tailgate spoiler mounting brackets

Post by misha » Mon Jun 20, 2016 5:32 pm

Hi guys!
Recently,i acquired a OEM Volvo tailgate spoiler for my 850 from V70 R.As some of you know,there are two styles of mounting brackets for it.A single type and a two-piece type of mountings.
Since i got a two-piece mounting and the other half is missing i just lightly modified them in order to safely install my spoiler.

Here is the picture of how it looks:

I just cut a little u shape opening in order to bolt it with one of the existing tailgate securing bolts.In this case you will need to use a bit longer bolt with the same thread.The other type of mountings(single-type) use similiar method.
You can bent a lower side of mountings to follow the shape of hinges if you want.

Since the car got a hit at the back about 2 months ago at a parking aside of the road:

I bought tailgate with a 3rd Led stop light and rear bumper from '99 V70 which were painted professionally in a factory Standox polar white:

Also grabbed newer style side marker lights...also from '99 V70:

Bumper,tailgate spoiler and newer style side markers from '99 v70 updated the look of a car a lot.

I wonder if front bumper from V70 would fit without modifications like the rear one did.
I think that it would look absolutelly beautifull with it.....if it would fit.

Should be if the whole assembly is used,not just a cover.
I wonder how it would fit around lover part of the hood,headlights and side lights since they are also different shaped on s,v,c70 cars.

@850 lpt....it came from the factory with Persus wheels.
