      Post a picture. I believe I know the one you are talking about (see below)

      If its the one I am thinking it is then most folks will cut it in half and then shorten it to the needed width and rivet it back together using the section they cut out to reinforce the back.

      I know for a fact that Ginster86roc has a front spoiler (not sure if its the same one you are talking about) and there are some good pictures up of his installed somewhere on this site. I just found this one ... if you look in the center you see what I recall are rivets

      I found this one.

      Post a pic, I want to do the same but not sure what part it is too wide at, I would imagine you could heat up the part where the Rocco spoiler turns and reshape the vr to follow rhe rocco curve better and trim the ends at the wheels.

      That's not the spoiler I'm talking about. I think that is from a mk3, but i guess its the same principle. I had pics on my laptop but the hard drive quit on me...

      Are you talking about this spoiler?

      The length is perfect once it's heated and wrapped around the sharper corner on the scirocco. I trimmed a little bit at the corner (just the underside) so that it would shape easier. Upon close inspection, you'll see that I didn't exactly take my time to do it.

      yes it the same and it took some patients. I have another set of spoilers so I'm going to redo it at some point.

      Where did you mod it, in the center section to widen it?

      What did you use to bond it?

      I used a mk3 2.0 spoiler as parts... the sides are from the 2.0 spoiler and the middle was widened 4". I used a plastic welder for the plastic and panel bonded some aluminum plates on the back side for mounting (there are no extra holes in the euro front valance). Then used Evercoat, sanded, primed, and then texture paint. It was a lot more work then it looks like, but then the whole car is like that.

      Very nice! I just may need to take your idea and run with it do you find it too low or not too bad? Lastly do you think if I took 2 b3 spoilers I could get something similar done?

      Anyone ever use a seat cupra r spoiler?

      As far as to low... Low is in the eyes of the beholder... And yes if you have two b3 spoilers it should work for you.

      i have seen them, but not installed. im told they are direct fit on mkIV's so i assume they would need some pretty extensive modification to fit/look right on a rocco... that being said, they are pretty sexy
      ...but then again, i do drive a festiva

      Ya but I would guess if it is large enough, then some heat gunning and trimming should work well.
