tiburon spoiler

does anybody know if the tiburon spoiler fit on a cavalier? I have a stock 02 cavalier. I do know that I would have to fill the original holes with bondo etc. But is it possible to make one fit.

need more info.... what year spoiler? which style? but either way the slope on the tibby spoiler would make it hard to fit it up to the cavy's flatter trunk

sure it'll be possible to get it to fit... might take just a little bit of work, but you can get it to fit.

and please tell me you weren't serious about filling the old holes with bondo. get the holes welded shut, bondo is not the correct way to fill a hole. it will crack in time and you'll have to repaint your trunk lid. weld the holes shut, don't half ass it.

^^^ true... but i first saw the celica spoiler on a sunfire (spydarfire? i think...) and it inspired me to try it on my cav, which looked even better (IMO) and is not becoming somewhat popular. so i think if it works on a fire it will likely work alright on the cav.

hehe, sloping forward is better than sloping backwards...

i was serious ... but i didnt know bondo wont actually work well on holes. Ill just pay somebody to weld it for me.

Thanks for the help guys,

Yup, I put the Celica Spoiler on my car back in 2002, or early 2003..

Images at: http://www.thirdfield.com/spydarfire

Since the trunk slopes, I simply designed some custom perches that allow it to have the perfect levelling.

I think it looks great.. much like the RK wing, just lower profile.

Follow the lines of the rear perfectly!

I dont know wha style of tiburon spoiler you are talkin about. But theres a 2002 one on mine. I had to make the middle post longer. But for $20 completed I think it looks pretty darn gud,

Re: tiburon spoiler
Wednesday, February 23, 2005 7:13 PM
too short, i dont like the way it looks, and i have seen a red cavi around here with the tib spoiler you put a link to in your origional post, way too small and funny shaped for a cav.



Re: tiburon spoiler
Wednesday, February 23, 2005 7:35 PM
i dont like that on the cav at all. doesnt fit the body lines. looks better on the sunfire.

I'm very happy with my Celica spoiler on my Cav. I didn't have a lip spoiler beforehand so I had no holes to fill in. Heres a pic.

i dont think he's looking for pics of a celica wing. the reason i brought it up is because they're similar in the way they mount, suggesting that it will indeed work.

If you look carefully you can see the curves pieces placed under the celica spoiler in order to ensure it ran smoothly against the curve of the trunk....

I just got a tiburon gt wing for my cav (similar to the wing on the silver tiburon in the picture)...getting ready to install it. It'll take a little work, but it'll look hot when it's done. I'll post pics when it's done.

I might be mistaken but isn't that the Wings West Shark Wing in that picture?
