71 Challenger Gull Wing Install on Decklid w/o Holes

(1/3) > >>

82firebird:
I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on the First Place Auto Parts 71 Gull Wing spoiler for our Challenger. I was looking at our decklid this morning and noticed there were no spoiler mounting provisions as are pictured on this decklid:



Will this be a problem when it comes to mounting? Someone mentioned that I may have to notch the bottom of the decklid to make way for the underside brackets. Any truth to this?



Also, does anyone have measurements of how this spoiler should mount on my trunk lid?

72cudamaan:
I believe you would have to notch the decklid. But doesn't FPAP give a template for this?
I would give them a call. They seem first rate.

HP_Cuda:

I'm pretty sure you can buy the decklid with the cutouts already....

I am aware of that but I am not interested in buying a new decklid as ours is already fit and painted.

I have a call into FPAP but I have not heard back from them yet.

82firebird:
I just got off the phone with Fritz from FPAP and he told me it would not be an issue on the Challenger. Other cars require more work, but we should be good to go. He said they include the dimensions as well. I will report back after the install!  :cooldancing:
