Hey guys im sorta new here, just wanna know if anyone has ever put a bootlid spoiler like the EB/ED series cars on EF/EL series cars.

If anybody with good photoshop skills could make up an image that would be cool.

BTW wat does anyone think of this idea??
Is the EF/EL shape to round to have such a spoiler?
Thoughts appreciated!

Cheers!

I think EFFalcon has been toying with a custom prototype...
Don't know how it's going though.


Buy an ED :P :lol:

If you're talking about putting an ED XR bobtail on to an EF boot, it'd be quite a job, as the boot curvatures are different.
Cheers, Bob

hard to say how much longer, sometimes i just don't feel like working on it, and so far its been about a year since i started.
just no enthusiasm i guess.
but it will get there and i'll be posting pics everywhere :P

Interesting EFFalcon.
I would have thought you would have started with an ED Lip spoiler base and modded it from there.
Starting from, scratch must have been fun :)
Hopefully you get a big burst of enthusiasm soon so we get to see the finished product :P

starting with the ED version would have meant adding to whats there, the shape differences are just too big.
and adding to it wouldn't be easy since they're rubber, for that reason i started out fresh and said what have i got to loose.

i played around with a VN one at a wrecker and i can see that fitting, but i don't think it'd look any good.
the small VS style one may work but i couldn't get hold of one.
