    I found this from one of the groups and thought it's a great idea. The guys is creative. He's using carbon fiber vinyl to wrap the tail to create a look of a spoiler.

    I thought it was tacky to try to force a spoiler on top, but it's just me.

    Agreed. Not bad at all, at least not from more than a few feet away.

    Looks good with 20/20 vision.
    20 feet away at 20mph.

    Would be better if it was just the top horizontal silhouette of the spoiler... get rid of the vertical portions of it and it’ll look fine.
