Nascar style spoiler

In my search for a lip spoiler for my bird, I ran across a company that actually makes Nascar body parts and made a call. Turns out that they have a one- piece aluminum spoiler in the inventory that is a left over from the 96 T-bird body style. It is curved to follow the lines of the deck lid as well. Would it be worth looking into or not? The sales guy said I could snag it dirt cheap considering how long it has been sitting in the inventory. Your thoughts?

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

That's what I was worried about. I wonder if I could modify it and knock the degrees down a bit to avoid that? With it being one piece that is shaped to the contour of the back end, I'm not sure how easily that would be accomplished. I mean heck, the spoiler is only $15, lol... Thought maybe it might be worth a shot. Cheaper than a Xenon lip spoiler.

look at it this way, the gas mileage on our cars sucks already, and it's only $15. If you get it and really don't like it, you can sell it for $20 on here and make $5 to make up for the lost gas mileage

That's what I was thinking. Besides, if all else fails, I can throw it on ebay I guess. If I do use it, the gas mileage may not be an issue, as it's not going to be a daily driver anymore.
