    Gen 1 Spyder aftermarket side blade?

    even after a few years I love our spyder just as much as the day we got it, but ive always felt visually it missed a defining mark with not having any of the coupe's side blade. I cant justify in my mind swapping to the new car, but I do like how they integrated a mini side blade into the gen 2. I played with some black vinyl making a faux blade, but it looked bad on my sepang car....ive seen it look good on some other colors though. does anyone make a CF blade aftermarket for a gen 1 spider?

    Thanks!

    Yes, Mansory makes one but it is pretty expensive - over $5,000 + shipping.

    We could make something similar for less if there was sufficient demand.

    German Rush makes the inner R8 Spyder Vents in Carbon Fiber that fit in place of the factory Vents.

    Osman,
    I'd be interested in purchasing a set of these for my Gen1 Spyder. Have you had any other interest to get the project moving? How many sets would you need to get buyers for before starting?
