Default Going wingless

So I want to go wingless for a bit on my new edge. I like the look it gives it. Any ideas as to how i should go about plugging the holes cheap but effectively? Obviously I'd like it flush but for cheap I'm sure that won't happen. As long as it won't stick way up I think I'd try most anything.

Thanks for any help!

The cheap way is to find some rubber plugs and paint them the color of your car, insert them into the holes left from the spoiler. This allows you to reinstall the spoiler if you wish later on, how ever it doesn't look as good. Permanently filling the holes with body filler and having the entire deck lid refinished is expensive but looks better. You have to decide for your self.

Wouldn't rubber crack after being in the sun for too long? I wonder if they make plastic plugs that would fit in the holes.

Of course it would but depending on the type of rubber it is , your tires take years of out door abuse before they dry and crack. I am not suggesting you do one or the other , but you have to find what works for you. Plastic wont seal well, and you would likely need to put some kind of sealant on them . Youll just have to get creative about it.

If I were you I wouldnt go cheap with this. I've seen some guys around here that didn't spend the extra coin and their cars looks like straight azz. What size tires do you have in the rear?

Don't forget about being a hard top as well. Wingless does not look good on convertibles. Been there, I put it back.
