you need to look at wilfried ritz fiat 500 center site, cant remember the address! he listed a few spoilers and there was one that went on the lid.

thanks for the info,i've checked the site out,but there is nothing on there that fits the bill for me..i'll keep looking,someone suggested a MK1 XR2 one,but i cant picture it,apparently they had a spoiler/rubber lip that ran along the tailgate just under the wiper arm.im only really looking to camoflage the join thats going to be there.
