I really like the look of the plumley mod spoiler. I would pay someone to mod a spoiler I have. Interested??
When you remove the center stanchion, you'll have to extend the wiring. After the ends are cut, you can push the wiring down through the ends to the passenger side. Finally, when you move the spoiler back, you're going to have an unused hole under the spoiler. Measure and drill a hole in the base of the spoiler to route your wire down and into the trunk. Use a rubber grommet to keep the wire from vibrating and rubbing the insulation off. Now drill a small hole in the raised cross bracing in the trunk lid and you should be able to push it outfrom under the cross bracing and making your connection that way.toymdngn said:i would love to mod my 89 led spoiler, but i still what the led brake light to work, how do i go about rewiring the spoiler so that the brake light will still work? do i have to cut open the spoiler to re-route the wiring?
Don't know...I'm always too busy paying attention to my driving to watch the rear spoiler. :smile:SenorCuervoAW11 said:I am just curious, does the modded spoiler flex under high speeds? I thought that was the reason why the center stanchion was there.
i find that the fact that you state that even with an unfinished Plumley mod your spoiler doesn't flex. i mean, no foam or fibreglass there?!?!? i'm calling BS on this one! :bsflag:TomsMR2 said:i removed the center stanchion and put some tape over it (yes, ghetto). i didnt complete the plumley mod, but i never had any problems at all without the center piece.. it looks MUCH better without the center..
if you're terribly concerned about wobblies, you could fill the spoiler with high density structural foam of a light weight.. i dont think its really an issue tho.
it doesnt flex enough to crack in my case.. its been about 3 years now and im pretty sure it hasnt cracked.. even after my friend sat right in the middle and gave it a pretty mean flex. lu owns the car now and is on the board, if he sees this im sure he'll attest to it holding up. ive been triple digits with the spoiler as well.ToyotaTechGeek said:i find that the fact that you state that even with an unfinished Plumley mod your spoiler doesn't flex. i mean, no foa or fibreglass there?!?!? i'm calling BS on this one! :bsflag:
you must not be reaching any speeds above 'normal' city driving speeds (read: 45mph>) even the sides will flex under the duress placed upon the spoiler and eventually crack the fibreglass if it's not properly done. hell, one that is properly done will crack eventually. i've seen it. that's why i made changes on the second evolution of my spoiler.
