Default Replacing the spoiler curtain

I finally got around to replacing my spoiler curtain the other day.
I've been putting it off, because I really didn't want to take the spoiler apart and off as described on P-Car. I just started poking around to see how the old, split curtain piece(s) were attached and how they come off. I got the old one off in about 5 minutes



Raise the spoiler to the top. lower for 2 seconds.

The lower section (2) snaps on/off a metal bar on the spoiler. (2a),
and also has a pin (1&1a) a little higher holding it into place. Can't see it here, it's on the inside of the vertical metal piece.
The top part of the curtain (3) just snaps on to the top of the spoiler (3a),
Bottom picture is the cross section of how it snaps onto the top ledge. It has a tooth or barb on the bottom that passes over a sheet metal edge on the ledge and snaps on.

Once I got a corner of the top on, I worked the rest of it on from above, pushing/sliding the curtain onto 'the ledge' underneath the spoiler. At the same time I was pushing back with my other hand on the outside edge of the spoiler with a micro cloth so there was no movement of the spoiler as I was attaching the top.

To install:

Hook (1) around (1a) on both sides.
Snap (2) onto (2a) and work it on the entire bottom length.
Snap the corner of (3) onto (3a) and work it onto the ledge the entire length of the spoiler.

The part number is 993-512-121-00. You can order it from your favorite vendors who carry OEM parts including Sunset, Pelican, EBS Racing, etc.

It's a ~$100 part, depending on where you buy it.
