Question AU2/3 Futura Bootlip Spoiler Thingy

Hey everyone was just wondering if I get a futura, with the little crappy bootlid spoiler that it comes with, will I have to get the boot resprayed? I'm not totally sure, but from what i've seen by cruising past them, is that they are attached to the boot the whole way across the boot. Is this correct? will I have to respray the boot to put on another spoiler?

It will probably just be a couple of screws and alot of double sided tape or something mate, shouldnt be too much of a worry but if u wanna go for the no spoiler look you will have to fill in the holes and respray anyway.

Yeh I was thinking it could be that too. I will if money or load allows be putting a TS50 body kit on it, so a nice big wing will be going onto it.

Phew, that's alright then. Just saw it is shaped like the boot under the spoiler to make it look like it's joined to the boot, got me a little worried.

Re: AU2/3 Futura Bootlip Spoiler Thingy

not quite HSV - i take it you havent seen a T Series kit before? Personally i am one for no spoilers at all, but the T Series ones look pretty good.

Ford FPV, yeah it is shaped to look like it's actually moulded onto it, but the bootlid is exactly the same shape as every other model (i.e. Forte, Fairmont, XR etc etc), so they add the spoiler later because it would be a massive task to produce a specific Futura bootlid, and incorporate the spoiler into the actual lid.

So yeah, it should have about 4 screws holding it on - 2 at either end.

Re: AU2/3 Futura Bootlip Spoiler Thingy

I was imagining some huge wing on the back, but if it's smaller and tidy then no probs.

Thanks for the link fpv, having looked at it, it seems to high for the car and looks fairly bulky as well. Perhaps it's the camera angle
