So you can see it when backing up, main reason to get it besides for looks. Im not looking for downforce, not planning on going fast enough for that to be an issue, 125mph+ or something like that. It looks ok without it, but would look better with. So I cant get get the 95+ one to fit on a 93? Anyone know why? The deck lid looks to exact, then again, Ive only seen pictures, havent seen one upclose. From pictures the 95+ looks a lil nicer than the 93-94.
Thanks

And yes, I can see my spoiler when I back up. It may help. It'* also convenient for setting beer bottles on during regional meets.

You must not claybar and polish enough. I cant set damn near anything on there with plastic on the bottom. Gets annoying when you're setting detailing bottles and such on there.

you need a spoiler from 92-95. In 96 the body looks changed but all the sheet metal stayed the same , only the hood, bumpers, decklid and taillights changed. If you want to put a 96+ deck lid on you will need the decklid and taillights. Alot of people doubt this can be done, but it can.

kaps, here are a couple of closeup pics of the spoiler I got for mine last year. This one came off a 95 Bonne. Btw, what color is yours? Reason I am asking there is a 94 Black Bonnie at a local wrecker that has the spoiler still on the trunk lid. A little faded but otherwise in fairly decent condition.

Yeah, my car is black, but I think that might be a little too far away from me as I live in central Jersey. How much was yours from the wreckerif thats where you got it? So you can see the spoiler when you back up, right? LOL just want to make sure, only Willwren responded with an answer to that question. Im about 6'2 just in case peoples height comes into play about seeing the deck or not.

I got my spoiler from a place in Rochester, NY. I think it was 80.00. The one here at the local u-pull- it is around 20.00 for the spoiler but I don't know how long it will be there. Parts disappear fast at that place.

Cool. Do you have any pictures of the inside trunk lid with the spoiler intact? I looked at my car, can see where the outer bolts go, not sure about the inner ones. Also you have a phone number/address for the u pull it place? $20 sounds like a deal and a half, around here they want 75-100 for em. Plus I need a rear bumper cover if the price is right. Thanks man

The spoilers are nice looking additions to those cars....I can't picture mine without it. They are made of plastic (thankfully) not that rubber that the GTA spoilers were made from. You can see them from the outer mirrors because they wrap around the decklid a little bit.
