I've tried claybar without any success and some rubbing compound without success as well. I just kind of gave up on those and ended up tossing my spoiler back on after a week or so.

Wool pad, random orbital on medium, ultimate compound. Lean into it (don't be scared). As long as you keep moving, it will come out. Might take a number of attempts.

Usually I go over bad spots (friends cars for example) with about 3 main passed ( each with a top/bottom , left to right 8 pass ). Leaning more on the early passes. And increasing the speed slightly at the end letting the buffer do the work.

Then some polish then wax. .

Yeah unfortunately I don't have those tools or else I would have tried it, but that's some great info!

Exactly what I did. It's obviously not a close up pic like the original post but I love how the car looks without it.

After. You can see where the spoiler actually wore away the paint though. I had the wing off to dip it, so I just cleaned off the lid while it was off.

This is what you will use. Bought them at Home Depot for about 70cents. Paint the top with your paint code from ford as many as needed them use clear coat.

No prob. When I saw ur recent post I was thinking I had an extra pair laying around because I need to do mine again. Also if I remember correctly one of the hole sizes is 3/8 so ur best bet is to spend like $3 and get 2 packs of 3/8 and 2 packs of the 1/2inch
