Wings For Birds.

Ive been considering gettin a spoiler for the bird but i dont wanna go wit the stock spoiler. Ive been thinking bout the Mustang one not the stock one but the tall ones i dont know how to explain them and dont have a pic at the moment but if u have any idea what im talkin about feel free. My question is how much work is needed to attach and has anyone seen a bird with one?

I'm running a '96 3000gt wing and like it. Looks real nice with the lines of the bird. I got a minor rub issue at the edges, but a little sanding will take care of that. If I knew how to post pics, I show ya.

I too want to someday get a Cobra R hood and spoiler. I've only seen a couple pictures of cars with it and I have mixed opinions on it but I think they look pretty good on Birds for the most part.

I've seen one for sale here with a Cobra R wing on it. Can't find pics of it though.

closest I can find is this:

Johny all i got to say is that is one cool cat right there.

96Tbirdman the saleen wing is that the double stacked wing, if so i would think that would look pretty cool.

But ya i do believe the wing im thinking of is the cobra R wing, ill admit little big but i kind of like the look it gives. Heres a pic

Can anyone photoshop something like this to see how this would look, never been a big fan but this is goin $35 ebay.

Uh, yeah, those are certainly not anything like the factory spoilers. I cry when I see Cougars/Thunderbirds/anything not a Kia with those wings. I have a crappy camera phone picture of two Thunderbirds with the aluminum deck spoilers (one of them still had the factory one, a TRIPLE decker) and I lost my lunch.
