Cobalt SS sedan high spoiler installed on my Redline

As far as I know, this is the first time this has been done. I moved the spoiler further back to the plastic part of the trunk. The original holes are covered by vinyl stickers off of ebay. In my opinion, looks way better than the oem high wing.

I'm sure it's the pic but it looks crooked. It's got more of a swept look to it.

Like it from the back not so much the side.

Saturn should have offered this one as many did not like the big wing


looks in between the low rise and the aerowing

Looks good, but I prefer the Redline high rise.

The fact that it's different is enough for me to keep it. If I ever change my mind, I buy a used rear panel for the trunk, take the stickers off the holes and bolt on the aero wing

Nobody's asked this - can you see any better out of the rear window ?

BTW - Took the wing off my car too... it screwed up the paint just a little, so ..... as I worked for a paint and body shop back in the day, I sanded, primed, sanded, primed, and used the "Duracolor" off the shelf, and the first few weeks, it looked great, better than factory, because it was baby butt smooth - and no orange peel like in most factory paint jobs. For a week it was the best looking part on the car.

Now it's cracking and dulling....what a bummer man !!

Well, besides working in a paint and body and knowing my Shi*, I also used to own a detail shop that served 4 dealerships and did work on high dollar stuff like Lotus, Jag, Benz, Porsche, and Rolls Royce.., .....and I know there is about an inch of paint under that "scab" looking trunk now....so - high speed buff, polish, clear coat.
Dura color is such a crap product.... man, I spent hours on that trunk lid....and spent 7.99 on 6 cans of paint. And in about 3 weeks it went from glossy perfect to crackled dull crap !!

I'm just gonna make friends again with my old Paint guys and shoot the car myself in Dupont Imron. I am fed up with crap stock paint jobs and crap rattle can stuff.

I am going to try it one more time, but this time, Clear coat it afterwards ----maybe the paints they make nowadays are UV protected and expect a clear coat.

I recently changed to the Aerowing as well..

Like others have said, the aero being high actually blocks a lot of the high tech head lights and

trucks on the road at night - a simple mechanism that actually at times is safer because lights can

create blind spots as well considering the increasing popularity of these on cars
