I'll have to try mine to see what kind of hassle it is... what I really want is to track down a rear wing. I've always thought they really set it off.

Okay. Here's how I got mine.

I went to this eBay auction and made a "Make Offer" bid. The asking price is $465.30. I got mine for a couple of hundred less than that. This specific one will come painted silver.

NOS OEM CHRYSLER SPOILER 82208625 | eBay

I searched for months and made many phone calls. This is the best deal I could find. That's still expensive, but it really makes the PT convertible look nice.

First... Sorry for stomping on the thread!

Second... I did get the wing, Handy gave me some additional info and it's on it's way...

Third... My wheels are the same as the silver PT on the first page of this thread, and it is obvious mine have not been polished since... ever. I'm adding that to the list of projects that I'm currently working on.

Retail sell would go better with one.

He's right.

Even though my PT didn't come with one from the factory, it will still help when I sell it. Customers are more likely to believe "everything is there". This applies to the owner's manual as well, to a lesser degree.

I use mine once in a while. Usually when I know I'll be on a long drive and won't put the top up until I get home. Looks nice takes a few minutes to install and looks sharp

After having the car a year, I finally tried mine this past weekend. Now that I know how it goes, it will only take 2-3 minutes to do, but as mentioned above, I'd have to be committed to leaving the top down for a good part of the day. Does look a lot nicer than without. It's nice to have the option, I'm not convinced I'll do it often...

So far, I've never used the one I bought. Wasted money, I guess.
