hay guys

im am thinking of taking the spoiler off my el...

i have taken it off and sussed it out...after washing it with water it leave very little rust stains on the boot of the car...what can i do to get rid of these stains?

also THE HOLES!...what can i do to fill these holes up or at least make them not as noticeable?

what do u guys think of the spoiler on the EL...yay or nay?

debadging an EL... i want to get rid of the falcon futura on the back of my car...is this recommended( easily do-able) with an EL?

can i also get rid of the ford badge on the back or will that leave a big mark when i take it off?

1 more thing!!!!!!!
i currently have a 2.5" exhaust all the way through...with a tip thats getting rusty. now i dont like the look of the exhaust on the el( dont know why)...when you look at it from the side you can see alot of the exhaust exposed....i dont like this :)

i was thinking of getting a twin exhaust muffler fitted but their seems to be no room for it to go onto the exhaust because the exhaust itself does not go in a straight line long enough for 1 to be fitting straight on

is it possible to get a twin exhaust tip? would u guys recommened the tip that goes on normally and comes out sort of like a retangular shape?

ty for ur time

I love the spoiler on an EL lol, I been trying to find one since I got my car and cant get one anywhere :( Easy to remove badges but why would you want to??

Im pretty sure the badge would leave a faded circle of paint..

With the exhaust I have a twin on mine, and so do a lot of my mates so I dont see any problem with it

Any tip can be fitted, theres heaps of room there.

Badges - Falcon and Ford badges have legs, which means each one has 2 holes. No good.
Futura doesnt, so you can just bend it off the Falcon badge and trim it, which is what I did.

Personally I think EF/EL need a spoiler of some sort unless you're dropped into the weeds with 18"+s and a full kit. they just dont look right

Typically they bog they weld the holes up, bog and respray the bootlid. Usually costs around $200ish. It would be a lot better for you to get another bootlid. But I agree with the above. No spoiler looks s**t unless you do what I did 8-)

20"s are sweet as :D

My cars on superlows, and the rubber on the rear is tucked inside the guard, with the front not quite.
I took my spoiler off, just for the fun of it. I didnt like what I saw :?

or like this- they are JunBL ones and have the baffles in them so sound quite raspy (i reckon it sounds like an exhaust'd beemer on full song, sort of a euro sound).
mark at exhaust technology in goodwood did mine.
