Ah okayy I see, probably a newbie question I just figured they made certain plugs to do this with.. I'm gonna hit up the local auto parts stores around here after I get this work weekend over with(hard to make time when you work 12 hour shifts) and try to find a few. Probably a 1/2" or 3/8" is what I'll need, but I'm gonna start the removal process Monday and will get some before and after pics

One is 3/8 and I think the smaller was 5/16. In fact after typing that I feel more confident those are the sizes. But please double check, I could be mistaken

I think it depends on the look you are wanting. In my opinion, new edges without the spoiler look more aggressive so if thats what you are going for, spoilerless is probably what you want. I agree with the guys above suggesting that you try it out w/o the spoiler for a few weeks and see if you like it. For me though, I love my spoiler, I feel like it really completes the look of my car.

See that's what I'm saying I love my spoiler too because it flows with the car so well.. I am taking it off though for awhile too see how she looks and with the right setup it will look fantastic!! But while it's off I'm gonna paint it black.. I'm going to post pics of the car w/o the spoiler and pics with it painted black and see what everyone thinks.. Because all the advice everyone has givin has been amazing

Here ya go. A side by side shot of both of our Mustangs. Same color, my wife's 3.8 without, and my GT with the spoiler. I still prefer wingless. Swapping trunks when we paint them. Works out since she likes the spoiler.

I think the spoiler makes my GT look taller and squished whereas my wife's looks wider and sleeker.

Yep, that looks mean. These things really need to be dropped and no spoiler. Or at most a small duck tail.

I love the Raxiom Icons. I'm getting a second set for my wife's car as well. I've also decided to pick up a couple of the sequential harnesses for them as well. I regret not getting them in the first place.

I finally got my refund back from AM yesterday (thanks to the reps on this board) so that made me smile. And the smoked Raxioms are $50 off on AM right now so as soon as that refund drops I'm going to snag a set before the August sale ends. I decided not to get the icons btw, I think the regular smoked ones look better actually.


But that's just my opinion.

The sixer does look a lot lower and sleeker for some reason lol but I do like those tails a lot on your Gt (they have grown on me so much)... anyways both rides will look amazing when your finished with your builds I'm sure of it

I admit they didn't win me over when I first had seen pictures online. After seeing a few at Mustang Week I bought a set. I like them more as time goes. I'll attach a pic with them on for your viewing pleasure!

Some people just don't like them at all. I understand that and it doesn't bother me in the slightest. They may be like me and just need time for them to grow on them. I don't like the way projector headlights look on a new edge, but the beauty is I'm not gonna use them!

I can't remember who it was that got a set and planted the seed for me, I believe it was soccer. If I can do the same for someone else then all is good.
