    I took the wing off of my Cobra and need to fill the holes in the trunk. I know I saw a thread where someone was selling homeade caps for them, but I searched for it and couldn't find anything. :mad: Anyone know of a way to patch the decklid without it looking ghetto??

    FWIW, you could also try going to a hardware store. They should carry the caps or plugs that you are looking for. :shrug:

    FWIW=for what it's worth

    I just went to the dealer and got some of the plugs that hold the interior pieces on(the christmas-tree looking things) and used some silicone to hold them in and waterproof things when I had my wing off...

    Pep Boys has them. I bought them there when I took off my spoiler on my 2000 GT. Pack of 5 cost around $2.99.

    The only color I believe they carry is black. That's what I used. I'm not sure if you can paint them or not.I tried to paint them with my touch up paint but the paint just peeled off when I attempted to put them in. Maybe if you scuff them up a bit to give the paint a better surface to stick to. :shrug: I just installed them as is. The black actually looked good with the green my car was. Black may clash a bit with your white. :(

    They have those plugs in white too...just look around at Autozone or even try going to the dealer...They gave me some of those plugs for free, and I know in the parts box they kept them in there were all sorts of colors of them...

    I think you should go to the V6 board and offer to trade a trunk lid with someone who wants the spoiler and has a car that's the same color. Some GT and Cobra +99 owners do the same trade with rear bumbers when installing side exhaust kits.

    Eventually I'll either buy a second deck lid w/no wing from the factory or an S281 wing. This was the $5 alternative, & I still prefer it to the OEM wing.
