will the amg front chin spoiler fit a gen 1 500sec EURO

i know mr sec crazy has a recent thread with his front chin spoiler that has dog ears as did the white magic car

but looking at the gen 1 vs 2 euro bumps the only difference i c in them is one ridge on the gen 1 but woulld it be inthe way of this spoiler fitting

You will run into a couple of issues with the spoiler pictured on a Gen I SEC Euro bumper. The spoiler pictured is a Gen II AMG sedan spoiler.

First, the shape of a Gen II Euro bumper is different than that of a Gen I. There's a thread showing the difference in profile (front and side views) and size. The Gen I bumpers are just smaller and more "tucked in".

Second, a sedan Gen II AMG spoiler will only partly fit a Gen II Euro SEC bumper. The bottom portion will fit fine, but the problem will be with the gaps on the sides going up towards the so-called "dog ears". If you were trying to make it look "right", you would have to use body-filler in this case.

Gen II AMG spoilers were made as C126 and W126 specific.

Repro's abound on Ebay. This is the Duraflex version, which isn't the greatest quality, but is available.

^^^ Anybody who slaps their branding logo on a Internet car photo which has been known by us in the public domain for a long time doesn't exactly instill confidence in their business integrity.
