Looking KILLER!!!

Thanks. Been a bit of work.

 

So today my cousin was nice enough to help me solve my spoiler issue. I took a big wing from another car which is similar in style.

We traced out the profile onto paper as below:

Then we scanned it and used a modelling program to modify the profile outline to match the spoiler we were copying. Sizes were confirmed using digital calipers.

Then the model was extended to the right length.

And then we hit print.

After a coffee and some cakes it was done.

And it worked beautifully. Now the only real issue which was easily manageable, was the striations due to the printing method. These are very visible but I have hand painted Mr Surfacer 500 over the whole wing and then I threw it in the dehydrator for 2 hours. After that I sanded the sucker back to 600 grit and now its ready for primer. Results to come soon.

 

Cheers
