Rear Spoiler on 73 vert?
#1
Hey Guy's,is there a measurement for putting a rear spoiler on a 73 vert?
I got a spoiler from NPD for 71-73 rear trunk lid spoiler and the measurement is nowhere close! I'm assuming it's for a mach with a small trunk lid but I've seen them on verts! so just wondering if ya put it where ya want or is ther a measurement to go by? Thank's

Spoilers never came on convertibles so there's no correct spot to put it. I don't like them on convertibles so I never put one on mine but I guess you'll have to eyeball it.

Make sure to put it on the top of the trunk lid. Wink

For me the spoiler on the convert depends on the overall theme of the car. My baby blue convert isn't a good candidate. A red one with hockey stick stripes can look really good.

I like the look of the spoiler on my vert.
I just centered it from side to side and then lined up the back end of the spoiler even with the end of the trunk. (Not the two pedestals, the wing part.)
