Was trying the temporary spoiler delete to see how i like it and i like the look but one problem...ive washed, claybared, waxed these marks and theyre are still there. Is it actual paint damage? Im about to just slap the spoiler back on if i cant get it to look clean still. I know theres a little paint chip on the left but wont be noticeable with the plugs i got and some touch up. Anyone else's who tried like this??? Thanks guys!

Looks like damage to the clear or the actual paint. Hard to tell. I know it sucks but to do it right you have the holes filled, welds ground/polished and then spray it.

Get a good rubbing compound and go to town on it, if that doesn't work then it is paint damage..... rub your finger nail on it, can you feel anything? If so then it is paint damage.

Not to jack the thread but has anyone done this? I have the high spoiler on my '14 and I want to switch to the gt500 spoiler so I'm trying to get a feel for how much this fill process would cost. Might be cheaper to get a new decklid from eBay and just have it painted.

V6 decklid that doesn't have any wing, get it painted to match, bolt on and go. Problem is finding a good one local to you that isn't dented or rusted or otherwise beat to hell. And being a 14 it will be much harder to find parts from a 10-14...

Welp, there is always the evilbays. However, I'd put up a bunch of wanted ads on all the big Mustang forums and you should get some hits.

Wipe over it with a wet towel if the marks disappear then its in the clear coat and can probably be wet sanded out and buffed to a great looking shine. If they dont disappear then its paint damage and will be a harder fix.
Oh and I saw a great spoiler less deck lid for our cars in the charlotte area on craiglist for cheap. I would look there.
And you will find its impossible to weld on our deck lids as they area fiberglass not metal.

Good Luck!

I went spoiler-less about 2 months ago.. And I have those marks as well ( not as bad as that ) I just got holes and plugged them. Me and JDF tried to clay bar it and it didn't work much at all.. There might be a good wax/compound that could help clean it up a little bit.

I tried a rubbing compound and it helped a little bit on his ^ car but it's still pretty noticeable. I was doing that by hand so a DA buffer might get a bit more out

If its just in the clear coat then a lite wet sanding with some 2000 and 3000 grit and a good polishing compound and foam pad will get rid of pretty much all of it.
Follow that up with a great waxing and it will look great.
