Pinning rear spoiler up

Howdy all,

In my weight savings quest, I'd like to remove the motor and hydraulics on the rear spoiler and just pin it in the up position. Is there a non-permanent way to do this?

If so, any help would be great.

thanks.

Golly that's a bizarre thing to do.

Agree. I think it would look really odd. Unless I'm missing something.

Hydraulics? What hydraulics? It is just a small electric motor.

I would assume that Quadcammer is stripping his car down for the track but may want to resell it someday as stock. He needs to be careful because we all know that itís a slippery slope!

That right? I guess I'm used to the crappy hydraulics in my 997tt

precisely. Looks are secondary to losing some more weight.
