So, did anyone figure out for sure what that initial part number was, that started the thread?
Uniquely 6.9, under the front skirt?
Was one found?
Can we have a pic?

Does anyone have one of these I can borrow to make 3D printed versions from?

My cousin has exhausted his russian search.  Seems the Ukrainian's dont trust anyone outside of their country.....

Maybe one can be made by molding resin into a form?

Mine will be picked up for ocean transport this week, (together with a lot of other stuff) If you can wait 2 months, I can get you exact sizes and photos when it arrives here.

At this point that my best option. I was thinking there could be a rubber mould made to cast a few copies.

or use laser scanning to then make a 3d printed part.

I will surely investigate, once the part arrives here. Even VDH germany has given a blind shout out to anyone holding stock of this spoiler, or anyone capable of doing a reproduction. Guess there's a lot of takers out there, and I should be in the right country to do this most affordably
To be continued.

For sure there will be appetite for this part as it is just at the right height to get crapped out by barriers and such.

Rumb,
I'm still confused! do you mean the plastic lip spoiler?  these were available as of only about 3 years ago when we ordered a few.  you are right, those things are often smashed on the 6.9s due to aberrant curbs and people not waiting for suspension to power up before moving off!
not sure of current sources.

OK, with so many takers, and just 1 hot tip, I am just gonna post it here, and let fate decide..

My container is still 2 months away, but in the meantime I found another seller.
He's a Greek chap in Germany, and the type of guy with the most fragile of ego's. Paranoid, basically.
He's got a bunch of NOS parts at completely delusional pricing. Do not even speak about other parts. Do not complicate the conversation, payment of shipping suggestions in any way, or he will slam the door shut.
Never dealt with anyone that needed that much handling.. I walked, after 2 weeks of emails,  because I already have a "238" and it just wasn't worth the drama for me.
Find a credible way to explain how come you know about his existence. He was on ebay and/or ebay Klein 2 months ago, offering another part.
He's got the xxxx238 in NOS for 140 euros. It's the only good thing there, and he didn't know the real value. Everything else he sells is madness.
You may PM or email me. The first caller gets the email address. No seconds, because if this guy gets 2 mails in a week, he will reach for the Lithium right away. He only speaks Greek and broken German, btw. Good luck with that, haha!

i just took this pic as i was shuffling the cars around at dads.  this is a used one intact and i couldnt find the part number on it. we have a new one lying around somewhere but couldn't find it amongst all the bits!
the plastic spoilers were 6.9 only and as pointed out, usually smashed to bits.


ps dont worry, thats on the bonnet of a parts 6.9, not a beauty!
