    Default Mclaren spoiler

    Does anyone have a pic of the Mclaren style spoiler on a Capri? Recently had a reproduction one installed on my Capri during paint and the transition piece from stock trim to wing looks terrible. Just thinking that there has to be a better way and wondering how the "factory" cars have it.

    Zen - Do these help? This was my 86 ASC McLaren I owned. Sold it back in 2010. It was a barrel clip that went over the end of the spoiler and attached to the hatch window trim...if I remember correctly. Mike

    The clip that Hank supplies with his spoiler is more of a squarish shape and doesn't match the shape of trim or the spoiler.
    I would love to be able to post a pic here, but it won't let me.

    Yep, that's the original clip.

    Thanks for confirming that Mike. The car was repainted before I got it so I wasn't sure if they were original or not. Hopefully ZEN50 will see it. What number was your '86 McLaren. It looks really nice.

    It was #89. Really liked the car but it was time to go back then. Would like to have it back now. There are several of those "have backs."
