Okay, here's the deal...
I've got a 77 Camaro with just the center of the rear spoiler mounted, not the two side pieces. I have the parts and I want to put the new pieces on. I have three questions.
1. Is mounting it as simple as lining it up and drilling the hills and bolting it in, or is there more involved?
2. There is a small crack in one of the pieces, not very big, about two inches long and not to deep. Can this be fixed with bondo or some type of filler or do I even need to worry about it?
3. My car is red w/ black stripes and the spoiler is more or less white with some brown and yellow striping. I plan to primer the car soon and was wandering how it might look if, until it was primered, I sanded the spoiler to get rid of the decals and then just spray paint it black. I know this is cheap, but will it work and is there any other way to do it?

Thanks in advance, I realize that this is a big question and appreciate any help.

No, line it up drill the holes set it in postion use a nut with a washer attached, gob some 3M window sealer urethane ribbon around the washer and tighten it. this will prevent water from entering that hole and rusting your deck lid and trunk out. By all means just sand it and prime it black with the rest of the car. Don't worry about that crack, you can't do much but grind it out to a valley and fille it with fiberglass or a two part clay, but its nothing to be worried about.

thanks a lot dude

I am glad you told me about the sealer, I would not want my decklid rusting out. You said to prime it black, so use black primer or prime it and them spray paint it black? Sorry if that's a dumb question, but thanks for the help.
