Notice the spoiler thingy over the rear window.

What was your final installation fastening method? Nice smooth looking car. That vinyl base molding you used for gasket material is very useful. I used it to make the lip spoiler on the front of my custom nose on the V8 car. Been there 8 or 9 years now. Again, Really nice car, please give us a few more full car shots.

I ended up drilling two holes on each side for 5/16" bolts.
I got some of those eyelet bolts and used construction adhesive to bond them into the bottom of the spoiler.
Then I drilled some holes in a couple of 1/2" mending plates for extra holding.
I just slid the bolts on the spoiler into the holes in the buttress and used nylon lock nuts.
It`s on there.
Here is a picture with the new bumper mounted.
I guess I will see how long I can go without getting pulled over for no front plate.

I love that spoiler! I wonder if it would fit my Mera? You should start making these and sell them (you know with all the free time you have, ha). I love everything you have done with this car, it is just awesome!

The spoiler is actually made for a 308 so there ya go.
PM Sage as he is the one who makes them and could probably tell you for sure.

Man, that looks great!

Super job on the spoiler AND the bumper.

This is fast becoming one of my favorite Fieros...up there with Raydar's and Troyboys....there are more than a few others too, but very nice work and it definitely paid off.

HAGO!

I made some vinyl gaskets out of that flexible baseboard they use in office buildings.
I didn`t want the spoiler to sit directly on the fastback clip.



LOOKS GREAT! wish list

I had Sages type spoiler on my 308. They are originally on Ferraris as an option. I just liked the look.

To attach mine, I drilled oversize holes, 2 on each base end. Then inserted a bolt head in and put fiberglass resin in the hole. Put tape around threads so none gets on them. Then drilled matching holes in the hatch panel, dropped the bolts thru and put nuts and washers on. It was a tight fit for the nuts and my fingers, but doable.

Yea, Sage offered to install the bolts in the spoiler but since I wasn`t sure how it was going to fit I just had him leave it blank.
I guess the buttress on the 308 lies flatter because when I put it on the Fiero it was pointing down at the back quite a bit.
I ended up cutting the fiberglass completely out of the stands and cutting into the front of it to lie it down more where it gets close to the roof.
Originally, it had more of an opening between the bottom of the spoiler and the roof so I cut it down as much as I could without making it sit right down on the roof.
