Shelby Spolier

On the rear spoiler on a Shelby Charger, should there be any water drain holes at the bottom? The back end of mine was sitting out of the carport and after a rain I opened the hatch and seems like the spoiler was full of water and it ran back out all over the place.

Re: Shelby Spolier

nope
what you see is what you get

you would love backing up a t top daytona out of a driveway with a culvert hump at the end

back end raises , t top tilts
water on top runs to the front where it finds the gap in the trim at the front outer corner
then dribbles onto the mirror/lock switch plate and your arm...

Yes, there are several plastic caps directly below the spoiler bolt locations on the hatch.
You can remove these and keep them off if the cars going to sit for a while in a rainy season.
Otherwise, remove excess water from the spoiler first, then slowly raise the hatch a little at a time.
Do this until all the water drains out.

Re: Shelby Spolier

remove spoiler

wash everything - it's gonna be filthy under there

apply tape to bottom run of rubber window seal - right to bottom edge

apply silicone to spoiler mounts and all the way along the front edge

reinstall wipe excess silicone at front of spoiler and remove tape

I would suspect that if you're getting a large mass of water from in under the spoiler there probably a "dam" of 30 years accumulation of dirt and filth that prevents anything from draining .. not that there's any real provision for that - the top "spoon" like depression of the spoilers ALWAYS fill with standing water that can't drain away
