    Can anyone tell me where I can get the seals for a grabber trunk spoiler and if the bell shaped clips that hold the spoiler down to the trunk are available? Screenshot_20210205-074855_Gmail.jpg

    The "seals" are just sealant applied before the spoiler was installed.

    What I took off looked just like the 3m strip caulk that we used around the gas tank to body flange on the 1970 Maverick. Might need a good bit to seal up the holes, but it's doable.

    Craig,
    Any suggestion on what to use for the sealant or is it needed?

    It is needed or you will get water in your trunk. I don't recall off hand what I used. I got it at an auto body supply store. It might have been butyl or some other type of body sealant.
