    I'd like to have a rear spoiler like they did for the '03 Woodward cruise, on the 2002 Trans Am, in Michigan. It was like a '72 or so. 3-piece design. I just read about it in HP Pontiac recently. Maybe the article is online with pics. They also made a shaker hood for the car, and had the early 70s style fender air extractors. Car was really well done, like you would expect from a factory effort.

    OK, seems a second gen rear spoiler would work fine. Reember, the 90's Bonnie came with and without spoiler. My two cents, a fine pinstripe following the upper body curves would set it off nicely. Thanks for posting!

    You can't even see the paint underneath the wing well enough to need to machine it. Hand waxing/cleaning is good enough. But I could see how it would be useful information if you were going to repaint it.

    The reason I removed mine was to get the years of built up wax residue from previous owners out from between the spoiler and the deck, right on the edge. I tried a lot of things to get that white stuff out, but never could until I removed it.

    A soft bristle tooth brush has always worked for me.

    Paste waxes help keep that problem from happening too. Liquids can get runny and end up everywhere. Toothbrush is a good idea though, I've been using q-tips.

    I must say that our F-bodies look fugly without spoilers. I took mine off the Camaro and it looked even worse.

    I agree. Maybe a big ducktail spoiler tho, like GM did for the '03 Woodward cruise.
