so I was going to try to take my wing off to paint it and turns out I have 2 stripped bolts... the nuts spin with the bolts when I turn them... any advise or tips on how to get them off?

Not without damaging the wing and maybe the trunk lid--there is not much room in which to work but maybe you could get in there with a Dremel tool and a small cutoff wheel to cut the bolt? Or maybe cut and split the nut.

It is mostly likely that the bolts are turning in the plastic pillar, leaving the only option to pry the wing off, ripping the stud heads from the pillar. And then deal with the damage afterwards (mount a couple of studs with JB-Weld, etc.).

I would just find a spoiler less trunk from a junkyard and paint it. That seems like a bunch of trouble
