    Has anyone had one of these off ebay?

    P-TSXII-RBL_1263433772471.

    Was the colour match and quality OK?

    Has the spoiler fell off the car yet?


    For £60 delivered I thought I might try it especially as Honda aren't doing anything in polished metal.

    yeah. I'm just waiting to get conformation that its the right length as the seller wanted me to click on another link with the American Accord but in the polished metal that I'm after.

    I just need to figure out if to get a copy boot spoiler as well or get one from HH and get it painted??

    I got one of the lip spoilers. It came sprayed and while its a good match I haven't tryed to fit it as yet. Apparently you have to heat it and shape to the curve on the boot. I didn't like the sound of that too much.. The fixing on it was 3M tape if I remember correctly..

    Well my spoiler turned up today along with a white tube of something. The instructions say glue but I'm hoping its silicone. If my bosses go out for a "meeting" I see what the fit and coulour match is like. It seems flexible enough and you just use a hair dryer on it if you need it to bend more. I will update soon.

    Has anyone else stuck one on yet?

    The glue is actually clear silicone so it can be removed if need be:Thumbup: The paint looks good from the small section I've looked at. It needs 12 hours to dry so I've got till 8pm tonight to fit it.

    As its not bolted to the car its technically a glorified sticker so Insurance friendly I guess:Search:

    The seller wants 4 pics of my car when its fitted so Ill make sure the club sticker is in the shot and Ill blue tack a flyer to the window to for good measure:Wink:

    Well its fitted:Happy: Time will tell to see if it stays on the car.

    It took 2 weeks from ordering to arrive at my door which wasn't too long to wait either.

    Instructions:
    Clean glass and spoiler with isopropanal alcohol
    Pre fit spoiler to get reference points.
    Use the provided silicone and smear on the spoiler
    Peel off red tape and stick to glass.
    Leave for 12 hours

    I didn't over spread the silicone as I didn't want it to spread onto the tape. I just hope its enough.

    It cost £60 delivered so I thought Id try it. Its an easy mod for anyone and I think it would make even the non GT cars look better.

    Hmm still mulling over what to do with rear spoiler.
    Still want Mugen wing but ridiculously expensive.
    Might open the wallet and buy this roof spoiler.

    I wish you had come to the HH meet Intruder has a really good genuine mugen spoiler and it suited his car a lot that would have given you a better idea. But this is subtle with your body kit it will give it that touch.
