GT500 rear spoiler install

This is my first time writing one of these. This is a great website btw.

I just bought a GT500 rear spoiler for my 06 GT which previously had no spoiler at all. Since there has to be some drilling involved should I take it to a shop or is it easy enough to do it myself?

I'd let a shop do it. I have No experience with doing body work, but I'd rather avoid any mistakes on my part, so I'd let a professional do that work.

No, but it's not a expensive job, should only be a couple hundred. But if that includes prep and paint, then a couple Hundred more. But shouldn't be too much.

Is it a plug and play system? If it is it should only take you like 30 to 40 mins.

It should be as easy as swapping the lights out... Seriously, basically twist and remove all lights after the housing is removed from the car and put them in the new housings.

Very easy. Open your trunk. Remove the retaining clips for the trim. Pull back carpet. Remove nuts (10mm I believe). Pull light housing slightly. Twist and pull lightbulb inserts. Swap lights and rewind... Again, VERY easy.

Re: GT500 rear spoiler install

they make little things you can use to mark the holes with and then you simply drill/bolt on but those little plastic things might be hard to find. A shop can put it on for you probably but I would just make sure they dont screw anything up etc. You can check the underside to see if there are markings for the holes from the factory that were just never drilled as well.

I have a gt500 spoiler on my 07gt. It had a spoiler before but the gt500 only reused two of four existing holes. I had to drill two myself. The spoiler came prepainted and A shop quoted me two hours of shop time at $45 an hour here in Texas. So it just depends if it's worth it to you or if you feel comfortable doing it.

Nightmare, what did you do with the other two holes that the new one didn't reuse? I'm thinking about doing the same. I know a guy who owns a body shop but just curious what you did.

I got some plastic interior caps from like autozone or oreileys or somewhere for a buck or two. And from there you can choose to either 3M tape em or use like a silicone sealant to make sure there's no leaks. Then I just put the spoiler over them. They have a couple that are looked painted black which I used or there are flat black ones too. My car is black so it worked perfect but they will be under cover anyways.

Sweet. I was thinking about going the same spoiler and didn't know the holes would cover. Now I know to add it to my list!

Just looked at your rear end (no homo), where did you find a deck lid cover that covered the fear badge?

It didn't cover it. I had to remove it. Then the deck lid covered the holes and cleaned up the keyhole. I got it on a local forum here in town from a guy on there.

Yeah thats what I meant. I like that look. I'm still delaying on what I want to do to my rear. Already had a painter spray tinted clear coat on my lenses.
