NOT JUST THE BEST TRUNK LID EVER, BUT THE BEST AERO PART EVER
The MadPSI carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid is not just the best trunk lid ever made for the MR2, it is perhaps the best aero part ever made for the MR2, period. It looks good in photos, but it is at another level in person. And, in person, it looks better each time you see it. Every time you see it, you will notice a different subtle detail. It looks stunning, amazing, [insert superlative here]. It is such a sophisticated, intricate, interesting, and modern design. It really matches and ties the entire car together well and lends it a more mature look. It is just so…sexy. And after seeing it, it will instantly make other MR2s look boring, bland, outdated, and wanting in comparison.
ONE-PIECE BOLT-ON TRUNK LID REPLACEMENT
The MadPSI carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid is a one-piece bolt-on trunk lid and rear spoiler replacement. There is no need for you to invest time and money into taping, riveting, or molding anything. You can simply swap your OEM trunk lid and rear spoiler with the MadPSI carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid and you are done.
68% LIGHTER THAN STOCK
The MadPSI carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid weighs only 9.4 lbs., which is about 68% lighter than the 29.6 lbs 1991 to 1993 MR2 trunk lid and spoiler. The MadPSI carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid is so much lighter than OEM that you may need to recalibrate your trunk lid spring.
MORE OEM THAN OEM
The first thing you will notice when installing the MadPSI carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid on your MR2 is how it looks more OEM than the OEM setup it replaced. Messy 3-piece (1994 to 1997) and 4-piece (1991 to 1993 and 1998) OEM setups are now replaced with a much cleaner one-piece Ducktail Trunk Lid. It is much more simple, subtle, coherent, and its design complements the MR2s shape much better. It is the design the MR2 should have had from the factory. That is not by accident. That is by design. We went through countless iterations to make sure the MadPSI carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid looked “right” at every angle.
ONCE YOU GO QUACK, YOU WILL NEVER GO BACK
We are used to seeing MR2s with rear spoilers, because, until now, that is all that has been available. But after putting the MadPSI carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid on your MR2 and becoming familiar with it over a week or so, all of sudden what has been normal for more than two decades will, surprisingly, seem so strange. Rear spoilers will start to seem like an inelegant solution, a “boyracer” immature look, a design relic from the previous century.
The MadPSI carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid was designed to utilize the OEM trunk lid latch, hinges, bolts, and rubber stoppers.
We specifically designed the MadPSI carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid so that the gaps between the rear quarter panels, engine lid, engine lid side pieces, and MadPSI carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid were as close to stock as possible. Next time you open you trunk lid with your engine lid closed, pay attention to how close the trunk lid gets to the engine lid. Maintaining OEM gaps on the trunk lid is crucial. Additionally, the MadPSI carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk lid is perfectly symmetrical with the left and right quarter panel gaps being exactly the same as measured by a digital caliper down to a hundredth of a millimeter.
SMOOTH GLOSSY FINISH
Many composite trunk lids are not smooth. When you look at them at an angle, you see waviness and bumps. When you run your hand across the surface, you feel a rough texture. When you look closely, you may even see small pinholes. To ensure the MadPSI carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid has an amazing finish, we implemented special techniques, protected by trade secret, throughout the product development and manufacturing process. Was it more expensive? Yes. Was it worth it? Absolutely. The finish is as smooth as glass. When you run your hand across the surface, it glides effortlessly. Combined with our highest-grade glossy clear coat, it has a stunning mirror-like finish.
STRAIGHT WEAVE PATTERN
Many composite trunk lids have distorted weave patterns, especially on complex surfaces. The weave pattern looks like an absolute mess when there is a concave shape, drop, or curve. Some manufacturers even paint over sections of products to hide areas where weave distortion is obvious. To ensure the MadPSI carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid has a straight weave pattern, we use the best manufacturing facility with the best production team. These highly skilled workers are true artisans with over 15 year of experience. Is doing this more expensive? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely. The result is a beautiful straight weave unmatched in the industry. We take great pride in our straight weave pattern and instead of painting over it, we proudly display it like artwork in high-resolution close-up photographs.
CONSISTENT WEAVE PATTERN
Many manufacturers use excess leftover carbon sheets from other parts in order to save money on material costs. The result is a visible line where one carbon sheet ends and another starts and a visible misalignment of the weave pattern where the different carbon sheets meet. To ensure our carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid has the most consistent weave pattern, we construct every carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid using a one-piece carbon sheet. We dispose of any excess material. Is doing this more expensive? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely. The result is a consistent weave pattern throughout the entire carbon fiber Ducktail Trunk Lid with no visible cuts or disjointed lines.
HIGHEST GRADE CARBON FIBER
MadPSI uses only the highest-grade carbon fiber raw material in all its products. We use the same materials used in aviation, battleships, satellites, and rockets.
