Spoiler delete?

I recently deleted my spoiler and i was just wondering if anyone had done this and what you did to fill the holes? i know you can bondo it up which i dont feel like doing, and i also know AM sells little pieces you can put in there, but are there any easy and alternatives to fill the holes?

You can get a rubber grommet. I don't know where, I have seen them on Mustangs.

It'll look better if you fill it then paint it but if you just want to cover the holes some sort of plug will do

Yes the plugs. It looks good. I'll do it eventually. I saw a v6 at a small dealership with a clean trunk, no holes. I wanted it lol.

I was thinking of doing the same thing. Keeping something from every stang I've owned as well haha I missed out on my '66 though, it's gone and there's nothing I can take from it
