    I just got my Ver.A Front Spoiler from Sigma today and the instructions are in Japanese. The pictures are very detailed and I think I could do the job from just the pictures but I would like to have the Instructions translated to English if possible. I will need the instructions translated by July 3rd because thats when i'm going to be doing the installation. I cant really offer any money for your time but I would give you full credit for the translation. If you live in the USA I could send you a Hybrid Synergy Drive keychain for free if you like. Or maybe we can work something out as payment? Maybe even a little money if it comes to that. I will need everything in the instructions translated except for of course the numbers. I can read those. Well some of them. I cant count past 5. :( :lol:

    Here is a link to the Japanese instructions.

    As usual when I ask for help I always find a way to do it or fix it myself. :rolleyes:

    I think I found a way to translate it myself using Kanji OCR and Babel Fish.

    I might still need some help translating so if you can help me please let me know.

    If I get the document fully translated I will post the results for others to use.

    Could you tell me where at the Sigma site the spoiler is, all I could find was the flex spoiler and it doesn't look like the one in your pdf instructions. I think I might want to buy one also.

    Sorry no Japanese, I can't even remember how to order a beer.

    Its actually the very first product listed on the site. Don't know how you could miss it. Row one column one not counting the column on the very left. Sigma

    the force,

    I did the same thing for a translation into spanish and into chinese using a combination of babel fish and something else (I thought it was just babel fish but when I went back to the website just now I didn't recognize it at all, hmmm). I had it checked by my sons spanish teacher and she made about 10 changes in a 200 work document, but most seemed to be endings, and one turn around of a phrase using the same words.

    The chinese was checked by a mandarin teacher that uses our church and she said, "Looks good to me!" LOL

    OK so I tried to translate it my self and here is the result.

    http://stuff.jaygroh.com/prius/frontspoilereng.pdf

    Most of it translated. The stuff that did not translate was either not translatable or obvious of what it said. I would say %85 of the document does not make sense. 5% is funny :lol: ( but most translations are ) 5% is readable and 5% did not translate. I would still like to have this translated in to something thats a little more readable. I also did this as a rush job and did not make many corrections.

    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(theforce @ Jun 25 2006, 02:23 PM) [snapback]276598[/snapback]</div> Here's a little I can help you with, and I've asked the other. Some of it is just learning the Japanese phonetic alphabet which is about 26 letters in 2 forms, so not that much to learn to sound out words. Probably easier to translate Chinese because Japanese uses too many phonetically spelt borrow words. I spaced the katakana/romanji words so you can see how it translates into English. Set your browser (Firefox) to unicode if the below is garbled:

    Thanks NuShrike that helps. I've been reading through everything the best I could and I understand pretty much everything except page 3. How do I know where to drill the holes? Do I use the marking off pen to do that? If so where and how do I use the pen? Does the pen act as a depth gauge and if so how do I make one? Why do I need to use 3 different drill bits? I'm assuming that it needs 3 bits numbers 3,7, and 9?

    Well I've been studying the pictures and text and i'm just guessing here but I think the other side of the bumper cover will have markings on where to drill the holes. I'm guessing that because there are no indications in the manual on measurements of the marking pen or measurements of the hole locations. If this is true it will make things a lot easier. Another thing i'm not to sure on is I think the manual says to use 3 different drill bits. If I do use 3 different drill bits why do I need 3 when all 8 holes are the same size? And if I need 3 bits what sizes are they? I'm guessing 3, 7, and 9 are metric sizes? Do I use one size as a pilot hole and the other as the final hole? Can anyone confirm any of this?

    I just finished installing it and it took me about 2 hours. It could have been shorter if I had some help. I will post pictures after I wash and put 3 more layers of Zaino on my car. :D

    Wow, hope you feel better. And, looks like you put it on with no problems.. :)

    Anyways, just credit the translation to K.K., and that's good enough. :)

    One of these days, I'll probably try this spoiler out too..

    Well I'm not going to be able to Get pictures today. My parents went to go buy a 2007 Yaris at Fannin Toyota in Ashland KY and I went with them. Its white with the sports package and even has the front spoiler. Now why cant we get that for our Prius? Why do we have to import our stuff and the little Yaris gets all the goodies. :angry: Anyway its a nice car. On a side note there are 2 Prius just sitting there on the lot waiting to be taken home by someone. One black and one red. I don't know what packages they were. If you don't have your prius yet you better hurry on down to Fannin Toyota. :) I just got back home and i'm going to try to wash and put at least one coat of Zaino on. I'll try to take some pics tomorrow. I post some pictures of the Yaris too. :D Oh and I also got my recall notice today. Going to schedule the appointment and get my 5000 mile service.

    Sorry but my sickness really hit me yesterday plus it started to rain. I'm going to try to get pictures thursday or friday depending on how i'm feeling and if weather permits. So far this has been one sucky vacation. :angry: This Installation was easy but I could have used some help reinstalling the bumper cover. There are markings on the back of the bumper cover that show you where to drill so that helped a lot. Everything else was just as the instruction pictures described. I will rework the instructions and post them here as soon as I get to it. I'm posting the few pictures I have. More will come eventually.

    OK I finally got around taking some pictures. I'm still kind of sick but it was a nice day out and I only felt like putting 1 coat of Zaino on. Please ignore the bubbles on the spoiler if you can see them. I just put a clear bra on it and it takes about a month for them to disappear.

    I think the new spoiler looks great and make the car look more sporty.

    A nice close up.
