new front spoiler does not fit...either my car got wider or
#1
I ordered a front spoiler from CJ Pony parts.  I finally got some extra hands and was going to install it today.  after trying to hold it in place based on pictures I've found on this site, the spoiler is just not wide enough to fit into place.  if I fit 1 side, its not even close on the other. the new spoiler measures 64.25" from the outside edges. i measured by laying it flat on the ground.  does anyone know if this is right? because either the part os too small, or my car got wider.  this is the part I bought https://www.cjponyparts.com/front-spoile...73/p/FS5B/

Did you verify that what you ordered is what you got? Part number on box correct? Is it from Scott Drake?

in this pic I compare the spoiler sold by CJ Pony parts( the one I bought) for 71-73 mustangs to the part sold by Scott Drake. they are obviously quite a bit different

Which picture is yours? The bottom picture appears to be the correct one.

I would contact CJ, their supplier may have messed up by putting an incorrect spoiler in the correct box.

That looks like the same one that NPD shows

It looks correct based on the picture you sent. Did you go to CJPony's site and check their install directions along with the photo's they have. If it is not being placed in the right orientation it will not fit.

I had a lot of trouble getting one to fit. 64.25 inches is close to what it should be. I fought and fought and ended up using a heat gun on it to get it to cooperate. Here’s a link to the thread I had with pics.

in fact I printed pics from a thread on this site that showed the correct orientation. I had 3 guys, myself + 2 mechanics trying to fit the piece in place. after getting 1 side lined up, it was short a couple of inches on the other side. I can see however that heating it up might solve the problem. the issue seems to be the angle of the returns on both ends
