Tough call was it only the rear spoiler that was damaged?? If you are replacing the trunk lid for damage just go with the big wing. Do what makes you happy!

Just got rear ended today in my Race red gt500 and lost the spoiler.

i don’t know if I should replace it with the same or a cftp type spoiler??

what do you guys think? The car has all the plastic trim painted high gloss black.

Sorry to hear about the incident. I moved your post here to the performance mods section. I have a buddy that bought the CFTP OEM wing to replace his swing. It turned out nice… looks great! Another buddy just got one of the first recreations from Function Factory Performance. He has not installed it yet. I also just sold my 2nd OEM wing to a friend who’s base model is in production. This mod is somewhat common. You really feel the wing at work keeping the ass end planted. You feel this in the turns as well as on the straights when hitting bumps.

Damn sorry, SoCal and I will presume that your gorgeous painted stripes took a hit as well. As for the wing, I'm with the camp that says, "Do what makes you feel the best," and the heck with everyone else. Yours is one of THE prettiest Shelbys I've ever seen and I love Race Red.

Hope you're back on the road in short order.

Wow that Sucks sorry to hear that this happen your Ride looks so nice I like the glossy black look

I replaced mine as it looks so much better that is why I did it, local FORD did my install and repaint of the trunk lid. My detailing guy redid my Black Race stripes I got those though Bemaro Talk to Benjamin so you can just buy the trunk and the stripes no need so i didn't pay 750.00 bucks for the full set.

Do what makes you happy. Its to bad this happen to you SoCal, Good Luck on whatever you decide```````` Plant Car Vehicle Motor vehicle Hood

Happy to see you have my wing side pane decals. I designed those for Bemaro. My initial rough outline that I sent Benjamin is below. They have been popular. The wing looks fabulous on your car!

Yep the spoiler in the whole trunk Lid is going to need to be replaced so that’s the only reason I was contemplating this.

Do you guys think it will look good even though all my trim parts are high gloss black? Or should I stick with the OEM base wing in high glass black?

Sure you can always paint the wing if it doesn’t look good. I doubt anyone will notice. I have actually considered doing it but I really like the base wing.

totally sucks about the accident, hopefully it wasn’t an illegal without insurance.

Will it look good…? It will look AWESOME! The CF goes well with gloss black. I have gloss black stripes and it all works nicely.

I just can't find a damn wing now. Anderson looks like they are back ordered 4-6 mths.
i actually spoke to AC today (they are about 7 mins from my place). they said they have 60 backordered cftp rear wings and at least a 9 mos wait time. they said it takes them 1 week to make 1 cftp rear wing. best to go with another brand. the FFP looks good. not sure about the vicrez one though...

I’ll also toss this one in from another page @Goose17 reccomended in 2021. It’s on sale $879 right now non CF gloss black.

That is where I got mine took 4 months but my understanding it is a shorter wait now. Plus they're less expensive still high Quality my Detailing guy friend said the CF was perfectly done. Yes they have Glossy black or CF which is nice. They're a Good choice

the vicrez cf wing, it has visible screws on the sides though right? they're not hidden or maybe at the very least you could use black ones?

Yes they do, the screws are black but visible, I guess you could cover and seal them. My PPF guy mention that before. But it doesn't bother me, although I wish it wasn't like that But I think several other after market Wings are that way also? Not sure.

the auto-haus cftp has exposed screws that are silver but they said they can powder coat them black. still visible though. i am fairly sure that the FFP unit is screwless and thus it is just like the OEM one, AFAIK.
