    Yay...or Nay....

    I got this delivered for free along with a Mustang spoiler and 4 17" rims. I love this Evo 8 spoiler on my SL. Unfortunately I have to cut an inch or so out to make it fit. And reshape the bottomed a bit. Its gonna be a Blast I'll post picks for fun. INLUDING a carbon fiber refinishing writeup... 20190126_195149.jpg

    I think the Lancer is a little bigger car than an S series and so the wing looks less out of place on there than on your car... I don’t like it with your unpainted bumpers and such but, hey, it’s your car, do what you like...

    Just a fair warning though, your mileage will likely take a hit from the big wing, as would your top speed...

    Looks like you are riding a little low in the rear. Have you checked your struts lately?

    It doesn’t look bad in black, gotta ask though, what settled you on black?

    Well since I was painting at home I had limited options...I live in apartments so normal painting methods with air compressors and such. So spray paint it was...last time I spray painted a car I used gloss high performance enamal... came out great even with out clear..this time I wanted as little "finishing" as possible. I found Satin Canyon Black at Walmart for 4 bux a can. I loved the satin...it looks great. Plus I have satin red I will incorporate soon. I almost went flat but I thought that looked too much like an unfinished project. Red and black is the color scheme I chose because the free parts I started to accumulate were red...and I've had a red car so black it is this time...I just want to try and get the wing on b4 Feb. 17 for my first autocross. I do t care that the wing will make me slower...but I will stand out....and the wing is so damn big on the saturn that maybe if I go fast enough I'll just fly away lol
