Looking at your pictures, is it legal to build a spoiler on to a stock spoiler. I would think you would have to do one or the other. Does not look legal to me

Spoiler meets all the rules in the book. 10 in chord at the centerline. It is mounted to the factory hatch lid.

Wrapped the headers


This is the orientation of the clutch slave


First time in the sun in a while. hosing out the trash and doing touch up paint. Finished all the fire system plumbing, one on each side of the pan, one by my feet and one by my head facing down. finished intercooler plumbing. Still need to finish radiator plumbing but that is the red hose in the pic. Two of those will run through the 4" steel tube running through cockpit.

Daryl;

Very nice build!

In the last photo, it looks like there is a gap between the front of the spoiler and the trunk lid. If so, this will be interpreted as a "wing" since air  can flow over both the top and bottom of the surface. This was pointed out to me when I posted pictures of my spoiler. I blocked the underside air flow to solve that rule interpretation.

Manta,

I see what you are talking about. It is just a reflection though. The aluminum spoiler goes all the way and connects completely with the decklid.

thanks!
