I ditto Cougar, but before I commit with words I was wondering something.  The picture on Cardomain.com that is named "2123181_67", did you fiberglass the window section as if this will be the piece that will be the spoiler part?  Meaning, were you using the contour of the window to for the spoiler?  If so, I have further comments as well as ideas for finishing, but if not, I ditto CrazyOldCougar for the best of interests.

Well, To tell you the truth I am kinda stuck.The contact section is the exact conture of the window and fits perfectly. Making the underside of the spoiler plug is harder than I thought because It is hard to get it to the perfect shape to make the negitive.I used the foam to do it but there were too many holes and if really does not need to be that thick so I just used bondo. I posted more pics to show what I mean. I not really sure how too use the bottom contact section and build up from there? What do you mean by this? I tried using the spray foam but it just does not seem to come out right.I just want to say thanks for the imput it is helping through something I have never tried before.

Another thing is the larger piece that I use for the negitive I have bondoed it and will be sanding even more than in the picture. I also plan to use this as th top on the spoiler as well. I would love to still hear your ideas though no matter what they are.

Nice work on the spoiler. Did it take you  awhile to get it smooth enough to paint ?

Dam. This was alot more work then it looks,It is still not ready.

 Still needs alot of work / sanding. but I am very very happy with the way it turned out!! I want it to be perfect for when it goes to paint  so it looks like the car came that way.

Looks great, but there is a lot of work involved for something that small. Don't think I would;ve put the effort in, but nice work nonetheless.

Fiberglass worping / distortion. I just built a spoiler and I am worried about it worping under the hot sun. Is there anything I can do?

the sun will not cause your fiberglass to warp...

once it is mounted ther is no chance of it warping...

fiberglass warps mainly during the curing process, where excessive heat created from the endothermic reaction between the MEKP and the resin...also if a piece is not fully cured and is left to rest in a position where the piece is bent there is a chance of it warping...

but like i said once cured and mounted it wont warp..
