Default Convert Wing ?

My 07 Convert did not come with a wing. I like the look so I checked out a few sites. Before I dive into this, and before I take apart the interior trunk, can anyone tell me if the mounting locations are marked. Being it was a Mopar aftermarket accessory sometimes the locations are there just not drilled open.

The rear top of the hatch wing was a MOPAR part also and the only thing it came with (if you bought it from Chrysler) was a template showing you where to drill holes in the upper part of the hatch. No imprints or exact locations but there were openings in the inside of the hatch to access where the bolts would go thru. They put rubber gourmets where the holes were.

I install a used rear spoiler. There were no mounting locations.
Here is what I did without a temp plate:

I know what you mean MJKnight, the wing makes the hump back look so different. Thanks Crewzin but I believe your pic is for the sedan not the convert, and NJsteve1, I believe your info is also for a sedan. Thanks anyway.

Thanks NJSteve1 for the update. I thought it looked like one from a sedan. Beautiful convert. Where did you get your cowl cover?

Sorry to confuse you the picture that was posted was from a sedan. I was trying to help out on what I did without a template.

Thanks for your reply. I thought your cowl was from LUND. Almost every cool accessory for PTs has dried up. You don't know how lucky you were to find a wing. I have called and email every source, and there isn't any in the whole country, primed or painted. Do you remember how much you paid to get your windows done? I'm over here in PA (just north pf Phila), and they want 200.00.
Does that sound right? Their just 4 little windows.

Been almost 10 years ago but paid $ 160 but there's five if you count the rear window.

I just check the site I bought my used spoiler from There is one listed for $129.00 with a coupon for $25 Off
