So you just can't do it? Granted you still want your hatch to be able to open?

I guess I won't do this if my trunk won't open.

definatly not a bolt on thats for sure, it would look compeitly akward unless you reshaped the whole thing extensivly.

you could just cut it in half and fiberglass it back togetther :smokes: i think it would look good with st205 sides and a lip in the front on a rc bumper :smokes:

There is a Castrol Decal'd 185 on this thread with a ST205 spoiler. Would he have cut the center out and fibreglassed together?

Can you please grab the measurements of your ST205's spoiler for me so I know how much work I am looking at? I mostly just want the height with spacers, and the width between where it mounts to the trunk.

Well this makes things a lot harder, but never say never with our car. Crazier things have been done.

Saw this on GT4OC as well.

Looks pretty good, I think. Maybe 1-2" too tall. If you need to modify it for the st185, I'd probably get that much chopped off. I wonder if the trunk opens.

Personally, the thing I'm more worried about is the lines of this spoiler from behind. I think it might look a bit dumb now in hindsight, but more pictures will be needed.

Do you know who on GT4OC has this car?

Not sure the owner. I was just making my quick quarterly browse over there and ran across it.

I will still be doing this but im going to have a custom raiser blocks made to fit the st185. I have a budy that will soon be making body parts for the st185's off of mine. If you guys would be interested in something like that he could make a mold and start selling those...

Hey Josh :)

Any chance of you PS'ing my idea of an Eclipse GST spoiler on a 185 for me?

I have been curious about it for ages now and would love to see it.

Thanks in advance,

It might look ok with decent wheels and a body kit, but it does not really help the lines of the 185. Especially from the rear. I think the TRD y2k celica spoiler is one of the few I like.

Slightly to big for the 185.. Needs raiser blocks that are a bit lower and molded for the 185s lines. Its an option but not as is. 205 side skirts would be nice as well
