I should be getting the spoiler I ordered today for My Sky, I was wondering has anyone installed one yet? if so do you need two people to do it?

I ordered the silver, since they did not have a Midnight blue yet, and i will install it as is, if i do not like it that way I will have it painted...

It should be fine installed by only one person. The spoiler box should come with a "template" that you "tape" to the trunk lid and that way you know where to drill your holes... :thumbs:

Haven't thought about mixing the colors. It will match the silver around the windshield. The contrast against the blue should make it stand out. Get us some photos when you get it installed.

:agree:
I to would like to see what it looks like, I have been arguing in my head if I should get the spoiler, I never considered getting a alternate color. :thumbs:

Maybe one of the good photoshop people could give us a sneak peek at what a midnight blue redline with black top and spoiler would look like.:cheers:

Are you guys adding spoilers to fix a handling problem you have found ? or is it more of an appearance accessory ? I haven't really been looking for the handling limits, yet, but I have been exploring more as I start feeling what the car can do, and if there is something scary out there, I'd like to know what it is, and where I can expect to find it. Thanks.

there is athread over on the solstice forum somewhere with a quote from a gm engineer, I don't know which thread or the exact quote but can paraphrase "the spoiler adds a very small improvement to the handling and gas milage" I can't imagine it adds alot or they would have made sure all the reviewers got them to try and increase the skidpad numbers:)

I hate fed-ex

Fed-Ex is the pits, if UPS says something will be delivered on a certain day it is, Fed-Ex means It may be there by then or may not.....Fed-Ex when it absolutly positively has to get there someday... Maybe...
It has already taked 3 days to go from Decatur Ga to Knoxville Tennessee...there is no excuse.:nono:

what kind of ground shipment, walking????
if UPS ground can do it then Fex Ex ground.should be able to...
UPS always seems to meet their initial deliver by date, fed ex has already changed theirs twice...

there are 6 holes, no slots, they line up with the 3 plugs under each side of the rear corners of the decklid. all instructions, template and mounting hardware comes with the spoiler... not hard at all to install i did it in about an hour... Myself i like it this way, some others probably won't but that is what makes us all different.. :thumbs:

Nice installation. I'm still wavering on getting one. I kinda like the clean lines, but it is a nice accent. Decisions, decisions.

Nice flame stripe, too.

I had not previously considered having the spoiler as an additional accent. It looks really nice. I wouldn't get a matching spoiler if I had your car.

The spoiler looks great! I wouldn't have thought to mix the colors, but on a dark car, the silver really ties it together.:thumbs:
