"spoiler"/lip molding

A few years back JC Whitney used to offer an extruded piece of rubber molding that was intended to extend the front air dam or lip at the front of the car. The kit I bought came with two beveled end pieces for the ends and it was a cut-to-fit sort of deal. It was a lot like the garden edging idea, but it was intended for the purpose and fairly good looking when it was done. I had it on a Metro.

I've looked for this product again but I can't seem to find it anywhere, has anyone seen this stuff lately?

Yes and no. Not as a kit, but you can buy garage door edging and do the same thing. I have some awaiting install right now. I know a fellow saab owner who did so with aformentioned edging, some double-sided outdoor tape, and screws.

Good idea.
