If you are an owner of a 1991-94 Mercury Capri (only 10,000 remain in the USA), odds are that you want to add a rear spoiler for that "racy" look. When the cars were made, only the XR2 turbo models came with them (there are even fewer of these out of the 66,000 ever made). The 1991-93 model XR2's have a different spoiler than the 94 XR2, the last year they made it and only 366 at that!

Many owners of the 91-93, want the 94 spoiler with its built in LED back light (the earlier versions do not have it built in) and more flush look. The sell for between $200-300, when you can find them. The earlier model spoilers are easily found and are much cheaper.

Converting from an early version to a later version is simply a matter of removing a total of six bolts and the separate brake light from the rear deck. The holes left by the early version cannot be used to install the 94 spoiler, they are completely different. At this stage, you choice is to mock set the new spoiler onto the deck and mark the holes that will need to be drilled. This can be a bit tricky. The easier method is to use special 3M automotive tape called, Acrylic Plus Tape #PT1100, which is double coated on both sides. Costs range from $12-30, depending on its length. This tape is used to attach car moldings, so it will not come off easily once attached.

Remove any studs from the spoiler. Cut out a inch long section of tape and attach it to each of the hole location on the back spoiler. Use a long strip along the backside of the spoiler (the part facing the rear window). You can also add strips along other edges, if desired. Attached the wiring connectors.

When ready, carefully and evenly attached the spoiler onto the deck with the front placed first (the part facing the rear of the car, not the part facing the rear window). Once done, carefully set the set the spoiler onto the deck and press.

You have one shot to do it right. Once attached, it will be very difficult to straighten, line-up or tweak! The most critical aspect is centering it.
