About the Product:

The RTR Deck Lid Spoiler is a stamped T- 6061aluminum part that is powder coated with a matte black powder that meets or exceeds most OE Standards.

How to care for your Spoiler: The RTR Spoiler does not require special care. Simply wash with soap and water, and dry. Do not use any waxes or silicon based products on this part. CDC is not responsible for discoloration or inconsistent gloss levels due to improper care.

Kit Components:

  • 1 Spoiler
  • 2 M5 Nuts
  • 1 Alcohol Pack
  • 1 Template

Note: The instructions below are for vehicles equipped without factory spoilers. If vehicle is equipped with factory spoiler, carefully remove it and proceed to step #6. Hint: Take caution when removing factory spoiler. First remove the nuts from inside the deck lid, and then apply masking tape around the pedestal mounts to protect the paint. The factory spoiler is held down with tape that you will need to separate to remove. One way is to use heavy duty fishing line (30lb. or so). Work the fishing line back and forth to cut through the tape. Once all tape is free, lift spoiler from deck lid and remove any remaining tape. Be very careful not to dent/damage the deck lid.

If you are not comfortable removing the factory spoiler, we strongly suggest having a professional do the work for you. Any local body shop should be more than qualified. CDC will not be responsible for any damage to your deck lid during the spoiler removal process.
