    So the kit's spoiler is a little worse for wear many cracks found a tool on Amazon to melt staples into the cracks works awesome nice and sturdy now a little epoxy primer and paint as good as new IMG_20210119_205406888.jpg IMG_20210119_205310572.jpg IMG_20210119_205258877.jpg IMG_20210119_205254074.jpg
