Default C5 Duraflex Rear Spoiler

Has anyone installed the Duraflex rear spoiler on their C5? The pic on their site is not very good. Wondering if anyone has some good close-up shots installed.

I'm surprized no has one of these installed. The look is very similar to the GM piece offered on '10 & '11 models.

I believe you are referring to the ZR1 style Carbon Fiber rear spoiler. If so check out this thread, http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c5-g...ng-for-c5.html. It will answer your question.

Thanks! That's the one ....or at least very similar. A company named Duraflex makes one that can be painted. They might make the carbon fiber version too.

If anyone has pics of the painted version, please share.

Check this site. http://www.corvettespoilers.com/
They show a painted version but the pic sucks. I requested more info but have received nothing. If anyone has pics of one painted red on their coupe, I'd sure like to see....

I've never been a big spoiler fan.

Not for me but I've seen many that look pretty good.

I am not a fan of the ZR1 style spoiler, because it does not flow with the C5 rear deck, after all it is designed for a C6. Here is my low profile spoiler I ordered from RPI Design (forum vendor). It comes painter to match all the stock colors.

This one looks much better IMO. Probably cost less too.

Yikes! That is a cool look! Can you send more pics to djmssp@mchsi.com??? Also, do I detect a splitter on the front? Any pics of that?
