Could be due to the cold weather. Perhaps some are waiting till next season to install. Or maybe people are painting or refinishing.

Mine's painted and prepped, just need to find some time to re-mock-up, tape, prep the 3M mounting product, and prep both mounting surfaces for install. Probably will do it this weekend, and if weather permits, drive up to Angeles Crest for some outdoor shots.

Sometimes you forget how SMALL this car is. This is a shot with me just standing at normal height and ~28mm focal length on my DX sized sensor (which makes it about a 42mm focal length equivalent? Roughly what the human eye sees).

A few things, for those of you who haven't started installing.

You get ONE SHOT at the install. These 3M tape ain't coming off easily. You screw up, you're in it for 2 hours of cleaning. So measure, measure, and MEASURE again. I ended up with a bunch of blue painters tape on the car, with one defining the centerline using laser levels and the hatch roundel as the guide. As it turns out, the car is ever so slightly higher on one side, and the end result is by the time I'm measuring the centerline on the top of the hatch I'm off by about 1/8". When I laid down the spoiler with just 1/8" off center, I noticed that one side rose up much higher than the other. Took me about half dozen dry fits to find the perfect alignment.

You can butt the spoiler right up on the hatch, and there's definitely a small window where the corner, the back, and everything just sort of falls in line and it lays nearly perfectly flat. What worked for me was finding that perfect centerline of the hatch, using the two screw holes as guide and finding the centerline of the spoiler, getting both to line up, taping down the spoiler with painter's tape, then mark the two corners of the spoiler with painter's tape for perfect alignment. Then lay down the 3M double sided tape (with the adehsion promoter) on the spoiler. I took JonM's tip and added additional tape on the tips side (doubled up rows of tape, about 5 rows), and I double row'ed the leading edge of the spoiler just in case with tape.

YOU GET ONE SHOT AT THIS. Once you lay this down it's not coming off easily. Or ever, since I also put adhesion promoters on the hatch side. As soon as I lay it down, I knew it wasn't coming off. And I was glad that I went over, measure and measured and measured again. I laid the tip of my index finger on the corner of the spoiler, then aligned my finger tip with where I marked the edge with painter's tape, then slowly rotated the spoiler down without moving the tip of my index finger. It was a huge sigh of relief when the spoiler touched down on the hatch and it lined up perfectly all around. Zero margin. The bottom of the spoiler look like it just blends right into the hatch with no room to spare.

The end result speaks for itself. I'm about 85% convinced that I went the right route with painting the spoiler. It looks like it should have come from the factory like this.

For sure, I never did think that photos did this car justice. It's just one of those things that need to be seen in person.

I did my roadster one 3 times. Then I gave up my pride and asked for extra pair of hands. It line up way easier after I taped and drew lines at 7 different spots on the trunk with the other guy's help. Perfect alignment and installed in seconds.

Good job with the spoiler, nice to see another Interlagos Z in great condition.
That diffusor though.. hurts my eyes. The least matching diff for this car IMO

The lighting and texture (it's the only matte finish) throws it off in pictures. And yes it is the least "integrated" of all the pieces on the car and required the most modifications to fit.

It does look quite nice in person, you'll have to trust me on that. And I MIGHT grind off another 1/4" off the diffuser fins on the outside since that is the one that tend to scrape. But for now, I'm content.

I got my spoiler today even though it had been delivered sometime last week. Way too much time in airplanes for me lately.

My initial impressions are the carbon pattern is perfect and beautiful. It is astonishingly light. The finish on the backside of mine looks hazy in three spots like the clear had some issues. One of them is quite big, about 3 inches in diameter. Maybe it'll buff out as they say. I have all winter to try.

The fitment as I place it on the car seems extremely good but it made me think of Hack's cautions. The edge has this small bevel which fits wonderfully around the top lip of the trunk and I can really see what he meant by "make sure you get it right the first time you set it down"

It gets dark here so early that I was forced to get some street light shots in a local parking lot. They are not the best but here they are anyway.

Stunning car. Never was a big fan of the black Z, i always thought the black would swallow too much of the lines. But yours looks amazing and very balanced overall. Love the massive brakes on it too with the subtle red

Thanks Eleanor. I know what you mean about the black, I was originally hunting for a white coupe when I was looking, but this one had numerous upgrades (the brakes being a big one) that I couldn't pass up. The black has grown on me as well and while I usually wouldn't go for such big wheels, the big brakes necessitate them. The amazing cornering is a nice side benefit.
