What other spoilers fit the Fiero Width and stand locations. I have a spare trunk lid and looking to add a spoiler, but don't want to use the factory one. Kinda like the Grand prix / grand am type. Don't want something too small or too long. Notchback lid

So you're looking for one that bolts on using the factory holes? I assume you're talking about the fastback GT type spoiler with the associated four holes?

I don't think any others match up with the factory Fiero wing stand holes.

Here's an ~07 GP spoiler on a Fiero: http://www.fiero.nl/forum/F...L/000115-9.html#p336

Yes 4 holes. It's going on a notchback. I know / I doubt any others have the same spacing as the Fiero. But with asking.

There was only the one factory spoiler/wing used on the Fieros, fastback or notchie.

I recall that something's different... is it the stands?

One pair of wing stand studs was moved. Other than that, everything is identical.

While not what you asked for, the Dodge Shadow spoiler might cover the stock mounting. You'd have to drill new holes to mount it but I don't know if you'd have to fill the old ones. I'd apply silicone over them from the bottom just to make sure you don't get leakage through them if the spoiler covers them. It flows pretty well with the notchies lines and fits pretty good to. I liked it and used it on my old Fiero.





Some of the pics from when I installed it before paint. Mine had the luggage rack so I had to fill several holes.

The holes on the notchie lid are in a slightly different position front-rear, I think, but the wing/stands is the exact same part on both. The aftermarket taller/shorter/stealth wing stands work the same on both fastback and notchie.

This rear spoiler came off another GM car from the mid 80's. I don't remember which car... but I think it is from a mid 80's firebird. It is shorter and thinner than the stock Fiero spoiler.

I too have the Dodge Shadow/Plymouth Sundance rear spoiler on my 85 GT. A great alternative "wraparound" spoiler. And you can get them locally at PNP's for around $30 bucks. You will have left over wing stand holes but you could fill the holes or be lazy like me and put in beauty plugs.

Like a lot of guys have said-- there are little to no options out there that use the OE holes, unless you're talking about one of those hideous shopping cart fast and furious spoilers that have adjustable brackets. I think your better bet is going to be to find the style you want and do the body work to mount it, meaning filling the holes. That's not hard, and you can get plugs for them if you don't want to go all out and fill them in.

I have seen new spoilers that require no drilling. Clip around the trunk lid.

Somewhat true... 86-88, the stands for fastbacks and notchbacks were the same. There were three holes in the bottom, two were used at one time and the position of the rear stud was changed depending upon the model. 84-85.... the stands were only for notchbacks as there are only 2 mounting holes on bottom and they will not properly line up with a fastback decklid.

Ah right. Thanks for the clarification.

I had a wing from a first gen Ford probe on my 85 notchie. Pretty similar to the stock wing, but it sat lower on the trunk and not quite as wide, front to back, but perfect width left to right. I dont know if mounting holes match, because i didnt have a wing to start with, but I would assume they don't match.

I used a 93 mustang spoiler. I found where others had done it, so I gave it a try. Somewhat like an IMSA spoiler, but not as large. It took some fitting, and covered some of the mounting holes. I can't remember exactly which holes I had to fill, since the lid had originally had a luggage rack which required some filing.

Although this spoiler doesn't match the holes, I've seen it on one or two notchie Fieros. Really looked better than I would have expected.
Basically, any one-piece spoiler that fit on a third gen F-body should work on a notchie Fiero. At least in terms of width.

I agree with this one. Looked at a Formula and the owner had one on the back of an aero notchie. It looked much better than it should have. Fit like it was made for the car.
