Spoiler delete help

Hey guys I just got my spoiler off and now i have to deal with that adhesive crap left over. I got off as much as i could with a razor blade then i tried the goo gone. It breaks it down but then it just spreads around. Now i have a bunch of gunk smudges on my trunk. Also whenever i do manage to get it off ( if u can help) what should i use to temporarily fill the holes (specifically would be nice). Thanks

I have found that a little bit of WD-40 will pretty much break down most types of adhesive residue.

Plastic putty knife wrapped in a t-shirt with hair spray and a blow dryer takes it off really quick. You can use your fingers just be careful you may end up with blisters.

To fill the holes temporarily you could use duct tape on the inside on or go buy some silicone any type and put a bead on the inside of each hole. Do you plan on getting then filled and painted? Idk if your going for the no spoiler look but if not check out the gt500 spoilers they look great on gt's.

I have heard of some people putting nylon plugs in the holes and painting them. I think Sqidd did that before he had a body shop fill them. I saw a picture of a car like this and it looked good. I too like the no spoiler look but dont feel like paying a body shop the $300 to do it right.

Napta will work also. 3M makes a product that works good also.

A little paint thinner will get it right off. Just spray it on a rag and wipe it off.

You might want to just replace the rear deck lid with a spoiler delete one. It will probably be cheaper in the end.

Forged bottom end, Ported heads, Saleen super charger, 2.8 blower pulley/15psi, Dual stage water to air intercooler, AFCO heat exchanger, battery relocated, Twin GT500 fuel pumps, T-56 trans, Aluminum flywheel, Aluminum driveshaft, 3.73 rear gears, Eaton TruTrac Diff, TA Performance rear end girdle, Racecraft suspension system, UCA, LCA, panhard bar, 15" slotted front rotors w/ 6 piston calipers, Carbon Fiber front splitter/rear diffuser, and bunch of other stuff
RWHP/RWTQ is adequate

Since you plan on a spoiler I would just use duct tape on the inside for temporary. Gt500 spoiler from spoilerstore on eBay is $120 for great quality. And the gt500 spoiler reuses two of the same holes for bolts and the rest is by 3m tape. Check mine out in my profile. If you got any other questions feel free to pm me.
