    I need advice on fabricating a new front spoiler

    Has anyone ever done their own? I was thinking of trying a piece of sheet metal from Home Depot and trying to work with that somehow. Any suggestions? Expensive fiberglass and carbon are out since I have no job.<br>"Winning...you can't teach that" "But losing is starting to feel natural"

    Back in my Datsun 510 days we used to use aluminum sheet metal about an 1/8" thick (maybe less). We would then get rubber base molding (used primarily in office buildings) and attach it to the bottom of the air dam by using small bolts and a aluminum backing strip. The rubber would act as a wear strip/protector and could be replaced. The aluminum air dam worked well on the 510's and 710's, but, did not conform to the Z-cars very well.

    Try calling Jim at Passport Automotive in Toleado, Ohio. I'll try and get a #. Has a mold and does great glass spoilers.
