If your spoiler holes show evidence of there being some metal for the threads to bite properly, you can either drill new holes nearby (as close as possible) or drill slightly larger holes and use larger screws.

how about when you repair the spoiler with the fiberglass you put a couple of nuts in the resin? once it drys it will be solid as, then just drill the centre out if needed?

i wouldn't reccomend putting the nuts straight into the resin because the resin will probly end up filling in the grooves i would just reccomend if repairing with fibreglass to just drill the holes back
