Brian, is yours the Duster that says " You've been Dusted " below that spoiler?
 
I looked through an '07 Mopar Collector's Guide, and MAS Products had a spoiler in their ad. No picture, though.
 
The Direct Connection / Mopar Performance part number is P4120358. It looks like they were originally vacuum formed from a very thin plastic sheet stock. The result of the finished product had a bumpy, but smooth appearance... they were very far from show quality. These spoilers were held on with Christmas tree style plastic push-on fasteners that went through holes that you had to drill through your decklid. The spoilers would often split because there isn't any structure under them, just the plastic sheet material you see. The one that I have doesn't fit very well and would twist a bit when installed, leading to the splits mentioned above.

I bring this up so that you wouldn't be disappointed after spending a fortune on a NOS DC / MP spoiler.

Here are a few reference photos.

NO, IT IS NOT FOR SALE.

I also have one of these spoilers that I purchased for 200.00 :) There is nothing else out there that looks like it for an A body.
 
I have one of the Direct Connection spoilers, and one from a guy on eBay that makes them out of fiberglass. The fiberglass one is definitely kinda rough for fit, and would need some work to fit and more to look good. Better than nothing, but its not a bolt-on-and-go kind of operation. One nice thing about it is that it doesn't have all the mounting hole pockets in it.

The Direct Connection one is definitely pretty flimsy. I've been looking into filling it with some kind of self leveling epoxy or high density foam to keep it from warping or cracking. Haven't worked much with ABS plastic though, so I'm not sure what will work. Anybody have any thoughts? :dunno: Something that would pour in and then set up would probably be ideal...

What about epoxying an aluminum frame in it?.

Not a bad idea! Although, I think it'd be easier to just use some flat ABS sheet to create a frame/ribs inside and epoxy that in. That way its still somewhat flexible, so the inner structure won't end up coming through the outer skin.

Believe me, I've put some thought into this. :D I just don't know anything about working with ABS. I've even though about just using expansion foam from the hardware store, it wouldn't bond to the ABS but at least it would hold its shape and keep the spoiler from flexing as much. Or maybe some kind of combination of gluing in some ABS ribs and then filling each section with high density foam.

I may just end up using the fiberglass version, it'll probably take about the same amount of work to get it to fit right and look half decent, but I know how to work with fiberglass.
 
If you really really wanted one of these built the way you would want it built I might consider carving some Pink foam and glassing it. It would not be hard at all. The toughest part would be getting a rough shape then fitting it to the deck lid.

which using cardboard templates to get the shape correct and then a bit of eyeing it... i'd bet you could come up with some FAR better than what we've seen in this thread so far.

(just a thought!)
 
I had the DC one on my Duster.

Once installed it's pretty solid. Mine wasn't too thin.

Not a bad finish, either, like the one pic showing waves.

I substituted self tapping hex head, rubber washered screws for the plastic push pins.

The trick was slowing the drill at the right time to avoid overtightening and thus cracking the spoiler.

If you made them, I bet you'd have no trouble selling them as long as the price wasn't horrible. Keep it at or under $200 and I'd bet you could sell quite a few. Even when the questionable fiberglass ones pop up on eBay they sell right away, and those are over $200 with shipping. And I think pretty much everyone knows that those require a decent amount of work before they'll look good.

Yeah the one I have doesn't have all those waves in it either, it looks pretty good actually. But after everything I've heard it'd be nice to keep it that way, instead of mounting it and then having it warp or crack later.

MAS was a local company here in St. Paul. Unfortunately... WAS. Went out of business. Sold some of their fiberglass and molds to the company CA Performance, who carried on in the same location with a slightly different business model. They also went out of business about a year or so ago.

Sorry guys...
