My Hawk Wing

These are a couple of photos of my new spoiler.

Unfortunately it has to be re-sprayed thanks to the unprofessionalism and uncaring attitude of the place I took it to.

Not only don't they know how to prepare and spray an item, they also blew the fuses when they wired the brake light back to front.

Needless to say, I won't be sending any more business their way.

Apart from all that, I'm happy with my new purchase.

Looks great - except that you really need to get those SVO rims on soon! The car looks really tough, until you look at the standard 16" wheels! I have the same wing - did you only use the standard spoiler mounting bolts or did you use self tappers to hold inside part of the base down as well? It looks pretty flat to me, so I'm guessing you used self tappers. Can't tell the bodgy paint job from the photos (and I've seen the ones on your site as well). Hope you get it fixed to the required standard.

Thumbs up

Hey Jamie,

Must say that looks awesome. Now your car definitly has that individual touch from all the other Venom Red Xr6's running around.
Can't wait to see it in real life.

Did they have to drill extra holes for the spoiler to sit properly?

Thought I'd mock-up what your car should look like with the SVOs.

Thanks for that, I did exactly the same thing after I bought the wheels before the new wing.

Totally agree with you, the car looks good, until you look down! It definately needs those wheels. Not long now though, I'll have them on after Xmas.

I had a look for the self tappers, and couldn't see them. It does look flat so I think they may have used an adhesive. Soon find out when it gets resprayed.

As for the paint job, I tried to get some close ups but the camera wouldn't focus that close, I was using an old digital camera. There are bubbles in the paint and they didn't sand the fibreglass back in places. Not only is the paint spread thin, they also chipped the paint after spraying then tried to touch them up in several places.
