Hey Shane,Making some more headway, front Alpina Spoiler and Petri on today.
Jim, the pictures of the spoilers on their own on the garage floor look like yours to me, and those are WAY too long, I had the same problem, they are for a Group 2 fender kit. They are the wrong mold and go to fiberglass flared fenders. They look very similar unpainted sitting on a shelf next to each other. Like I said, we made same mistake, had both sets, we even painted the wrong one, the one on the garage floor. Those flare up much high just like yours. He needs to send you the one I have. The spoiler should easily follow the line down from the wheel well.Shane,
Thank you for your reply. My communication was with Erik, who initially said that there might have been a mixup with what was shipped to me. After I sent the photo below, however, he told me that it was the correct piece but that it would need to be heated and then formed to the fenders. I don't have any experience with re-shaping fiberglass but a bit of on-line research would indicate that there is a finite limit to what can be achieved by heating it. In any case, I need to take it to a F'glass expert so see what can be done. This is a not-so-great photo, but accurately shows the distance each of the ends will be required to move in order to meet up with the fender(s).
Hi Shane;I finally had a chance to snap some photos of the progress, I told you guys not very exciting pictures at this time but I am hoping it comes together quicker than I think. I say mini build thread because I am not going to go super crazy on the updates. The hood and trunk are painted, was able to keep original paint under the trunk lid. We are saving as much as possible as you can see in door jams, inside engine bay, trunk, under the back seat, etc. We are going to blend new paint in as best we can. Since such a rare color I wanted to save as much as possible original. It will be garaged so should not rust too much over the years as I will be keeping very good care of it. I will update when I can when there is some significant progress. Thanks for looking, I'm very excited for this build. Here is the Shutterfly site instead of uploading a bunch of pics here. Click on the second tab pictures and videos and then bottom right you should see a view album link with (24) pictures at the moment.
I guess I forgot to add link:
Slick wheels and stance; can you provide wheel size and offset (ET), tire size, and info on your coil springs? I am looking for a slightly larger wheel fitment and lower stance.
