I've been wanting to take my spoiler off for a while now, but I can't just leave those holes in there. I don't have the money to buy a whole new trunk or take the car to a body shop to fill the holes and repaint it. So do any of you know of any other ways to go wingless? I know there are some aftermarket companies out there who sell plastic plugs to fill the leftover holes in wingless trunks, but I've never seen anything like that for Subies. Any feedback would be great.

Thanks.

I haven't done this but ive heard of somebody doing it for there front license plate holes. They bought those plastic plugs from home depot or lowes. The 'mushroom' ones almost, sort of like the rivits that hold the front bumper on the car. you can get the touch up paint and color those plugs blue, then either hopefully find ones that are the same size as the hole, or file the hole bigger so it fits. once again I haven't done this, only heard of somebody doing it. good luck, hopefully withtin a little bit some of the way more experienced gentlemen on this site will give you better feedback.

Find someone that likes wings and swap parts, including the torsion bars.

Find someone that's an enthusiast and loves "tuner cars" and thus has driven his car into a tree or house or something, and buy the body parts that survive from him/her. Don't forget torsion bars.

Find a company that caters to the enthusiast above, and see if they sell a synthetic body part. It might be glass but it will likely be "carbon." Paint it to match the paint on the car. Again, torsion bars.

Thanks for the help, guys. I'll probably look into the plug method for now. Does anyone have any pictures of this?

How badly do I need to swap torsion bars if I'm removing my spoiler? I know it's not the best long-term method, but would you guys consider that "necessary?"

Not as badly as you need to avoid plugs, but the torsion bars are an issue too.

The torsion bars are much more of an issue if you're adding a spoiler rather than removing one. The only negative to not changing them when you remove the spoiler is the trunk can pop up a bit faster than you expect.
