Rear Spoiler Accent Trim VRX?

Postby Lancer1993 » Sat May 16, 2015 9:04 pm

In my continuing search for DIY options does anyone have a cutout of the Accent Trim for the VRX spoiler, I've seen some over priced options on eBay but was hoping to make some for my Lancer using cheaper carbon fiber wrap.

Here is a sample photo of the way more expensive genuine ones from Mitsy.

Maybe in yellow!

The main reason I wanted to do the CF wrap is I have some and my Lancer being black you need something to make the accents stand out more than even flat black dip.

For some reason the patterns for this and other trip like the door B pillar and internal bits can't be found, so they can charge you a fortune for the precut stuff.

Hi Craig
I'm planning of doing something simulator for my VRX spoiler I've have been talking to peter from CAD In Brisbane and he will be making up a carbon fiber rear VRX spoiler kit for me. With the VRX badge cut out on the side of my spoiler. If you would like the design of the VRX logo it's same as the genuine badge send me a email and I'll attach the badge to you.

Thanks I've sent off that email.

I have a couple of DIY options,
- Use paper to make a template and trim it until I get it right.
- use some of that wrap cutting tape you lay under the wrap and then pull to get the lines you want.
- Or just lay it an trim as I go trying to avoid marking the spoiler.

Why put it there in the first place. The edges will disrupt the airflow anyway, negligible no doubt!!
Appearance wise I like it the way it is. To each their own!!!

I used plasti-dip just one a year ago and they still look great. Not got a new photo but this is what they looked like them painted.
