    I don't believe he's doing the spoiler set but he did do some trunk lids with integrated spoilers. Best bet is to ask him.

    Hey flnbrd :
    I purchased one of his early FIRST SETS and was grossly disappointed . All the pieces were so ' THIN ' you could
    almost ' see through them ' . I installed the Spoiler on a car , PAINTED it .. and one week later parked the Sun , the spoiler has ' waves' in it .. The end pieces were also problematic .. Holes wouldn't line up .. had to purchase different bolts and make my own set up to install... Could Never get them to Line Up !! I took all those pieces OFF my car .. Found a REAL spoiler and Ends and after painting them AGAIN .., re installed them on my car . I never attempted to return them reasoning that if I DID ship them back ... What could he do ?? Make them THICKER .. ?? Nope .. there's nothing like ' factory pieces ' ..Just thought I'd pass this info on folks .. I'm not trashing the dude .. But I reason " if you're going to make a product" , you should make it RIGHT !! I manufacture Aluminum Horse Stalls and we have high standards in the ' Quality Control ' areas and stand behind our work ! Just my humble opinion folks .. I suggest you look these items OVER to determine if he has IMPROVED his components.. if you're considering ordering from this dude.

    He is still making them. I messaged him last night and he said he had a few in stock and is still producing them.

    Currently at school. I will try to get some pictures from him when I get home. It's really nice.

    Maybe he's improved his process ?? You'll be able to determine that immediately . I wish you success !
