79 VSE FireAm lower spoiler wheelwell?
« on: May 13, 2018, 04:43:09 PM »
I have been trying to find out what spoilers/flares/splashguard they used at VSE when they build the FireAm. No where I can find on the web can tell me. Found a scanned original product catalog but no specs there either. I am talking about the once that they put on the back of the wheelarces/wheelwells.
Anyone have some info? Personally I love the way it makes the car look wide.

They are normally referred to as "Foilers"...I'm sure you could find a used set for sale with some searching.

Here is a link that lists (part #g4329) a new set however:

Wouldnt that parts number just be the set of four that are already on my WS4? Would like the once that are mounted on the rear of the wheel arches like mudflaps.
Did you point to that parts number because VSE just took a second set of foilers and attached them backwards?

Thank you for your help

"Foilers" ARE the ones that mount behind the wheels.

As mentioned, the brand or name of the aftermarket pieces was Foilers. Used only.

Ok, so now I understand, sorry for being a tad slow. I have found them at fbodywarehouse, the link provided and at classic industries. Anybody know of other places? I live on the other side of the planet from any of those, so shipping and such will make em more than double the price.

Thank you for all the help

As Renovations posted, some do them in fibreglass, either the rear portion 'Foilers' or complete front and rear flares. Generally anyone who does fibreglass or carbon fibre panels for Firebird/Camaro will likely have the most options.
