    NAVY BLUE METALLIC
    1999 FORMULA M6 HARD TOP

    Last week I picked up a red 97 trans am hatch for $150. I like the high rise wing and I wanted to make my formula a little different. I just dropped the hatch at the paint shop so they can paint it NBM. At this point, it just hit me, would a 97 hatch fit a 98-02. I guess I will find out when I get it back next Tuesday. I will post some pictures. When I do let me know what you think.
    Thanks

    Definitely will fit, from the doors back nothing changed on the are from 93 to 02, except for the styling of the tail lights. Also definitely the best cosmetic upgrade I would do if I owned a firebird. I do not like the deck lid on those. Wanna be different remove the whole spoiler period LOL. J/K I had mine off for a few days getting it painted...it looks so weird!

    Thanks man, the high rise wing will make it look a lot better without being rice. I also heard that the higher wing actually creates down force above 40MPH giving you more traction and stability at higher speeds. True or not it doesn't matter, it still looks cooler.

    I heard only the mecham wings give downforce, but you can add that now, it would be a good time as you're in the process of adding the rear hatch.

    The mechan wing looks pretty cool but it seems that it has to be installed professionally in order to make it look smooth. Money is a little tight. Compare to $150 for the TA hatch and $100 to get it painted and instalation is a breeze (do it myself). If I had the money I would do the Mecham wing. I have not seen any firebirds/TA's with that wing.

    The spoiler itself bolts right up whether its the stock or mecham...At least I believe the Mecham would bolt right in place. It definatley is a nice addition. Always consider it but never nothing serious...Might have to look into that a little more lol

    I dont know...I just looked at it again and I don't know if a feel that great about the Mecham wing its almost a little too over sized for the car. I mean I would probably have to see it in person to make a final decision on it.

    I didn't suggest it for looks, I suggested it for functionality, it actually produces downforce.

    Have neglected her for the past few weeks, so gave her a quick wash and wax this morning. I think my camera's crapping out on me, I can't get a crisp picture all of a sudden.
