#11
Be careful with the heat gun. You can burn that up pretty quick. Not sure what the weather forecast is in your area but I find that leaving an item like this sitting in the sun for an extended period of time helps a lot.

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

the fit was off by more than some time in the sun....maybe the Arizona sun would work, but not the NJ sun

Mine looks like the bottom pic as well. This is a different type of measurement, but I came up with 59" across the front lip of the spoiler, and then 14" for each side on the outer lip. Decades ago I always assumed the front spoiler was part of the Mach 1 package, but then learned it was only factory-installed on the Boss 351 cars. Can you imagine how many of these were installed on '71 to '73 Mustangs over the years by dealers, owners, etc.?

Top one looks like it might fit a 69 or 70?

I do not think that the factory installed the boss spoilers either. I think the Dealer had to install it. 
I just put a NOS Ford one on my 73 Mach 1 I did not measure it but I think I took some pics. I go to pick up the car on Saturday and bring it back home I can get some pics then Ford actually called it an "Air Foil" not a spoiler. The one I took off was also NOS and it had just broke half into without being hit. It is ABS plastic like grill, console and interior plastic parts.
