Does ANYONE have a convertible with a High Wing Spoiler?

Just wondering if anyone has a convertible with a high wing spoiler? If so, can you please post pictures?
I am contemplating on doing this and can not picture what it looks like.
Thank you.

Not my car, but here you go. I am not a fan of high spoilers on muscle, unless your car goes so fast that no one can say ****.

Hey wait a minute...I took that picture...lol And although that high wing looks great on that T3 edition...it isn't a convertible.

The reason you haven't seen the conversion is because it's not just a simple swap. Since your convertible's radio antennae is contained inside the spoiler...you will need to figure out some way to get it out and into the high wing...not to mention dealing with the wiring and the holes in the deck lid that the current spoiler will leave behind when you remove it. I don't think the high wing will cover the holes but I'm not 100% sure. I didn't want patched holes so I had to buy a new deck lid when I went with an aftermarket rear spoiler.

Your correct Envy, the high wing has different mounting holes than the dovetail spoilers and the high wing will not cover them. They can patch the holes or you can buy a new deck lid (which is what I would do). Other than the antenna on the spoiler I dont know how compatible the high wing is with the vert.

A guy at work has a vert and loves my HWS, but knowing he would have to do something with his spoiler holes has pretty much dissuaded him (my impression) ... I haven't but would like to see a pic of a vert with HWS, if it exists. I haven't seen many HWS at all, but that might be my semi-rural location ... that said, I have not seen any anywhere else, so I think they are pretty unique

I haven't seen any yet. I have the high wing spoiler on my car and I have the original decklid as well.

Didn't one of the convertables have the antenae external? Like a v6 non rs convertable. You would probably have to use that deck lid to put on the high wing spoiler on.

I know about the HWS using different holes than the OEM spoiler and I also know about the antenna. I guess I'll have to try to photoshop it to see what it looks like.
Hey, if anyone is really good at photo-shopping and would like to take a crack at it, I would love to see it.
Thanks.
