Picked this up a few dollars at the junkyard and tried a test fit.

I think it could look nice when securely fastened and with the edges trimmed. What say you?

sorry, but i am going to have to say nay.

Why? Just wondering.

I'm half and half with the looks. I might pshop the edges trimmed in a bit.

Ross (byte1032) showed me this trick awhile ago and I rocked it awhile on my 242. It did look alright but I scraped anything and everything . It got removed because it got annoying after awhile.

hey wat if you put the 940 lip under the bumper cover then put the 240 front lip under the 940 lip. i think it would fit better and it would just look like a longer 240 lip. i think it might look/work good. try it out?!??

Sounds like a good idea but I'd have trouble mounting the 240 lip to the 940 lip. The 940 lip clips and screws on while the 240 lip is held on by larger bolts.

A front spoiler will never look as good as it could be unless it continues the line of the WHEEL ARCH.



Not that many people have pulled that off

Needs to be on a 242 Gt spoiler that has a flat bottom.

I didn't like the edges. Once I saw the photoshopped edges, I like it better. It would look good too if you put a fresh coat of paint on both. I wasn't trying to be a dick earlier, just didn't have time to explain. Had to leave to go to work.

This little black duck is not a fan of it; it's too bitsy and add-on looking. The standard 'chin' spoiler already looks just a tiny bit too afterthought for my taste, and that looks even less integrated; body kits & styling/aero attachments never look much chop unless they're near undetectable 'cos they look as though they were designed to be there.

looks cheap and half-ass cobbled together....but if you like it, run it...

I'll be painting it satin black to match the 240 spoiler if I put it on. I tried a few other PShops.
