After failing to acquire an RK spoiler. I went with the wing tech one.
If I could of I’d off went no spoiler. it looked clean with nothing. Unfortunately the trunk was not in good shape with 4 holes and that damn adhesive and marked up.

Man I really like the duck tail look. Wish it didn't come to points like the Batman logo. But overall it looks clean

I know what you are dealing with those holes.
I had your low spider wing and replaced with high wing


It was a lot of work - I changed the trunk and drilled new wholes - but I have to be always carefull with open /close trunk


your wheels and tires are very nice

Looks good. BTW where did you get the unlay for the saturn name in the bumper?
Thank you. That red one was on the car when I bought it in 09. I may have some black ones laying around from when I worked there.

1Redline. Thanks man, I’m think of doing that myself. Maybe a junkyard and just wrapping it idk.

Eagle_f90 my IRL is blue and the paint looks almost showroom except for my wing and trunk. However, I installed the aerowing and I got the wing from EBAY in 2015 . I think it was the last blue one because they were asking about $600 for it. I rememember it was available for months online and I wanted it but $600 ???

After several months they had a make offer price and I offered about $300 and they accepted. I also got the trunk from ebay for about $300. It came damaged so they took some off the price. I took my old trunk parts and hooked them on with the new wing and it looked good - the trunk is actually different shade of blue.

Now the wing has paint decay and I wrapped it in red string . During the health emergency and disorganization, I had my michelins installed and the repair shop damaged my bumper/fender. I blame the emergency situation but they did compensate me for the damage. Anyway I went to see about getting that fiexed at the body shop and they wanted $750 for painting the wing so I asked how much to paint the whole car red. First they said $6500 but then after talking a while $5000.

I said I wanted the red hot corvette paint or chilly pepper paint

Do you mind me asking how much to paint your car?

04 is a different blue than 05-07. Probably why it looks different.

saturn did a service to us with the plastic - It really cleans well and keeps a fresh look

funny video if you had not seen it before:

That is a very old commercial. I remember watching it as a young man. The plastic is nice for that and it makes the car alot lighter. Only problem is when you do get damage that plastic shatters and explodes rather than just denting. The paint also flakes off of it really easily when things ding it.
