Heya! Just thought i'd show yous a few pics of the rear spoiler i made for a school project. Im no panel beater/fibreglasser or whatever so im pretty darn happy with the result. Although, ive got to say, i ofiicially hate body filler after this project.... so much body filler...

So i basically got the original boot lid, glued some foam together, shaped it, bogged it, shaped it, bogged it, shaped it bogged it, shaped it.... etc etc etc. Aaaaaand, i eventually got to do some fibreglassing! Which didnt work the first couple times, bloody gel coat kept frying, so i got familiar with body filler again- Yewwww!

so, keep in mind the photos where its on the car, it isnt painted yet, just thought id check out how awesome i am (ha-haaaaaa) at fibreglassing and see my handiwork. Anyways, let us know what you think, eh i was pretty devestated when i found that a HDT spoiler would fit almost exactly, ahwells.

Yep, good job. If I had done that, I'd be proud of it.

I make plugs moulds and patterns all the time. That's great place to start with that sort of thing.Me personally would have made a plug and then a mould and a finished product.A hard one to make is an Aunger type louvre out of fibreglass.That takes about 300 hours work.Keep it up its great work
