    Default Spoiler came halfway off

    I absentmindedly tried to pull the trunk open by pulling on the spoiler yesterday. One end popped loose. It snapped back down after a quick "Son of a... gun!!" I had to remind myself that my two little girls were getting in the back seat at the time. Am I on borrowed time before it flies off on the highway? Is there a fix I should look into?

    Just noticed this, but 3M double sided tape will help keep it in check.

    When mine came off, I went to the Chevy dealer and asked about refinishing / replacement. The guy I talked to used to work at one of the local car washes, and he said they tend to peel them off with repeated washes.
