I put on a new hellcat hood and next thing up is to replace the car stripes, well I take off the stripes , problem is the trunk someone did some kind of repair and re clear coated up to the stripe. So now I have a paint lip running up the trunk so I talk to my painter guy , he said remove the spoiler and I'll fix the trunk , so I remove the spoiler , what I find under the spoiler is all kinds of rub ,wear marks from the bottom of the spoiler. , it has no foam tape around the outside edge so it's been rubbing to the point where it's down to bar metal in places , my questions are: isn't there supposed to be a foam strip all around the outside edge? If so how wide and thick is it supposed to be ? And where can I buy it? And then also where can I get the 4 double sided strips that hold the middle of the spoiler down? And how thick are those? If anyone has pics of this foam please post ! Thanks for any help !

That’s normal. They foam they used was very tin around the edges. You can get 3M double sided tapes from any hardware store.

Thanks , mine had zero foam on it. Maybe it's been replaced once before and they took it all off ! Thanks for the pointers and the pic of yours!

Well I got the car out of paint jail on Friday and was able to get her put back together. Glad I had it fixed right. ImageUploadedByAutoGuide1523238612.908944.jpg .

Thanks guys , I can't tell you how I felt after I took off the stripes to see that clear coat run up to the stripe and then the discoloration that you couldn't see with the stripe there. And then I took off the spoiler and that looked even worse , very happy now tho!
