    It's the next thing I want to do with my stang; what size plugs do I need to fill up the holes, and where can I find them? Thanks! :)

    Don't do it :slap: :slap:.. Plugs just look like a cheapass way of doing it.. If you want to do it, do it right and get them filled..

    edit: but if you must, just go pick some up at any auto parts store, I bought a multipack because the holes are 2 different sizes.

    i used the black pushpins that you use for the interior and painted them with some touch up paint...i will be putting mine back in soon enough.

    You could also do like I did and find someone who doesn't have o ne on theirs and trade deck lids with them,if you're also lucky like me,you'll find one in the same color as yours.There's a shitload of base models roaming around that would probably like one, them voila' no spoiler no holes.

    They are called Hillman's Hole Plugs and Home Depot and Lowes sell them in packs. I think it was 3/8 and 7/8 but you could just measure your holes to be certain what the 2 sizes are.

    I used the black interior push-clips and siliconed them from the inside, it has yet to leak.

    Not too worried about that, still looks 100x better sans spoiler.

    i have to agree with you drop, i took my wing off and i don't like it one bit. It just don't look right, i've seen 99 up's with no wing and they look good, especially the bullet clones and bullets

    that's why you paint them with touch up paint then clear them..


    i'm too lazy to go to autozone and pick up to more pushpins, so if it looks like its gonna rain, i just put some tape over the two holes i have open. :hammer:
