I was travelling along my private test track last night testing if I had de-limited the car via Andy's method which worked but suddenly a big bang and half of my rear spoiler has dissapeard, luckily I managed to slow down to see the half I had lost slide on to the hard shoulder so no danger to other road users.

I have unscrewed the fin part as shown here but how can I repair the damage/missing panel?

I'm pretty handy but have no experience with body panels, it is the underneath part that is missing so finish doesn't have to be perfect can any advise me the best method of sorting this.

Don't want to bin the spoiler as it's worth £200ish and I'm going on the Furball this Friday.

Many thanks in advance

Stewart

Just the wing is broken the rest is in perfect condition, so just the wing, not sure if this is genuine or not?

Will it fit?

I would rather fix this one if I can but I may well take you up on your offer, what do you want for it?

What an offer! I am about all day tomorrow.

Let me know what sort of time, to say I'm happy is an understatement, I had visions of me going on the furball minus spoiler, you have saved me big time.

Cheers

Big thanks to Keith, sorted me out with a perfect fitting spoiler just in time for the Furball ( www.furball5000.co.uk ) what a great community we have, asked for a spoiler/help at half ten last night and by 1 this afternoon I had one :)

Tigger: It probably wasn't the safest of spots but my car is VERY disabled when left + as it was known as a problem spot the old bill have it down as part of their round so see them crusing the car park all the time, even at night as they were parked up there at 2.30am last night in an undercover car. Oh and your right that chinese is the best around, spend far too much in there :D
