    So I do not have any images of this project. But I purchased a GP replica spoiler from Fubrication.

    Sadly like Lynn I am having to do a lot of work to this item to make it a quality part. I followed the instructions on how to install perfectly. However when I began to put the slightest pressure on the mounting bolts both end plates started to crack! No way I was going to drive for long with the fear that it could fly off.

    I left the spoiler mounted to the car for the repairs. I used a Dremel to cut and remove a plug from the top of the end plates. I then gravity fed Fiberglass resin into the plates until they were full. I then molded the plug that I had cut with fiberglass back onto the plates. I have high hopes that the heat produced by the curing resin will help the plates conform to the shape they need to be in even after they have been removed from the hatch.
