How-To Spotlight: Installing a C6 Corvette Spoiler
Do you feel let down by the back of your C6 Corvette? Maybe you are suffering from spoiler envy? It’s time to update your back end.
From the factory, the stock sixth-generation Corvette looked as it does in the above picture. Nothing too fancy when it came to the center mounted brake light. It had been moved slightly after being placed inside the bumper of the C5, and was mounted just above, on the back deck of the C6. It adds a distinctive look to the car. For some people, however, the small spoiler just didn’t, or still doesn’t, feel right. And it is obvious that the design is simply for aesthetics rather than functionality.
