Boot spoiler & airdam skirt

Only a few days after completing the wing mirrors upgrade, I purchased two Mazda aftermarket parts; a boot lid spoiler and a front air-dam skirt from a supplier in the north of England (which has since gone out of business).

The front air-dam skirt I decided not to wrap, retaining the original black finish, but the boot lid spoiler I wrapped in red vinyl to match the wing mirrors.

It was pretty straight forward after the complex angles on the wing mirrors and the inconvenience of not being able to detach the wing mirror to be able to work on it as easily as I could the spoiler.

Inside the spoiler on the under-side, I glued the edges to help make it durable and protect the edges while it was being fitted to the car. I then protected the edges from water ingress with clear Gorilla tape.

Due to the fact that holes needed to be drilled in the bodywork during the fitting process, I decided to have the spoiler and front skirt fitted by a Mazda dealer.

I think the red spoiler looks amazing against the pearlescent white paint; whilst the front air-dam skirt looks a lot more finished than the basic trim the car was supplied with.
