Just wondering what the diff is between repro fibreglass and genuine - the genuine ones wouldnt be alloy would they?

The genuine article bolts to the quarters and deck lid, most after market are held on by fiberglass. I dont know if the cobra type was reproduced. Be aware that these spoilers arnot Cobra only. They were also fited as an option to XC GS Falcon 500 and XC Fairmonts as an option. My XC Fairmont has one.

Ok thats cool - thanks for that.

GT ford performance have a listing of both genuine and repro but no pics of either - the ones I have are fibreglass with steel/alloy holding brackets/bolts.

Cheers, Cheyne
