Just wondering if this spoiler is suitable for a 1986, currently it has the cheap looking luggage rack on the back or whatever you call it.

That is a stock Fiero spoiler.

Yes, it is suitable.

You may have to remove parts of the luggage rack to get this fit.

Find another decklid. Filling and smoothing the luggage rack holes is a time consuming job, and they usually still show up after paint.

As mentioned, that will leave a lot of holes. I had an OEM luggage rack on a coupe. I just left the black strips on the decklid and reshaped the ends on a few and bolted them back down. that way I didn't have to mess with holes in the decklid and filling them.

I saw a photo where the person left the luggage rack on when they added the spoiler. I believe the only thing they had to remove was the small crossbar of the rack. Didn't look bad with both on there.

Newfie, you may find that you will have to relocate one stud in each stand if you're installing it on a notchback, but the stands are made to allow for that. Probably have to make new holes in the mounting gaskets, too.

As the spoiler is pictured on a fastback, he WILL have to relocate the stud.

Isn't that a sweet design, though? Kudos to the engineers at Pontiac for making a dynamic solution like a stud that you can relocate to make the wing stands work for both models.

I believe that was a production year change, though. I think the early stands were only designed for the notchback and had just 2 locations for the studs instead of the 3 of later years.

That is correct. When the fastback was introduced the bottom portion of the spoiler stands were slightly redesigned (i.e., material was added) to allow the relocation of the studs depending on if the spoiler being made were to be fitted to a notchback or fastback. On earlier Fieros that had the spoiler - the 1984 Indy and 1985 GT - the studs cannot be relocated.

Nah, you should be good from what I can see in the pics. You may have to move the rear studs from one hole to another to make it fit, though. All you need is a pair of pliers.
