    We want to try and foil the rear spoiler to give some more accents to the roadster.

    Can anyone post how - if possible at all - to remove the rear spoiler. Is it just screwed on from left/right of the trunk?

    Thanks...

    Must be a way somehow...

    Well, I did look, it does look like just four bolts from in the trunk. But I'd have to really look close in daylight to make sure the parts weren't painted together before I'd try anything.

    So I took a look at this today. The spoiler is attached to the body via four bolts which can be accessed from the trunk lid when opened. There are also four rubber spacers between the spoiler and the rest of the carbody/trunk; I expect the spoiler can be easily removed without damaging the paint. Good luck.

    Thanks DRM. That sounds very promising. Now I just need the roadster (...waiting..........) and some 3M DI-NOC carbon foil... ;)
