    The repro should have other mounting bosses for the studs,try measuring them first.If it works out,pull the studs(coarse screw threads)and mix up some fiberglass resin,pour in new holes and then screw in the studs.If not,weld up the old holes,drill new ones.Good Luck.

    P.S.The spoiler box makes an excellent template

    If ya go to the OER one pc spoiler give us a ring as we can save ya some green when ordering one. Also feel free to call as I think I have one on the shelf and can check the mounting tabs for you.

    No there not, the holes on both edges are off, all the center holes are the same.

    Here's one data point for you: I have a '71 that was drilled for a three piece. The spoiler is long gone now...I picked up a used GM one piece spoiler and its studs line up with the holes in the deck lid - as drilled for a three piece.

    Tall 3-piece spoiler:

    Short 1-piece spoiler:

    Mine originally had the tall spolier. When I swapped to the short one the outside holes were different which agrees with the above diagrams. All other holes were the same.

    Orange 71...Did the short spoiler cover the holes from the 3 peice one? Or did you have to fill them?
