XE Falcon Spac stripes/decals and front lip spoiler

Recommended Posts

GDay, does anyone know where I can get XE Falcon Spac stripes/decals and front lip spoiler ? I thought I read somewhere that the spoilers were being made in fibreglass but haven't been able to locate any for sale ?

cheers

there was someone who planned to make the S-pak/Ghia/ESP front bumper lip but never eventuated,

I had Alfa fiberglass reply to a comment I made about making a fiberglass lip along the lines of,

It would be hard to make a mold for a S-Pak lip with the shape of them & how they flex

the s pack stripes from graffix do not fit properly,you will need to cut and shut where nessercary,mainly around the rear dog leg wheel arch,i spoke to him about a year ago to fix this,i have done 2 s packs with the sticker kit and are good quality ,and well worth it.

 I wonder if it could be made from plastic, via 3d printer, even if in sections...will go make some enquiries

I thought for making a mould, if you had bumper & lip on bolted up to a car, & fill the rear of the lip with filler it would be firmer, & could then could start making a mould of the front of the lip easy enough, but the rear mounting surface would take abit of working out.

hmmm, the mounting I see has a few possibilities

 perhaps the 3d printed or (more) solid fibreglass one could have male studs moulded in, and  then use nuts from above, or have inserted threaded holes and use bolts from above

I'm thinking it could be moulded in 3 or 4 parts, should be easier to pop from the mold and  that way if it got damaged you wouldn't have to replace the whole thing,

purchasers could then join and smooth out if the totally original look was desired

check post #4 one of the members here used it on an XD bumper for a while(until the elusive XD S pack one turned up) 
http://forum.jdmstyletuning.com/showthread.php?41507-Rubber-Front-Lip-DIY-(under-80)

 

the previous owner of my car used 4wd rubber guard flare from clark rubber & self tappet screws to make a lip... mine turned out alright too... its been on for a while hasn't deteriorated with UV rays etc... it wouldn't be as effective as the one you have done but looks the goods IMO...

how it looks...

yeah the old bumper lower section is an old trick, &  if I come across a bumper before the original  I will probably do the same

 

I did buy off ebay some front lip rubber for another car which could also work, might test it out on the weekend

wow the stuff at clark rubber isn't cheap $19+ per metre !....

nothing's cheap these days

 

when i first bought a genuine lip 25yrs ago for My XE S pack, i paid $50(the original was mangled )

the last 2 i sold about 15 years ago off wrecks went for $150 in a snap. 
haven't seen one under $200 for a while lately, and i'd expect that's cheap, because ESP's are now worth triple what they were then, and every ESP guy is a hoarder probably snapping them up and storing forever

You call it hoarding, I call it, having spares of parts that you can’t get anymore.

yeah, there's no harm in having spares ! especially of stuff that hasn't been remade,

 

im expecting to have to pay north of $250 for  a lip that needs work, which is OK, as I will make it back if I can get them remade,

 

my car is not an esp or even a spak so I don't plan on spending heaps for "the look", and not in any hurry, got heaps to do like  finish the rust repairs, get club rego and then do the barra swap, hopefully a lip will present itself in the next few months

Its funny, when I see people here and on FB asking for parts like these, my first thought is, “ha, didn’t realise they were that hard to come by, I’ve got half a dozen sitting in the shed”, but things like lip spoilers, I got when you could get them for $10, now, I just feel glad I’m not trying to build a car now days.
