Adding rear spoiler to 2004 wagon...
I recently purchased a really clean 2004 wagon and want to add a factory spoiler to the rear. I’ve read many of the posts here about the process and in my search for the actual spoiler locally (there’s one on its own and one that I’d need to pull from a wrecker - both of these would need to be painted to match my car), or I can spend a lot more and buy an entire liftgate from someone parting out their car (this one is conveniently already a color match).
My question for those who have done this is; my car without the spoiler has the body colored cap at the top of the liftgate. I’ve found a picture of a wagon with the spoiler removed that has a slightly different shaped cap (picture attached).
Is the notch circled in the cap necessary for the spoiler to fit properly? The cap on any wagons I’ve seen without the spoiler, including mine, are simply round corners.
If it’s not an issue, I’ll go the cheaper route and buy one of the spoilers on its own (and create a template from the liftgate once the spoiler is removed). If it is an issue I’ll just swap out the entire liftgate - the trade off being more money for less headache.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
