Interested in methods for removing spoiler without damnaging paint. A seach came up with one method, fishing line and WD40. Any others with experience removing and what effect the epoxy had on paint finish?

Thanks for any help.

I just removed mine the other day with a heat gun and some fishing line so I could add my new Rieger trunk spoiler. Worked great and didn't harm the paint one bit.

+1 I removed my spoiler to instal my ac schnitzer one. I didnt even use a heat gun. I basically used a fishing line and went back and forth with it while pulling up on the fishing line (to avoid paint damage). There was some tape left over i bascally rolled the tape off with my thumb and used goo gone to get rid of the sticky film it left behind.

Thanks for the responses. Ended up having body shop do it and they used heat gun and it came right off.

Only thing is it looks like a clearcoat line along spoiler where it appears clearcoat was sprayed after the spoiler was installed. Anybody else experience this?

Body shop thinks it can be wet sanded and buffed.

Can we see a picture of your new spoiler?
