    So I went wingless this weekend :banana: plugged the holes, going to sand them down a little and paint them so you can't really tell. Personally, I think it looks badass. The only problem is you can tell where the spoiler was pulled off, there are like big oval marks where it used to attached, with gunk and dirth such, probably because it hasn't been removed since 1998. I tried washing it with dish detergent, and then goo gone, and it's still almost all there. Any way to clean it so there are no marks? Aside from the hole plugs, I don't want anyone to be able to tell there was a spoiler there. Thanks in advance!

    you might be able to get away with a very tiny amount of lacquer thiner. Use it very conservatively though because it WILL remove the paint.

    If you were careful, rubbing compound might work, but like thinners, dont go ballistic with it. ;)

    That's what I was thinking.


    Try Clay, then polish, then lauqer if it's still there.

    Well, technically it would make those marks dissapear. But the mess you'd be left with would laugh at any sort of cleaner.... :rollinglaugh:
