The only reason the spoiler is too narrow is that you have the bigger trunklid. Try a pre 86 one

I think they should fit, its just the 95+ 960s that have the fwd offset

That doesn't make any sense. Did you mean pre-'79 lids?

HOLY EFFING CRAP that's the nicest blue ever! TELL US WHAT COLOR IT IS!!! Too dark for volvo lazer blue isn't it? I'm gonna say Corvette C5 electron blue, I've done a lot of research and I think that's the color I want to paint my car (hopefully this summer!). I notice that you have '86+ fenders with a flathood, nice! And possibly a '91_ windshield? You're killin me, that car looks amazing. I'd love to see more pictures!
