CF gurney flaps for Mk3 sedans?
 
I have kept an eye out for a piece for another vehicle that may fit, but I have yet to find something suitable.

What I'd like to see is a small gurney flap for the spoiler on Mk3 sedans, something subtle to run along the rear edge like so:

Poor reference shot, but to give you an idea.

Think this is something you could pull off, given enough interest?

I know mazda 3 hatches have a similar thing, could be a universal application. let me see if i can find it.

not sure if it will be compatible with ours, but it looks really close.

Slightly different style, but that Mazda 3 piece could work.

Honda had a tasteful lip spoiler on the Accord a few years back:

Most sedans can benefit from a tasteful tail treatment.

Sedans can greatly benefit from a subtle trunk lip.

I'm trying to find (or have made) one like the Integra's piece above, which slots onto the wing.

Think you guys could fashion something like this?
