Hey Ppl,

Has any one tried to do this mod??

Does any1 think it might be possible or is it just me?

If anyones got one to sell let me know and i'll try it.

Would need some mods coz of the slighlty different curve of the boot but i reckon it could be done.

Cheers

it could be done...
but not easily.
they're COMPLETELY different in shape.
you would need to addapt the curve in 2 different ways to even get it close to fitting.

VR -s boot lip spoiler would probably be easier to adapt. What i like seen done, is the fitment of a VN SS rear spoiler to an EB. Namely mine. Anyone got a spare one?

If you really want a nice boot lip spoiler on an ef/l id reccomend custom - seen it in a car mag once, maybe PFM? and it said it was custom, looked pretty unique..
Altho your car is alreay looking unique in one word. :P

atechnica81 - I had the exact same idea a while back.
I posted the same question on FM Verison 1. But diddnt get anywhere...

I rekon it would look sweet with a small lip spoiler.

I was thinking of modifiying a VX Statesman spoiler (seems to be a similar shape) or I have seen some Lexus Soarer's with the same type of spoiler....

You wouldnt think it would be this frikin hard to do tho hey!!

Im very interested in doing this mod, and Im in S.A as well - If you were interested, maybe we could get a couple of custome ones done? It could save a few $$ if there were 2 of us?

BTW - I was driving up north today, and spotted a gun metal grey falcon parked out front of strathfield. I chucked a u turn to take a closer look at the car....and it was your car!! It certainly looks different to any other falcon i have seen before.
Is it a custom kit you have fitted?

thanks ppl, never thought of a vr/s one...good thinking.

XR~ADZ, cheers.
Its not a completely custom kit but as far as i know i am the first to have bought and installed it.
Its actually parts of 3 kits plus i cut the fin out of the bumper and meshed it up, made some extra holes for either driving lights or brake venting with a chrome dress ring, some aftermarket xr bonnet vents,
(the xy shaker of course, still making the full cold airbox to finish this off)

But i've got lots left to do yet until i will call it "finished" as such.
Sunroof will be installed shortly, looking for the chrome window trims from a fairlane, this lip spoiler, i have xr style twinlights on order, some darker tint next pay....we shall see.

I'd definately be interestd in pairing up with you on this custom spoiler bizzo. PM me ur email address, maybe we could get togher one weekend and draw something up?

Cheers guys,
Atech
