    We used to fake them using rubber fender flare kits from Pacer Products. They actually worked better on street vehicles. Because they bent as opposed to breaking like the fiberglass spoilers.

    Is there a company that makes it?

    The rubber fender flares are made by Pacer Products. You can find it on Amazon, most of the online parts houses, or I think Pacer has an online store.

    You might also check out this guy on YouTube,

    He has an Accty that he did some really good work on. Plus he does stuff on other vehicles so there are quite a few good vids you can learn quite a bit from.

    A lot of companies make spoilers, skirt kits, and other dress up kits for the minitrucks in Japan. The problem is there is not enough of a market in the US to drive the importation.

    Perhaps Shogun, or one of the others in Japan can help you source things from there. You can see the body kits, etc. on the Japanese auction sites, but trying figure out which kits include what and fit your rig, is a bit beyond most folks in the US scope.

    Yeah I figured that might be the case. Ill get the guy I bought the truck from to check on finding one the next time he goes to Japan. Thanks for the info.

    I just checked the FB thread and he said it's a MK1 Golf Front Spoiler! Only 40 bucks on Ebay...it's going in my cart! Link below.

    That looks very nice, good job.

    There are a number of companies here in Japan offering 'aero parts' for kei trucks, but availability varies by make, model and age.
