    Weekend Spoiler Project - molded Sequence Devil replica

    I was going to spam up the "what did you do/get for your Veloster" thread, but figured this mini-project could use it's own space.

    I got it in my head I wanted a new spoiler , but frankly had a hard time finding any available styles that I really liked. The Sequence devil spoiler is an oldie, but one of the few that I like from *most* angles. Problem is, I didn't want to put holes the OEM spoiler on my Rally, risk tape, or otherwise make it more difficult to go back to stock. I needed both a Sequence spoiler, and a sacrificial OEM spoiler. So it was hunting time..

    Special thanks to matemorh, who actually had Sequence "replica" and OEM spoiler lying around after cancelling his plans to do something similar. The replica part worked find for me -- saved having to fill in the dumb backward logo. He took the time to package them up for me. They arrived just in time for a weekend when I had an open schedule to get started.

    Apparently this orange spoiler has changed hands before, and once belonged to the famous Gaijiin. I should feel privileged to have a celebrity souvenir.

    Before I got ahead of myself, I wanted to make sure I would have no problems pulling the stock spoiler and swapping the third brake light. Off to a wonderful start, I got the spoiler off cleanly -- but dropped a nut in behind the trim piece on the right side. F**k... deal with that later. Ran a line of duct tape over the holes in case I had to go somewhere. The Veloster actually looks pretty slick spoilerless.

    Random fun fact. This little trim piece is stuck on with two-sided tape. A little heat might help with removal, or you can be a loser and come within a hair of snapping it, like I did. I recommend the former.

    I don't think I've actually seen a picture of how the brake light is held in. Here you go. Your rear window cleaner nozzle is tucked behind, and comes out with a couple tiny screws.

    Mission accomplished. I find it interesting that this upper brake light is apparently no longer available as a spare part for the Turbo model. They want you replace (and paint) the complete spoiler instead. I get that LED lamps seldom fail, but that is just the worst kind of retarded.

    Anyways, now confident I can switch everything over, I direct my attention to the new spoilers. The "correct" way of installing these is to screw the spoilers together, maybe with some 3M tape for backup. I didn't do it the correct way.

    I mixed up an extra large batch of classic JB-weld, lined them up, and... realized there weren't any good surfaces to seat my clamps, and a half-assed application of literary pressure wasn't going to cut it.

    Plan B: A quick trip to borrow ratchet straps. Some dicey positioning of hooks (that really should be over some padding). Finally satisfied, I leave them to cure overnight. Some might point out I was foolish not to strip the paint off the OEM spoiler, but I was reasonably confident in adhesion of the existing paint and just roughed both sides up first.

    Later the next morning, I was happy to find them stuck together. I might have left it at that, but I'm not completely crazy. I didn't have the specs for the screws that were supposed to come with spoiler, and one of the holes was slightly damaged, so I put the next phase of my diabolical plan in motion. I drilled out the holes to a much larger size.

    I found some screws and washers that would fit through the holes, and drilled starter holes in the spoiler below. I taped these screws onto my driver, and fastened the spoilers together from the bottom.

    I wanted to keep a bit of a "sill" around the holes, so they would take body filler. I used Bondo Glass, because I'm easily manipulated by marketing. It sounded strong, and I wanted strong filler that for what I would do next.

    I'm not exactly a great bodywork guy. Far from it. But I figured if I had a sacrificial spoiler, why not mold it into the aftermarket one and make it... less of an afterthought? It was a pain in the ass, but I gave it a shot.

    Test fitting to make sure I hadn't screwed up the transition around the brake light.

    Filled, glazed, sanded, and ready for some black "try to cover up my mistakes" primer.

    A few coats of satin black, and -- my single best decision of this project -- some MATTE clearcoat. I used a Duplicolor matte clear intended for wheels. It made the whole thing go from "Wow, those are some painfully obvious flaws" to "that's actually pretty acceptable". I was planning to go for a satin or matte look anyways, since it tied in with the rally wheels and paint.

    Make sure I can still get that brake light in with a few extra layers of paint, and snake the cables and washer hose through again.

    I'll spare you pictures of my crash course in removing the passenger side trim piece, breaking two clips, making the nut fly across the room, hunting for it, finding it, and laying on some Automotive Goop to hold the now looser section of trim.

    I'm not certain where it came from originally, but I suspect it might be made by Duraflex. If matemorh see this he might be able to confirm. Whether or not they manufactured it, I'm still impressed by the quality. It didn't seem at anything like a flimsy knock-off.

    I forgot to mention, if anyone wants a quick visual on removing the stock spoiler, I suggest this video (not mine, but thanks to the owner with their good taste in Veloster models):

    Nice to see the result of some real paint and body skills. I wanted the edges of the old spoiler to completely disappear, but I can see how leaving a slight lip helps with the sight lines.
