Install was pretty forward and relatively easy. It took about 45min. <br>Instead of trying to slide the panel on I secured the 6 new mounting pins to the panel and just popped the top 4 pins in place then I did the same to the bottom 2.<br>All the mounting holes for the license plate, lights and trunk release are spot on. The Key release cover however is a little to small and I will have to shave a hair off it to make the cover fit. Other then that, there was no modifying it to fit right or anything like that. The entire panel came ready to sand, paint then install. <p><br><IMG SRC="http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p95/madmattferris/Volvo/IMG_1582.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p95/madmattferris/Volvo/IMG_1576.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p95/madmattferris/Volvo/IMG_1579.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p95/madmattferris/Volvo/IMG_1580.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p95/madmattferris/Volvo/IMG_1589.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p95/madmattferris/Volvo/IMG_1578.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p95/madmattferris/Volvo/IMG_1590.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>If anybody wants to see any other angels of the panel shoot me a PM and I'll do my best to accommodate you.<p>I will have limited access to SS tomorrow so if you have any questions, bear with me until I have a moment to answer. <p>Many thanks to Henry for getting this to me in a hurry. Great customer service and was in contact with me the entire time from initially talking about the purchase till today. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Installed: PCC trunk panel by Carbon Fiber Works (xman03)

i like it over the stock trunk though... it has a more aggressive flow... but i bet it makes that cloud of air behind the trunk more pronounced.

Re: (Token)

I like the spoiler, but I don't like how the top is so curvy. I guess its okayy.

Re: Installed: PCC trunk panel by Carbon Fiber Works (mad matt)

Any driving impressions? Does it feel more planted at higher speeds?

Re: Installed: PCC trunk panel by Carbon Fiber Works (Sjappi)

I thought I would like this spoiler, but in the end, I dont. The curve is way too pronounced. Kinda kills the look of the 60 from behind, for me, for some reason. I can't put my finger on it. Don't get me wrong, yours looks very good, I'm not bashing your choice or your car, looks great <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Just rambling out loud about the spoiler itself.

I was seizing on how much Ti Grey was back there too. From the side I like it, and from the rear-view mirror angle too, it's the straight on sight-line from the rear that is throwing me off. I will reserve my ultimate, personal judgment until I see it with the emblems <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
