Re doing my 73 Esprit. I have a formula hood and the car had a spoiler that fit great before it had some body work which consisted of lower front quarter patch and lower rear quarter patch. Because the lower rear quarter was just that and not a full quarter. My spoiler end on that side no longer contours the quarter.(see photo) the top half of the rear quarter where the spoiler holes were drilled remained but when the panel was replaced something went wrong. Is there any fix besides starting over completely. Also, for years the truck would never stay open, so I finally bought the torsion rods for the Trans Am, when I realized that one side is the same for all models and the other side is heavier. Once I replaced these, the heavier side tweaked the deck lid up in the air. I tried shimming the hinges and was able to get the rear of the deck lid to sit almost level on that side, but at the cost of having the front part sink in. With all of this hassle, I'm debating on abandoning the spoiler, my hesitation being that now the holes in the quarter and deck lid will need to be patched and filled. With all that being said, should I go for the spoiler look or ditch it? The car has a maroon interior and was white which is probably the color I'm going to repaint it. I'm also ditching the Rally IIs and white letter BFGs for torq thrusts with black centers and black wall tires with 275/60 drag radials out back and probably 235/60s up front. So what should I do, try to keep the spoiler or ditch it?
