Default ('91 Integra) On the way to get the brakes fixed the spoiler fell off muhahahahaha

Well, not quite.
I've fixed several rust spots (fixed, not made them look nice). Alas,
they're getting ahead of me. Still waitin' on the biological modified
sheet metal/ DNA material that would heal itself. Dings would pop out
themselves. Or, transparent aluminum (Star Trek?). OK I'm watching too
many Industrial Light & Magic shows.
So I'm about to take my '91 Integra to a mechanic to do front brakes
and I check to see what's in the trunk. The trunk lock doesn't work
anymore, but the cable release still does. I pull it, then head round
back and push up on the spoiler (GS) and it pulls out of the trunk lid.
What a sinking cheesy feeling. #@**!!~!!ing! chemical termites at work
again. Come out and chew like a man dammit! With yer mouth open! I
guess I figured out how water is getting in to underneath the back seat
(see post of a couple of months ago). I popped it loosely back in to
it's rusted out hole, bungeed it down and dropped it off . I mention to
Bob if he could come up with a trunk lid that would be cool. Black
would be gravy. More later.....

Take the pics and email them to me. Contact info is on the site. My mailbox
is pretty big, so don't worry about attachment size.

Some details would be nice. History, special problems you've encountered,
that sort of thing. Pics especially of the worst of the rust would be a
nice house-of-horrors sort of thing.
I'd use your Usenet screen name for your entry.

My daughter is taking the GS to Minneapolis for a 'Metal' festival this
weekend from here, Indianapolis. If I remember I'll take/send some
pictures when she returns.
I see your LS looks like mine w/o the spoiler. I see you also are
going w/o the twin pipe chrome like I am. Looks kinda cheesy don't ya
think? I have the original chome port, but the screws are pretty
corroded. I've used some of those cheap aftermarket screw on pipes, but
they either fall off, or contribute to electrlytic rusting of the
muffler pipes. Cheers

Mine is an RS, the cheapie model. In Canada in '91, the RS was available
with a spoiler as a dealer-added option. This is one source of the "new
old-stock OEM hatch struts" you sometimes find on eBay.

The Acura dealer received kits consisting of the spoiler, a template, a
drill bit, and a set of stronger struts. When an RS purchaser requested the
spoiler option, the existing brand-new struts were replaced with the
stronger ones, then stuck somewhere for storage. I bought one of those sets
two years ago off eBay.

LS's and GS's came standard with the spoiler up here.

My original tips and tailpipes fell off after three years. The stainless
tips hold moisture, so you get tons of rust on the tailpipes.

Yes it looks much less finished than they do with the tips, but I'd rather
have intact tailpipes than pretty tips. The exhaust is all OEM, and the OEM
tips were a whopping $25 each, an added incentive NOT to buy them.

i found lots of those struts at e-bay after you mentioned it. I'm on my
second failed pair (dealer). So most of those available on e-bay may
not support a hatch with spoiler? Probably won't repair spoiler. Ilike
it better w/o one. Cheers
