Looking to replace front spoiler on my 71 Mach1. The old spoiler I installed back in the 80's had slotted holes that allow for adjustment when installing. Any help would be appreciated.

Arizona car, 1973 Mach-1, Still has its original 351 Cleveland engine and its original C-6 trans, All original body panels, most of original paint. Interior is restored.
I got the same one as Tony-muscle, and it fits fine.
Actually, The one I have now is the second, because the first one I installed, I scraped off on a parking bumper. This one, I re-enforced the mounting screw area with a metal strip under the spoiler attachment area.

Good idea to reinforce the mounting area. It is kind of weak, but on the other hand it would prevent the next piece to brake.

My all time favorite vehicle is our 1969 Shelby GT500
I acquired our front spoiler from CJ Pony Parts a few years ago. It was easy to install. I used C-clamps to hold it in place as I drilled the pilot holes for the self drilling.tapping hex headed screws I purchased from Home Depot, vs using the sheet metal screws that were included in the spoiler kit. I dare say it turned out really nicely. We did not video record the actual installation, but I do have an after-the-fact video that shows some details I felt were worth sharing. I also took some photos - attached FWIW. The one video I put together is at the following YouTube site:
