    Hi guys,

    I got bored earlier on, so managed to back my car into the newly cleared garage (awaiting my dad's '72 Challenger) and put my new spoiler on. (thanks to Matt (Smooth Assault))

    I just want some opinions on whether to spray it silver, or keep it black. Considering I have black/anthracite wheels, and generally a black/silver theme. Also, what do you think about the boot release bit black? I'm not so sure. lol

    [​IMG]

    Any comments appreciated! Thanks!:icon_thumright:

    think you will need outside shots when the weathers a bit better looks neat though. Are those LED rear lights? any shots of those, with them on?:hubbahubba:

    lol!!! Hitler tash.:laugh:

    Na, I don't think I will be spraying it black! I covered it in tape and sprayed it for that picute, so I'll leave it as it is. Don't really know what I was thinking! lol!

    As for the spoiler, Have done a few miles this week end (slough y'day) (Hedge End today), and the car is very dirty, but atm, I'm rather liking the black spoiler. May be thinking differently after a wash. lol.

    Thanks for all your opinions though! Silver would probably look tidier. oh i dont know! loL!

    I had one on my old boot and loved it.

    But now I've replaced my boot, I've not got one on and I like it plain again!

    Weird.

    Get it all colour coded mate, if it doesn't all match it will look like an after thought. Yea it stands out which is fine if that's what you want, but personally I think subtlety is key.

    haha! I made this pic smaller, to save space! I'll try get some better ones in the next day or so on a proper camera, rather than phone. :photo:

    yeah, i'm thinking maybe try spray it silver. Then If i want it black, no harm in re-spraying!:weight_lift2:

    :respekt:
    Would love to tint the windows. £300(+) seems a little much for me though!:sob:

    Yeah, too right, Rownham services. How did you guess that?!? lol!

    That's what my pa and I thought when we got it home... we will physically try this weekend (weather depending). It will be a slow, delicate process, but like you, would be VERY suprised if she fits! lol

    Yeah, I think I'll give it a try, If i decide otherwise, can always respray black. lol. 440ci of pure american muscle! :eyebrows:

    Still...its lovely to get back in the audi after a ride in the Chally!:kissmyrings:

    M27 services was a stop-off point for me on the way down to Bournemouth when I used to live there. Recognised the relatively elevated parking area (compared to the motorway) and the HUGE signs in the background indicating the M271 or M3 junction (depending on which way you were travelling).

    Was a long way from Grimsby!

    Good luck fitting it in!
