought a white 2 door with the bodykit and bridge spoiler already painted white, It looked ok -i felt too much white- but i prefer the contrast of the original anthracite grey - as with my current talladega red one :D

The bridge spoiler I have is missing some fixings.

Does anyone know of a drawing or catalogue that shows how the ends are secured to the boot lid please?

Our white track hack has the bridge spoiler on grey, like the 16S skirts. I prefer that to a colour coded spoiler on the 900 tbh.

I’ll try the natural trim colour first to see how it looks.

Thanks for your advice.

Latest update.
The car is fully stripped (except the engine bay) and has been blasted down to bare metal. All corrosion has been cut out and replaced with new steel. The body shop are preparing the shell for a full respray.
Pics to follow soon.

I’ve still got the engine to sort when it comes back, but I’ll be behind the wheel by May at the latest. I’ve really missed driving it.

The rear side window aperture was badly corroded (I had no idea), this has been cut out and repaired. All other areas of corrosion have been addressed and it will soon be ready for paint prep.
