Front bumper + spoiler + oilcooler

I would like to have a nice frontbumper that has front spoiler, under which can be mounted slim oilcooler.


Seems that there is few different style kamei etc spoilers:

These are indeed fugly:

I think they just look better in black.

Brian's looks really good (the Blue 1303) because he matched the color to the bumper so it gives the suggestion of a single unit. The Orange beetle in the pic below Brian's car actually looks like a different design, which I must say is very attractive.

I agree the unit in the bottom 3 links just doesn't look all the good.

I agree, they look the best in matte black.

What about cutting slots in your Kamei.

A 1 piece fiberglass bumper-spoiler would be nice too.

If you have a front apron with grills another option is to use a Kamei cut in half and adopted on the wings and front apron like Remmele has done on this



or use a Golf MKI front spoiler like the one below which can be attached below the apron grills

I love it! I may do that very thing.

Sorry to inform, but my car is 1300 with mendeola suspension, not 1302/1303

So it has no grille and i am using 996 sparetire.

However, i am thinking either front of the mendeola or behind bumper. I will post pictures tomorrow.

This is a factory Kamei that has holes for the airconditioning. Would work fine with an oil cooler. It looks like they punched the holes after they made it.

I can get CNC machined mold from guy who makes aeroplanes, formula racecar bodies etc at quite nice price. So i started designing my own bumper based on beetle 75- bumper. Unfortunately i have better time maybe later at spring, so not yet better pictures:
