Re: painting ur-q rear spoiler?

-- [ From: human * EMC.Ver #2.5.02 ] --

I have considered building myself a new spoiler out of sheet aluminum.  An
elegant main wing, with two endpieces for looks and safety, with two
supports to bolt to the hatch.  Powder coat it black and voila!  So if I
made many (I'm already running a mail order speaker business) would you all
want to buy???

Unfortunately I just "unsubscribed" because I don;t have time to read 100
Email messages a day (boo hoo - I like to)  so if you are interested (anyone
) in pursuing this project - and people who can do the metalwork efficiently
take note - please Email me directly.  Thank you.

Or perhaps, maybe them tacky carbon-fiber look-alike adhesive sheet might do
the trick for disguising the cracking/peeling spoiler.
