Hi there does anyone know if this spoiler can be fitted on a barn door style van? and if so could it be fitted further back?

cheers.

The only one we can see and have fitted is the one Blackett suggests.

Have not seen one with the high level brake light as this would then be one sided.

Guys, how are these fitted? Particularly interested in the style of the black one.

After offering up to check position and fit, making sure the doors open clearly.

We used some self tapper type screws and some screnn bonding seal for added security.

Make sure you paint it along the edges that shut together after you have dry fitted for fit as you may ahve to slightly remove some material from the leading edge of the R/H door as this is the last one to close. Just a slight champfer to the back edge is all that is required.

when using the black stuff, you are able to move the spoiler around to get it in the right position, then hold the spolier in place, Try putting a piece of wood under the spoiler to prop it up from the floor so it sets in the right place

tidyts, i like the sound of bonder rather than drilling holes. thanks, i might be in the market for one of these....if my financial adviser allows.

Yea i use the black stuff, bonds plenty well enough and you dont have to screw holes in your van!

when you say it's a pain to fit, why?
