    I'm thinking about a small adjustable aluminium spoiler. About 4 or 5 inches. Any opinions on how this looks? I'm going for the Pro Touring and Autocross look.

      I would love to see more pics of that very sweet looking original scamp before you bolt your abortion to it.

      Original cars like that are getting to be eye candy because they are rarely seen anymore

          If done in autocross style, the spoiler would look better with a more aggressive or defined splitter/spoiler in the front too. In the first pics, not so much, in the last pics, yes looks good

          I agree with you. It is pretty low to the ground on the front. A curb would definitely wipe it out if I wasnt careful.

          My opinion: I love it.
          A purposeful, clean, functional spoiler (preferably painted flat black), could be just amazing on there.
          My only concern may be related to @Rainy Day Auto 's comment where your car looks too nice to be permanently mutilated with add-ons that you might change your mind about years down the road...so (again, IMO) a reversible attachment method would make it even more interesting. Then again, it's your car and it looks like you've done a nice job with the mods you have going on so far :D

          Well now you have me thinking about how I might do something like this on my Dart. I never completely loved the Direct Connection style ducktail and I couldn't make myself drill through my trunk lid to put one on anyway....so this style really is appealing.

          I have a similar looking aluminum piece on my Mustang GT made by RTR and it works. The pic isn't my car but same spoiler (I have those wheels too)...so you get the idea.

            If I did do it I would most likely use nutserts to attach it or some sort of nutplate on the inside of the trunk to keep it super clean.

            To add to the above, I love your car in its stock form as well. I think the spoiler doesn't flow very well and looks "too add-on" if that makes any sense. Notice on the Mustang how the spoiler integrates the side part of the quarter panel to give a much more integrated look. A modified pedestal style might be worth experimenting with as it is closer to what the factory would have used. My 2Cents LOL !!

            I might have to experiment with the stock one as well.

            Did you ever have the idea to obtain a second deck lid to have the spoiler and to preserve the original in case you ever want to go back?
            I have done that with the hood of my Duster because I wanted to be able to switch between the factory look and the dual snorkel scoop.

              I have. I dont know if I will go that way or if I even will install a spoiler. I'm just kicking around ideas.

              I like it and I think it matches well with the front spoiler.

              I thought about this shape as well.

                Cool idea and I like what you've been doing with the car overall.

                I think that looks better. Keep experimenting with it and see what happens..This is hotrodding after all!!

                  Personally i'm not a fan but its not my car. I like the stock appearing cars. Imo its fine to make them stop steer and handle better with upgrades but the appearance of an old car should be left alone. Im not big into the retro mod stuff.

                    I like it, I'd find me a spare deck lid in case I wanted to go back stock in the future and go for it!

                      I’m digging this shape even more.
                      Have you made any progress or any decisions?

                      If you figured out how to make them efficiently, you might be able to sell a few. I’d be very interested in something like that for the Sport (totally different trunk lid, obviously...)

                      No, I haven't messed with it lately. I have been dialing in everything else. Drove it about 40mi the other day with it screaming at me running 2800ish RPM at 50MPH (3.73 gears). Weird thing is is it runs very cold around 160 to 170 on both gauges.

                      2800RPm isn't screaming and 160-170 isn't cold.

                      ARbodies have a universal nascar spoiler with adjusters, its lexan but if you wanted could get some as thick aluminum and replace it over the lexan

                      I think it could look good but the details need to be integrated with some small details. If I was doing it I would take it out to the edge of the quarter panel. Probably put a radius from the top edge down to the sharp line of the quarter.
                      I like the pic that has a little bit of taper to the top edge from the center.
                      I would think it’s even function and might make the car more stable at freeway speeds.
