Thinking of a new spoiler? You need to see this!

Ok, so I ran into a little problem installing my new RKsport Spoiler. Underneath the factory spoiler was what I would call major damage to the paint. But the bigger problem is the new spoiler is not as deep as the factory on the trunk so it won't cover up the damaged area. (See last pic) Looks like I will have to get the entire trunk repainted.

There's a TSB for that. Take it to the dealer.

When we did R&D on Deron's Camaro " legends" We pulled of his Stock spoiler and it did the same thing, but not on top, only where the edge was some. I think the dealer should also cover that, paint shouldn't just peel like that.

we do have a new 3 piece spoiler, i will measure it and see if it will clear that portion for you

You may have to put the original spoiler back on, but those of us who had loose spoilers had paint issues. My dealer repaired it free of charge to me. I would certainly go that route before I paid for having it painted myself.

I was wondering if I should or not. They may not fix it if they knew I removed it?

Bummer! That sucks. I had my spoiler off last week removing my stripes, no issues with the paint. I feel lucky after seeing yours. Good luck with everything.

I don't know how bad the damage is on mine, but I can see a little peeling around the edge on the right side. Is there anyway I can get this gasket set sent to me, my local bodyshop, or my dealer and just do it myself? Or do you have to pay for it?

Thanks guys. I just wanted to put it out there so if there's anyone else like me who was thinking that the install would be easy would know what to be prepared for.

I did not have one paint chip on my trunk when I installed my RKSport spoiler

That is exactly what was happening with mine. If you want, you can open the trunk and pull the plugs (4 visible, 2 on either side) and see if the nuts are loose. If they are, I would leave them and drive to the dealer and explain the nuts on the spoiler came loose causing it to ruin the paint on the trunk lid.

It did take a couple of days for mine, but they covered it, painted the trunk lid and did the update. If it goes into the stripe area, I'm sure they will get you new stripes as well. If you have stripes.

Just got off the phone with a local dealer and they are going to repaint the decklid and GM will give me a loaner car during the process. That is part of the TSB. I opted out of them puting the factory spoiler back on because I am adding the RKsport and he said that was ok with him.

Glad to hear everything worked out for you, it was the right thing for them to do, and good luck with your new spoiler.

I have a similar situation (kinda).

I installed a factory spoiler on mine, no issues. A month later, I hade custom stripes painted on which required them to remove the spoiler. Anyway, I have similar pait wear coming up on both ends now. I assumed it must have been my paint guy's fault but maybe not?

At any rate, I'm probably not covered by the TSB because of the mods, right?

This is EXACTLY what my problem is. I think I'll just repaint it myself (I work at the body shop where my stripes were painted on) and get the gromit kit from the dealer, or come up with something.
