There's a guy here on this site that makes lots of fiberglass stuff like the hot pants body kits and all.  Not sure if he makes those or not.  Do a search in the forums as I can't remember his name right off the top of my head.  *Went back and checked map351 is his user name.

Map351 does not make the 3 piece spoiler I have asked  already. lol
Finding one used If your lucky is about the only way to get one as of right now. Oh and just to make sure yah know the 3 piece spoiler is for cars with the all glass hatch.
Map does make a single piece spoiler for metal hatch and trunk cars but it doesnt wrap onto the quarter panels like the 3 piece does.

Bigtimmay is right about them fitting the glass hatch but I plan to modify both of mine. One will go on a steel hatch & one on a trunk.
 
For the purists who are cringing at that thought, don't sweat it. Both spoilers I'm using are damaged around the keyhole area anyhow so I'm not ruining any flawless originals.

I've got a 3 piece spoiler on the steel hatch of my '72.  It takes some grinding but it will work.  Perhaps I can post photos of mine later...

Pics would definitely help. I need to know what to use for a repair on one of mine. That isn't fiberglass, it's more like a resin of some sort.
