where were you planning on getting that big griffin decal

because i looked at the scania website, as in the trucks that saab used to associate with, and they have those big griffin decals but i couldnt get one, but i still would reallly like to get one, and place it right where you have it

The local vinyl shop where i live made it for me. You can order from elkparts but you will have to specify the color and it will cost 63 dollars to get it over here for two decals. Instead i just saved the image to a jpeg file, broght it to him, told him the exact size as they produce it , then he made both side sets for 45 for me. Or you can get one for 25. I only placed one on right now. The gas side i didn't put on yet and I dont know if i want to yet. If you want that one i'll sell it to you for 15 and then shipping. I figure going local i saved 20 bucks and time by doing it this way. The vinyl is 6 year white.

that's a BIG wing - I kind alike the wood dash kits - but I am removing mine outta my 9000 I think - mines old and used and worn. I'd love to get a stainless steel one for my SPG - I like cold steel

So you're the one that got a hold of that last EVO spoiler from Nick...I was just about to order one...

But for some reason on that side shot of your car...It doesn't look right...The spoiler that is...It looks really weird...I've seen one of these spoilers in person and it didn't look that drastic from the side....Weird...

Anyways. I also wanted to put those decals on my car...We'll see what I end up doing...

I wanted a spoiler and after a year and a half of looking for a viggens, like a hundred other people out there, I had to go with the evo.

Maybe take some pics for us of the EVO spoiler from different angles, it might just be that angle...

The decal also helps to cover part of the dents i couldn't pull out after the him and run i had this winter. I bondo'ed some parts, painted and then had it so that the vinyl would cover some of the work.

Did you post pics of the hit and run on here?


Also, how was the install for the spoiler? Easy? Did you have to remove the stock spoiler to fit it? And did you get yours painted? If so, how much?

Yeah i posted pics and there is s thread on here. It was back in Feb i think. The spoiler was an easy install. It took about an hour to get off, attach, and reapply. You have to drill through your old one through. You'll need to get new double sided sticky tape when you reattach.I did have to go to the hardware store to pick up larger screws because the ones that came with it were way to small. I did the painting myself and it came out nice. It comes primered light grey. If my car was not black i would have even attempted doing it myself.

Painted it with spray paint? Small items like that always work. It's the bigger ones that always get screwed up...I think my stock spoiler needs painted so I was going to do them both at once...Well once I get a hold of this EVO spoiler...I've always liked the look...

It was some type of "special" spray paint but i also took my time with it to let it cure and all. All in all i painted and eventually clear coated a shit load of times. I took about a week or so of on and off again painting touches in a warm room. Doing a light coat, waiting two hours, light coat, ect...Worth the time and wait for a large project. I did the same thing with the clear coating. The good thing about the painting is that the only thing that will ever scratch it would be a bug hitting it verses, say rocks hitting a painted grill or something.

Those bugs can be dangerous at speeds of 50+
