Thats my car on Randys website. I like the spoiler as it is, I know it might look a little meaner if it was dropped down lower, but I'm worried about dragging it entering driveways etc. even as it is. I'd say it definatly helps the high speed manners as well as looking cool.

 2thumbs looks good. No need to go any lower, as you say, it will only create problems.

I ordered a 68 today...I think they are in fact longer, although they never give dimensions on the sites I was on...I saw (2) 68 camaros and (1) 69 at the Hooter's show this Sunday and the 68s were noticeably longer...

Fear not, I didn't look long enough to turn to stone, just to capture the image, haha.

My thoughts are I will get it in, see how it looks, and then go from there.  Classic has a 20% off sale right now so it wasn't too big of a hit.  If I don't like it, I'll try Randy's, if I like it and it scrapes, I'll consider the 69, if I like it as is and break it, I can get a new one...the price is cheap enough.  I think they give a nice look to the front of the car.

That one does look good on your Charger purple68!

You know, they all look pretty good and they do the job. In the end it just comes down to personal preference.

I like how the Camaro spoiler lines up with the indicators.  Looks clean and sharp.  They help as described but I have to guess that they cost a little in MPG too.  (Not that it matters much.)  Here's mine w/ a 69 one.

Thanks Doc.
As for the other, I know where you're coming from. I get jittery if I can't drive mine at least once a week.

Mine will be here tomorrow, I bet you can get by without it...I just got it so I'd have the reinforcement brackets and would see if they line-up...if not I'll modify.  I think you can mount it just fine without the kit, these weren't intended for Chargers anyway.

I don't know if I'll put mine on yet, I wanted the valance straightened and I've been waiting for a "good" batch of XV lower rad braces before pulling the valance panel (oh and I can install those 12 year old "new" parking light lenses when this all happens, lol).

I'll unbox it (assuming I get it) and try sometime this weekend to see how things line up....I'll post back what  I find out.  More than likely you'll have your spoiler mounted by then, but I suppose it might help someone.

My mounting kit came with the spoiler so I did use it but I also had to modify the brackets (cut and reweld) to make them fit.
Otherwise you can always make up your own brackets.

I've had mine on for a while and I'd say to keep it black. Painting it would make it "Euro" and the next thing you will want to do is paint the grill and bumpers matching colors.

Just say Nine.

Many of these pictures are taken with the front end in the shade. Didn't you guys take Photography in school? Look at any car magazine for tips on how to take a picture.   L I G H T is your friend.

But if you paint it you will have issues with stone chips being noticable and you will be painting it all the time. Just food for thought.

Agreed.
            Although I never took any such silly classes.  Seriously guys, you can't see the spoilers if you take pic's in the shade...USE SOME SUN OR GET SOME LIGHT. slap

Anyone else interested in putting one of these on your car?
I'm ready. I doubt that they would reduce fuel economy, but possibly improve it. Anything that you can do to direct air around the car rather than underneath it should help. This spoiler also should help improve cooling, since it will direct some of the oncoming air up and through the grille.

I bought one yesterday. $37 with tax.
It looks like it matches the contours of the valance pretty well. Since my car is a 70, I will have to cut the outer edges a little to fit around the bulges for the turn signal/parking lamps.
