The Judge Spoiler is getting painted this week...YEAH

I have had my Judge spoiler since Christmas and finally dropped it off to have it painted while I am out of town this week. I hope the color matches the car. I wasn't able to take the car down to the paint store to have them match the color so we used the paint sample book. The body shop is a very reputable shop that does a lot of restorations. They are fixing all of the flaws in the fiberglass, prepping, painting, wet sanding, and polishing the spoiler and hood inserts for $250 - $300. I think that is a pretty good deal. What do you guys think?

Hey, I have another question for everyone????? I also had the hood inserts painted to match the car. My Goat is 2001 Mustang Performance Red (red-orange). Do you guys like the hood inserts painted black or the same color as the car?

I will have the spoiler and inserts installed just in time to take it down to Cruisin Grand in Escondido CA.

Are there any other GTO enthusiasts in Southern California? If so, where do you live and what kind of GTO do you have?

Dale,

I have my hood scoop painted the same color as the car, but the very inside ribs are painted black. Can`t wait to see your ride with the wing on there.

I was thinking about painting the inside black. Do you have a picture of how it looks?

I will post some pics after I get the spoiler on.

Me too. I'll find out tomorrow. I already have the holes drilled in the trunk, so it will only take me a few minutes to install it.

Hollywood huh. I just drove through Hollywood Sunday on my way up to Oxnard to work for the week.

Actually, with the blue charcoal body color, you can`t even tell that the inside ribs are black, it almost all looks the same.

STRIKE ONE - Update on the spoiler.

Well, I got back into town Friday and jumped in the Goat and ran down to pick up my spoiler. It turned out way too orange. We matched it up from the paint sample book because the paint store was closed when I dropped off my spoiler. The shop owner said that we should be right on.

Luckily the shop owner is very reputable and didn't even hesitate. He sent me down to the paint store to have them take a picture of the car that is translated into a paint forumla to mix the exact color. Also, he didn't like how the fiberglass showed a split that they couldn't see until the spoiler was painted, so they are fixing that too.

I will give it another try this Friday when I get back in town. Wish me luck!

Dale

Is your spoiler factory or aftermarket? I ask because I have a Parts Place aftermarket spoiler that is suppose to be very similar to the factory. I was wondering if you have the aftermarket spoiler will you be installing it with a gasket or not? I ask since the factory spoilers did not have gaskets, but I am thinking about using the gasket since I don't want any water leaking into my trunk.

The scoops should be body color with black insets. Only the Judge had the black scoops.

Here is how mine looks:

I got my reproduction spoiler from Ames. Quality is very good. You can only tell it's not original if you look at the underside of it. The seams are a little different from the original.
Mine came with the gaskets and a template for drilling the mounting holes. I have never had any issue with water leakage, though, to be honest, the car rarely ever sees rain. But, when I wash it, it doesn't leak.
If you install one of these, you will probably need to adjust the torsion rods on the trunk lid to compensate for the extra weight of the spoiler.
Here is a closer pic of mine:
