    Dodge Stealth Rear Spoiler Removal

    Hmmm it seems that the only guide i was able to find was on google, so for the sake of searching this site, how do you remove the rear spoiler?

    And the reason I'm making this thread, what size of bolts to fill the holes left behind by the spoiler? I know I've seen a thread somewhere with that info, but at least this will make searching this info a bit easier.

    Thanks

    Pull the big plastic panel and there are 4 bolts that hold the wing on. 2 in the center and one one each end. Seen some people use rubber plugs to fill the holes. Don't know what size though.

    bolts/plugs are tacky. if you can't weld it, i wouldn't do it.

    Your car looks sexy with the spoiler, do not spoil it and remove the spoiler!

    Really though, if you want to do it right it involves:
    Remove Spoiler
    Weld over holes
    Grind down welds until smooth
    Primer/Paint hatch


    Do not go cheap on this by using rubber plugs.

    negative. duckbill looks tacked on. you'd have to make one with extensions that cover the r/t tails or the corner-caps...if it was going to look OEM. look at the viper's:



    runs end to end along the back of the car. slapping one on our hatch by itself makes it look like the car has a malignant bone spur.

    Keep the banana, the trim in the "B" pillar...the piece that is the same color of the car, acts like a spoiler as well. It diverts the air by routing the air though its openings to the banana.
