Wicker bill now for the stock SS spoiler

Allot of customers have asked for and we now have the gurney lip wicker bill for the stock SS spoiler. CF wrap or gloss black.

Are you sure that's what they were asking for? 'cause I'd have been asking for a replacement not an add-on...

That looks very out of place. The whole idea of a wicker bill is to have a large flat surface extending seamlessly from the back of the deck lid for an aggressive, buttoned down look. The exposed stanchions ruin it. I'm not even sure you could technically call it a "bill" in this case so much as an extension of some sort.

This thing looks like a gentle breeze would cause it to snap off. Just seeing how those rivets were popped into such a small surface area makes me cringe a bit, especially the way the washers stick out. With the amount of contact points, I'm sure it's stable, but it just looks very flimsy and cheap overall.

^ This... What are the odds that even one customer, let along multiple, asked for such a non-conventional setup? I can't help but think this is the result of a single person misinterpreting what was asked for and just running with it.

No no no no. You need to cover the exposed parts? It's supposed to run from the top to the deck lid. yikes.

Direct from the pages of "How To Ruin Your NEW Camaro SS"

I know I know "If you don't have anything nice to say" but geesh that looks tacky.

I think the hardware is black and you're just seeing a reflection.

Okay, looks like a lighter colour. If so, disregard my comment.

Not just trying to dish the maker of the product. But I think most camaro SS owners just really dislike the gap between spoiler and deck lid. Never liked the stock spoiler from day one and why I changed to ACS with the Bill Wicker addon.

I am having a hard time with the fact you offered this actually thinking it was good. Like the line goes from Jurrasic Park; "Just because you can doesn't mean you should."

When i first glanced i thought it was mounted on a blade spoiler. Looks totally off on a stock SS wing IMO...
