Hi all. Just wanted to know if the Ford logo and/or part number is always stamped on the inside of body parts only I recently acquired a rear spoiler which I has told was purchased from a Ford dealer about 15 years ago but when I received it, there was nothing in printed. It came in a yellow colour which i was told was primer, unlike the standard grey colour you get on new bumpers, skirts etc and was only in a plastic bag with a printed label just stating Ford Escort Spoiler, not the usual you get on parts. It also had 2 pre-drilled holes on each of the three mounting areas but when came fitted as standard, were they screwed or were they bonded on with adhesive and seals to stop water getting underneath? As usual any help is much appreciated. Cheers again:-)

Doesnt sound like a genuine to me. They were screwed on with 8 bolts total and a flimsy piece of felt was supposed to keep the water out lol

Ever noticed that putting "anal" in front of some ford model names makes them sound funny? Fiesta, Probe, Ranger. Explorer, Maverick etc... lol

sounds to be most certainly a replica spoiler.

 

Mk6 spoilers are always secured with part mounted bolts which were generally set into the spoiler body during the abs plastic casting process (replica's are also nearly always fibreglass)

 

another good indicator is the yellow "primer" colour you mentioned which I suspect is likely the colour of gelcoat the maker used to finish the fibreglass part (Ive never understood why but generally replica's Ive came across for various body parts are nearly always finished in a yellow gelcoat...... maybe its the cheapest version :huh: )

any monkey can buy and bolt on.... an individual creates
!
you have to really ask yourself something when you consider trying to insult me.. do I really seem like the type of person who gives a flying shite covered monkey F*ck about your pointless comment?.. I'll save your deminished intellect the struggle..that'd be a "No"
Anything can be made to fit.... thats what hammers are for silly!
All posts are the view of the writer and not necessarily that of..... actually no, I dont really give a flying flame toasted turd, dont read my posts if you dont like em R-tard.
no one can accuse me of being "two-faced", Ill call you a nob behind your back and to your face... the latter preferably so I can watch you uselessly blow your lid
being directly honest with your opinion may not make you well liked but it will get you appreciated by the worthwhile few with the sense to understand.... Id rather be appreciated for who I am than liked for what I'm not.
