Thumbs down Spoiler help....

So I go to close my trunk today...and the corner of the spoiler bounces back up at me...stripped the threads out in the spoiler. What can I do short of buying a new spoiler or put new threads inside the spoiler?

What I'm going to do to fix it is just put some jbweld in the stripped out hole and just jb weld the bolt in there. Now, next question...should I move it back like alot of people do? Anyone have good pictures of cars with the spoiler moved back?

And I figured out why it broke, cheap non-ford product. The ford spoilers come with the bolts in the spoiler and you put the nut on inside the trunk. My cheap spoiler has nuts in the spoiler and you put a bolt through the bottom. So therefor...it cheap...
