these are some shots of it before i hacked it up to determine how much needed to be changed.
gives a rough idea of how it'd look.

quick update, weathers been absolutely useless in melbourne for the last week so very little progress has been made.

the spoiler is now in 2 peices as i've rejoined the middle section and one of the ends with more of a curve do it so it follows the boot better.
the inner part has been glassed so its fairly strong already.
i've also started to re-glass the underside to hide the cut, so far its working effectively.

from here i'll finish rejoining this section, top and bottom and ensure its all smooth.

then i'll do the other end of it the same way.

after that i have to lop the ends off it so that they come in tighter around the boot line.
i'll get more pics as i make major progress.

the 1st join ready for sanding.

WHY????

Looks good mate, but i think all Early E-series owners will want to hang you. But i guess its first in first served at FTG.

Anyway, goodluck with it.

I think it will suit the EF-EL shape if you can get it to curve cleanly like the boot does.

You should be on one of Bracksy's " I'm a water saver" ads :lol:

Looking forward to the finished result of this.
If you get it right, then get a mould made, I will finally be able to upgrade to an EF/EL :P
