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.





did you advertise on cuda-challenger.com? Not everyone goes to both sites. I'm sure there'd be more interest for these over there... I'll post there with your permission.

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





I'm looking REALLY HARD at this design to see if I could make it work. I can see how it will weaken it, but I'm trying to think of how much so... still be attached at each end and in the middle...

Either way I'm really happy you've started this project. I'm familiar with the process (at work we have a vacuum plastic sister company, i don't think they have a machine large enough for the long front spoiler...) and I just think its funny that it took you to realize how to make these, so simple...

The Challenger lights would create big holes in the spoiler and unless contoured and carefully sanded down, it would be prone to cracking. The fiberglass Challenger spoiler is shaped specifically for the lights, just a matter of obtaining one

thanks for the support!

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

Nice brake ducts




Glad you like my ducts

They work...

What's a fast car to do???, Take the plunge and spoil up some more or leave it alone???...uh oh brainpower working...it's tough to get the floor jack under there with the low budget version, now I have more holes to drill, if there was a template you could mount it without removing the valance... I suppose you can make your own template...gotta buy hardware now, It would make more sense if the mounting & fastening was brain powered to completion and included with a higher cost rather than leaving it in the hands of the installer. Wonder what happens when you hit a woodchuck or raccoon at 100 mph??...not everyone that wants the spoiler is equipped to finish the engineering...a complete package is good for marketing and volume and eases the braindrain.

The first batch is here!



you know where they are made!!!

they took a while cuz the plastic company had to change the lettering so it would show
on the first pic, you can see the first spoiler lettering did not come out too good
but most people are going to open the ducts up anyways

If you are interested in getting one, please PM me your email and zipcode and we will go from there

Heads up Travis72!!! you got the first one!

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention
I'm not forgetting you Challenger guys

Thanks for the spoiler. Seems really well made! I only mocked it up with clamps for now. I think I'm going to use dzus fasteners, since I'm only going to use this for the track and I'll use the cheap MAS fiberglass one for daily driving. Anyway, here's a couple of pictures.

Ariel,
did you size the brake cooling duct hole to fit one of the adapters that is readily available? If so which one? How do you propose to allow the duct to be attached? My car has 3 inch hoses - currently the duct is where the license plate is supposed to be

Travis you have a really nice rocket ship under assembly!!!

Could you please post the dimensions of the brake duct openings so I can to determine how difficult it is going to be to make the spoiler fully functional???

Hey Tom, since you're a racer, don't you make it functional with 'racer tape'?

Here are dimensions to the spoiler cups



one could potentially shave down the cups flat & use this 5" X 9-3/4" brake duct I found

http://www.pitstopusa.com/detail.aspx?ID=23713
there is plenty of room around the cup & I would use 6 bolts to attach it with
the plastic is 3/16 thick all around, strong and durable

If you took away the "script" inside the duct it would be a lot simpler to make the brake ducts functional. Is that possible? I would really like to use the spoiler and put it to the test.

I took a break from school and homework today and finally took pics for those that wanted to know the ground clearance of the spoiler

this pic is from the side walk curb. there is approx 4 1/2 inches of ground clearance


the spoiler is not any lower than my headers


this is how I mounted it. easy to remove

That measurment is realtive to what you have the ride height set at. Do that same measurement on flat gound. Then measure the height of the top of the fender lip to the ground. Some cars might sit higher and have more spoiler clearance.
