Default Re: Do you have to modify an OEM GT Spoiler to fit?

Its all merged together with the body work that has been getting done.

Ive talked to my lawyer and finds out that the "auto body" industry is a tough thing to sue or collect from because theres no set standard on time and value on projects. The shop my car is at quoted me 150hrs of labor on my build. 2 months of time and without throwing out my budget its not even in small claims here in CO. My car is still there to this day 7 months later unpainted and I was told 280hrs of labor on the car. Basically if I sue they could say that they put in more work than I am paying and the spoiler would end up being a wash.

So at this point Im trying to stay civil with the shop and work together and get the car done rather than just paying off my balance and taking it elsewhere where I will more than likely pay more to redo all the work done.

Its a really crappy situation but I am hoping for the best. The spoiler is defiantly usable and I am sure it will all fit properly at in the end.

Are they pulling the front bumper and nose panel before they repaint? If not! They need to... Anxious to see the end results. Good luck with your respray and widebody conversion. What kit are you using? Rivet on? Mold on? Hard Motorsport? In for more pics

Most defiantly. All the panels will be removed including the front and rear glass. I moved in the Felony Form overs. IMO the best poem looking wide body on the market.

Thanks, The shop is sticking with the 150hrs they initially stated. I have felt with the fact that the car won't be done this year and that has taken a lot of stress off the project.

I am pretty sure you have a sedan GT spoiler base. It's about 10mm wider on each side. It's not unusual that the body shop shaved so some off. In fact, you would appreciate them for doing that! It's the right thing to do, don't worry!
