I also have a ducktail on my current car now
Cheers! Thank so much.

Ahh ok. It's the original bumper support that's being used. Correct, we just removed the two rivets on top and two on bottom. Makes it easier if I were to go back to stock later on.

I just got my duck in the mail from Getty designs. It looks to be in pretty great shape. Unfortunately I need to wait another two weeks before my brake light blank panel arrives so I can have them both painted at the same time.

One part I'm not sure I'm thrilled with are the wire mesh for the top vents. Curious if you guys with Getty ducks used the ones provided or some other form of wire mesh? Did you paint them or go with a stainless look? What did you use to glue them into place after the part was painted?

Finally, can you show me how your fan plug and engine bay light plug are routed?

Thank you

Yes, lots of better looking black meshes out there. Body shops should have different epoxy or fiberglass techniques to keep it in place.

A couple other recommendations.. Make sure your body shop guy fits the 3rd brake light in 1st and fills in any gaps. At least on my fitment there was some minor fill in that was needed to make sure brake light looked great. Also be extra careful with the 3rd brake light tips at each end. They can snap off really easy. One last suggestion. I painted the inside of the ducktail black. That part you see when you look down into the vent openings, even with the mesh in place, if it is not black the unfinished fiber glass is not the nicest thing to look at. Paint it black to match the fan that will be attached and it will look much better.

Those fasteners are a great idea. I might go that route.

Excellent advice, thanks. I will definitely do the black interior paint.

Just installed a Getty Design Sport Ducktail. I paid for the primer service and wiring harness. Did a test fit before sending it off to paint and no adjustments needed since Getty has an actually car they check the fit on. The wiring harness was plug and play an worked without a hitch. I used the wire mesh as is and had them paint the inside silver, Seems to work for now. I bought the upper latch and the proper bolts from the dealership which cost under twenty bucks. They supply the proper rubber bumpers that are adjustable. I’m really happy with Getty’s customer service, shipping and the actual ducktail is first class.

Looking good! I was really happy with the Getty customer service as well. Really impressed with the packaging for shipping too. I'm test fitting mine tomorrow and dropping off for paint Monday. Can you tell me what you paid to have yours painted? Can you shoot a picture of the grilles as well as one that shows the inside painted silver?

Thank you

Is the flying ducktail still available anywhere? Read somewhere they went out of business.

Any body out there with the Moshammer tail? I like the more subtle look and the fact that it doesn’t require replacing the entire deck lid.

thinking of this myself, interested in the reply. Might allow the tail panel of the C4S to remain as well.
