    I'm currently removing my low rise spoiler to install a turbo spoiler and I've run into a small snag. I bought round 5/16" rubber plugs to fill the holes but I didn't realize some of the holes were square or rectangular as well. Does anyone know where to buy these plugs?

    I've gone to junkyards and popped off firewall plugs and they fit OEM spoiler holes perfectly just depending on size needed

    Any specific cars to look for or are they somewhat universal?

    IMG_3889.JPG Kinda cheesy but when I had my evo and took offf the spoiler I just bought some painted stickers to go over the holes from eBay. Couldn't notice them from far away

    I would just measure the diameter of the hole with a micrometer and look online for a plug that fits it.

    I always used Honda plugs because there is literally 10-12 different sizes.

    I usually just use random plugs I have laying around , mostly miscellaneous ones from part outs till I got it welded and painted on my evo, also used vinyl too

    I wish there was another easy option rather than the plastic/rubber plugs. I don't like them at all. I always told myself if I removed the spoiler I would weld in plugs and then wrap/paint the trunk to match the rest of the car. A lot more work though..

    Yea this is just a temporary fix, my original plan was to get the spoiler around the time I wanted to paint the car but then I got a great deal on the spoiler that I couldn't pass up before I was ready to paint so I'm just going to have the body shop weld the holes before I have the car painted.
