Default LTW riser replicas

I thought I remember reading on here a while back that one of the members was working on producing riser replicas.

I've searched on here and can't seem to find the info.

I also searched through the "definitive E36 LTW Spoiler Replica Thread".

Any luck with the reproductions? I'd love OEM but that seems near impossible and have heard the other replica risers don't look/work great with the OEM spoiler.

Thanks in advance!

Nothing of the sort yet available. Buy an OEM wing and run it low while you wait because it still looks great.
Also, the only good quality replica is no longer made, so you either by used OEM, used Lester (abrahams), used MA Shaw, or don’t buy at all.

They are in the very early stages of reproduction. That’s all there is to say about it at this time.

Even if it's in the very early stages, that is great news. Thanks!

I have an OEM GT wing and do like the low look but would like the option of low/high.

Also, I spoke with Michael at Abrahams a couple weeks ago and they will have wings and risers back in stock before the end of the year. They are just waiting on the factory in Italy.

Donít bother with his risers, they are junk for OEM wings.

Good to know! Thank you

Side note -- is the mounting kit for the wing NLA?

Thats good news that the Lester wings are still available. They aren't perfect, but they are definitely good. I was told Lester folded and was no longer making anything at all.
Mounting kit is still available last I checked. I walked into a dealer and bought one semi recently. Not all dealers can get things from the motorsport catalogue though.
If you want to see how the lester risers fit an OEM wing message Dorean and ask him to send you some pics. Its not great, and requires modification.

The dealer I've been using has been able to order the motorsport parts I've requested so far. I'll look for the part number and send in a request.

I've seen Dorean's wing in person and if you're not familiar with how it's "supposed" to look, you wouldn't know.

I'll just keep my eyes peeled for an OEM set.
