lay cardboard on boot, run texta underneath following boot line to create template
Image

lay template on underside of spoiler, leaving outer lips exposed, as shown.
texta along line.
Image

attack with angle grinder, being sure not to cut too deep at edges.
Image

angle grind other underside, exposing the bar inside. grind below bar, not thru.
Image

with a little patience..
Image

Image

it will come free, leaving an el boot shape/flow.
Image

walked outside, and sat on car. (no trimming, neatening, scooping out)
Image

Image

Image

work in progress, a lot of work still needed. (black silicon ahoy!)
(if i had my way, would use SVO fibreglass one to work with; not bloody rubber EA XR)
will paint H C red when finished.

Nice job. I like it, it's subtle and different.
