I know quite a few have molded in the front spoiler.......

I strongly advise against it.make it fit correctly and easily removeable.

If not, IF the van should ever need to be towed.The roll back operator will REMOVE it for you.It will not be pretty...

Got the first coat of fiberglass on the spoiler (fixing where it was broke) and molding it to the bumper (bumper is already molded to the van). Hope to have the next coat of glass on this week so I can start filling and smoothing!!! Going to start molding in the flares this week as well.

yeah First of killer job on the air dam!!!!!!!!!!

Second I was told the samething by the shop that has my van. If for show and mild use they said molding was OK, but for a daily, the chances of getting damage was higher and to repair a molded in set was a lot harder to fix and paint than a nicely lined up and bolted set.

We might also put color fender welt(like what was used on the 30's and 40's cars) between the flares and body. It had black when I bought the van. It looked good!!
