Rear Carbon Spoiler Blade question?

I have a carbon fibre rear spoiler blade shown below.







Sorry its not the best pic but all I have to hand.

The carbon has faded on the top of the blade but the bottom is perfect. Looking at it am I able to just flip it so that I can re mount it but with the good side thats currently on the bottom on the top?

Thanks

From the pictures you posted, the blade looks to have a curve. Unless you want it to have the opposit effect that it currently has now, i would suggest you dont flip it.

My suggestion would be to machine polish the blade and see if that gets rid of the fading. It will be just like polishing dull paint.

It actually curves up at the rear and down at the front so if you were to flip it the blade would be exactly the same again or so I think.

I have not taken it off to see how its mounted to know if its possible?

taking it off is easy, its only 2 screws each side, although whether they are mounted to the fore or aft or dead centre will affect the flippiness as well as the profile. Heres an example of the EPR blade...
