Rear spoiler paint
« on: April 22, 2014, 02:50:48 AM »
Is the bottom part of the rear spoiler that hangs over the trunk lid on each side painted or left original fiberglass color with body color overspray?

 All I have ever seen are painted. This way it is body color with the trunk lid up. Most people paint the spoiler separate from the car anyway. Hope this helps.

I'm currently searching the web trying to find pics and only see a couple that show body color overspray not a solid color. For those of you that have originals or know, I would appreciate you to chime in, maybe post a pic.

Here's a photo of mine, made when I removed it to repair a broken stud...  painted properly on the ends, and very heavy overspray (or light paint?)..  elsewhere underneath.

Here is a shot of mine, it hasn't been off the car since it left the factory, and still has the original paint as well.

Here are both sides of the "short" spoiler on my 02D Norwood '69 Z/28 - hasn't been touched since the day it was built.

Thanks John. I started reading that awhile back but just haven't gone too far into it yet for various reasons.
