Factory Wing moved back?

I am thinking about painting my wing red and moving it back 2" or 3" so it hangs over the trunk a little more. How do you guys think it would look, I want some opinions before I do it.

If you are gunna move it back I would do it just enough to where the stock mounting holes won't show. Not too sure how far you can move it back without them showing. But you could always get one of those rounded bolts and paint it black and put a nut on the other side. I personally wouldn't like the look, but if its what you wanna do just gopher it!!!

Yes I have a cobra R wing on there now, and it looks wack lol so I want to go back to the original spoiler but I want a twist to it, you know? But I'm very undecided but I have red decals on the front so I'm going to paint the factory wing red and maybe move back idk yet.

you will have to drill more holes, and probably the ones there wont be covered.

If the holes are OEM location wise then you can go with a saleen 1 peice or similar and they look different and are not super costly

I'll look into them, and I wouldn't be drilling holes lol the place that paints it for me I want to see if they can install it. When they installed the cobra R wing I'm pretty sure they welded it on

If you would rather go with a 99-00 wing then it would look pretty good moved back. I moved mine probably an inch and it looks pretty different.

I didn't know the spoilers on the 00 GT were different than the 04 GT I never realized it. I think it would look good painted red and moved back a little bit, but no more than 2"
