Unless you have body experience, for the price of all the different materials you would have to buy, it would be easier and cheaper just to take it to a shop.

But here goes.
wax and grease remover.
small grinding wheel
urethane repair product
sand paper <- 80, 120, 180, 320, 500
primer
tack rag
paint
paint gun.

If it's not a structural crack, you can fill it with a specialized two-part rubber bumper repair concoction. I don't remember the name, but your autopaint store should have some. It comes in two tubes, and the product name is a 4-digit number (sorry for the ambiguity). I also believe the package is purple. (How's that for a hint). Anyway, I've used it for similar applications and it seems to work okay.

Plastomix makes products for that sort of repair..Some have even used one of the palstic welders from harbor frieght for those repairs tho I would try that on some scrap before doing it on the car..

Last summer I fixed my kids spoiler on his Cobra, same year as yours but the spoiler is different than the GT but I'm positive they are the same material.

V-groove the crack and do not wash with wax and grease remover to be safe, do any cleaning of paint before you sand.

No adhesion promoter is needed but if you use one it will not hurt.

Use two part cartages from Duramix (4040), Sem, 3M, Fusor it does not matter as they are all good, just make sure repair material is for rigid plastic, like the 4040 of Duramix.

Shoot it in the V-grove and spread tight with a spreader.

Finish from there as there is nothing to it.
