Hi every one im am an experienced fiberglasser, and i am making a fiberglass spoiler for my mk4 geo hatch. It is an extension of the small lip that already exist on the hatch. I am planning to make 10 of them, if people want them i will start making them. They are of good quality when i have the first one made i will have a pic taken of it on my car. The price is $100 per. spoiler, they are primed, but i can also have yours painted to your cars exact color for only a little more. The spoiler will come with either a epoxy kit or bolt on for no additional charge. I am also open for any kind of custom fiber glassing projects such as interior, any body, and more!

Post for more info and or if you want one or are interested in such a thing. Thank you

no i dont have any pics yet, i need to know how many people would be interested in them first, and then ill will start making them, now on the other hand i am a skilled 3d computer graphics teacher, so i could post a computer render of what it will look like. But an actual photo will be supplied when i have enough interest , and i start making them. Thanks for your interest though! I will post a CG rendition tonight for all to see.

if you wait for a committee to be formed and give you some input, try to deal with the pre-orders and people flaking out, your project will be doomed ... it's happened many many times on here before ...
however @ $50 each, if you make them, they'll sell, as many as you can produce, if not to the members here, they'll sell like hotcakes on ebay !
mk4/mk5 cars are really lacking for aftermarket body-kits/wings and there's a LOT of them out there in the hands of young people eager to mod ...

thanks for the advise, you know i think i will just start making them, ten at first. And then when im done ill post a pic of it on my car, and on ebay too. But i would like to keep this topic up for interest sake. And i know how many people would like them especially at 50 a peice, and i got tired of waiting for some one to hope into the mk4 and 5s so im hopping on early, and there will more than just spoilers. Body kits, mirrors, interior mods, and all other kinds. Thanks!

At $50 a pop I'd be interested in one for my car and possibly one for my gf's car...... depending on how they look of course. Any kind of rendering or close example would be really helpful too.

How far does it come off the back approximately? I like the way it comes pretty much straight off and doesn't flare up like crazy at the end.

Well im glad to hear you like my design. And for all you people who would complain how its not completly original sorry... lol Any way im deciding between 6 and 8 inches. What do you guys think? Thanks for the responses! I hope people catch on. I plan on making 10 of them. And alot of people have been asking me about the really low price... Well thats how I think it should be :) I am still making a profit, I just thought of the best way for people to buy cheep, quality aftermarket. I figure small budget deserves a market! And im declairing the start of aftermarket products made by my shop for the newer model metros and swifts. After this look for more cool, cheep products. Its a start!

hi every one, due to price of materials being more than expected, i have to raise the price to $100.00. I still think that to be pretty cheep for a spoiler. I hope interest is still there. 100 is still resonable. Ill have pics of the spoiler on my car by sometime next week!

100$ is still very cheap for a spoiler, if you add shipping with that it isn't that bad... just want to see some pics now ;)

I'm interested. 6 inches would be better than 8, keep it subtle.

But untill i can get a camera im going to just keep making them, only ten. I think im going to go to like k-mart and buy one of those $20 dollar small keychain digital cameras and just post them. lol So yeah sorry every body for the long ass delay, but im going to try to have pics up soon!

Yes Im Interested in the spoiler but i would really like to see what it looks like first then ill give you my final word. If i dont like your style i was wondering if you could make me a spoiler like this one? But if i like yours ill just buy one of those so you dont have to go through the trouble.
