Does Anyone Make a Ducktail Add on Spoiler?
 
Just curious if anyone makes just the ducktail add on, without the entire deck lid? I ask because one thing that bugs me about the ducktail lids is the way they stick up higher than the stock decklid line (from the side). I would love to buy another stock decklid and fabricate a ducktail to it to have perfect OEM fitment. Any ideas?

Here is a picture of what I mean by "sticking up higher". Sorry if this is someone's car on the forum. The car is gorgeous, but I wanted to show what I was referring to.

I actually really like the look of the stock decklid on the 964, but having a widebody, I feel the ducktail works really well with it.

The ducktail spoilers i've seen all have terrible fitment- There is one company that you send your decklid to and they actually fabricate the ducktail part onto the original lid itself. I think if you do a search for it you will find it, i'm not sure i remember what it was called.

Thanks guys. I looked up Stratton and it seems to have the exact same aesthetic that I am trying to avoid. Here is a post on a thread that is talking about what I am referring to.

+1

A buddy of mine has one on his forward-dated g-body. A duck look great with wide 964 fenders/bumpers.
I know what you mean about the side profile, that took me by surprise the first time I noticed that detail.

Have you seen the overpriced version of the original Singer style...

Vegas, I have, but it's not the look I am going for. Ideally I would have an exact replica of the newer Singer style (green car above).

I think someone could make a killing if they based a deck lid loosely off of this one. With a more narrow ducktail to keep the lines of the car better.

Search "stratton ducktail" for you want it flush on the sides. He puts the duck, over a stock engine lid.

Mr. Wolfe

Since he makes them to order, perhaps you could specify the look that you want.

Mr. Wolfe

He seems to maintain a couple forum threads that he uses to communicate with people: http://forums.pelicanparts.com/porsc...ail-now-5.html

He seems like a talented fabricator, but his communication style is... interesting.

Well, I found him on Pelican and sent him a PM. I will see what he has to say.

I'm curious what you find out. I'm looking for the same type of duck for my SC. The raised edge of most ducks is not my cup of tea.
