HA - not gonna happen!

What can you tell me about the construction and attachment of the vertical spoilers? Is it in a hopefully permanent version, or will there be a 2.0?
Since I'm only keeping this car for the winter, there won't be a version 2.0. Construction: it's just coroplast, duct taped on.

Also interested to see the trunk spoiler come out of beta testing, I've considered chopping my (currently removed) spoiler down to the width of the trunk lid, but still in fear of mutilating it enough that a handmade spoiler would look better
I'm just going to replicate it in coro and tape it on. But that style of spoiler would be pretty easy to make with rigid insulation foam board -- I'd put in the time to do that if I were keeping the car.
