Black rear spoiler

Do we like?

Done as the original was very pitted and this was a white one in mint condition.

yep. Looks good to me.

The hoop spoiler on the Digit (which I know is not genuine) is black and I think looks ok.

But.... the little wedge bit at the bottom of the screen needs to be black too in my opinion.
this might be a signature

Ubercool, really like it. Might try it on the tizzy-d as I have a brand new genuine BX rear spoiler here!

Looks good, would be nice if it as body coloured.

Did you have this spoiler oven-dried - essential to avoid future break-out of acne-like rash. And I'm not joking BTW :)

I have a gunmetal P1 boot spoiler if anyone wants to collect it at FCS FOC :D
In fact probably have a P2 one as well which can go for a beer 8)

BTW looks good Mr B slightly retro similar to the early non painted lip spoilers
:D

I was going to paint the wedge on the hatch but I ran out of paint :oops: I would have prefered a colour coded one but i can't seem to find the colour in spray cans now. I didn't oven dry the spoiler first but its been dry stored for a month and was in good condition with no pitting.

Halfrauds will mix to your colour Mr B. If you take your car down to them they`ll mix it then and there and you can offer it up to the car before you spray it and if it`s wrong they`ll re-mix it until it`s right.

Tescos are now doing a rang of valeting supplies and motoring bits and bobs, and I must say there quite good, opunds cheaper than halfords!

Possibly - there are 2 BXClub stickers on the Red One - this car has a proven track record of reliability.
There was 1 sticker on Vera - that is now a source of spares for the North West BX constituent.
My caravan also has 1 BXClub sticker - that nearly died last summer on its jaunt to Somerset.
The AX had one sticker and wound up being dumped in Fleetwood dock owing to its sheer shiteness
The ZX had one sticker and you KNOW what happened to that....
I rest my case!
