    Hello everyone, I require two spoiler studs & pretty sure a three piece spoiler car uses the same ones. Thanks to another Nasty Member as he supplied a few pics of what these look like removed, thanks.

    Hi Sonny,
    if you don't find any, these are darn close:

    I think just the stud that goes in the spoiler needs slightly shortened.

    Just try to ignore the "Ford Hood Scoop" part!

    It appears the spoiler studs are standard thread and the link above is screw like. Will that work in the fiberglass?

    They screw in but I would use a bit of epoxy to anchor them better. Use a couple of nuts in a jam nut arrangement to screw them in. Two of the threads in my spoiler were pulled completely out so it didn’t matter for me.
    If the threads in your spoiler are still good best though is to find originals if you can

    Thank you Dave for the alternative stud suggestion as those would have worked out very well, I have managed to locate a few original ones through a friend and Nasty Z Member.

    Apparently, those were studs for a ford hood scoop, now the ONLY reason you put a hood scoop on a ford is to scoop up the pieces that fly off it as it limps down the road........

    When I needed studs for my one piece rear spoiler, I stole a couple of them from the center piece of an old three piece rear spoiler I had laying around.

    If anyone happens to have one of these laying around I'm interested. I'd rather give someone here the money than AMK.
