I am going to have black ABS plastic versions of my fiberglass front spoiler made
and was wondering if anyone else had any interest in these?


I will also add the brake duct holes to the backside so that anyone else could open them up if they wanted to


the end product would look similar to this

if anyone else is intrested let me know
gives me a quantity to be made
thanks

I have been kicking around the idea of one those for my Barracuda. What is a guess on cost?

The cost of the mold is the really expensive part
I will have to eat that for myself $$$
I have no info yet on the cost of the plastic but it shouldn't add too much
I paid a couple hundred for the fiberglass spoiler
IF the ABS versions would sell I would price them around that

I need to know the demand first,
without that you can't have supply

they will be made in Northern California!
that is a fact

How far off are they from Challenger front spoiler?

the main difference is the two lights the Challengers have. I'm not sure if the 71 Cudas are in the same position as well.

I thought about it on the initial design and the only compromise right now,
is that you would have to remove material from the ABS spoiler to get it to fit.

the best soultion is to make a mold off an actual Challenger spoiler
but that would double the cost and no one would want that

I don't have a Challenger but I don't want to neglect those owners as well

The prototype ABS spoilers are here!
I had two different versions made. ducted & non-ducted


detail pics of the ducts


other side


backside view
anyone can open these up and use them for actual brake ducts


the plastic is thick and the whole spoiler is really strong. a dime for reference


close up texture shot


pic on my car
yeah I know, I need a new grille and my car is a bucket


but at least the spoiler is cool


The production spoilers will be the ducted ones and will not be ready until January 2010
only because I will be out of state for the holidays

I need to know if more people want these spoilers
because it only makes sense to have them made in batches

if you want one, please PM me your name and zipcode so that I can figure out the UPS shipping

pricing is not set yet but the
more units made the less it is per unit

Ok now that you have a picture of the prototype, I will pass this link onto the road race/handling guys. I know some of them have 70 and 71 Cudas and you will probably sell something to at least one of them.

I would be interested if modifications to fit a Challenger were straight forward.

I likely would be interested in getting one of each. I would think anybody that uses one for any kinda of spirited driving would quickly understand how vulnerable a front spoiler is on a lowered agrresively driven car. Therefore 2 for me.

If you need/want bigger production numbers, build a clone for A bodies, so I won't have to cobb this together again.

And you've got a great idea

First I'd like to say thanks for your work on this.
But being a Challenger owner I think I'll wait to see a brave Challenger owner try some modifcations to there spoiler first.

I'm serious about this, too, but I want to see a price before a final commit

How does it attach to the valance...
Mounting hardware?? Template?
Brain factor???

Here is the low budget version, MAS style.
Yes it works, easy to install, uses existing holes, very little brain required

First time on Moparts I've ever heard anybody trying to conserve brainpower, I've got to think about that.

Nice brake ducts

I know anticipation kills so here are answers to some questions.

1. Yes they are still on track. I just started school again yesterday and have not checked with the plastic company. Ducted versions only

2. $200.00 + shipping. I will ship UPS so that it's insured and you get a tracking number. From 94520 to the east coast is approx $55-60 dollars but will vary according to zipcode

3. Can't reduce price since not enough demand. I was hoping for more interest in the spoiler and it is just not there and even then I am not breaking even. Oh well that is life. I'll be happy knowing my spoiler will be on a few other Cudas besides mine.

4. No Challenger version and I do not recommend modifying since it will weaken the spoiler. I have to get a fiberglass Challenger spoiler to do it properly

5. You have to drill your own holes. Use your own stainless hardware with nylock nuts to make it easily removable.

6. Installation is simple: remove the valance, line it up midline and front edge & drill holes
I used 8 bolts total with 16 large fender washers. There will be gaps but the spoiler will conform when bolted down

7. There are no wavy spots on the spoiler, that is just the light in the pics. I would paint the spoiler just to be safe from UV.


I'll post more pics and details when I get the first batch.
oh yeah I just field tested the spoiler on the freeway. My AAR hood exhibited zero hood lift at triple digits with the spoiler, compared to when it used to lift up at around eighty without the spoiler. So I guess it works

thanks for your patience
