Just in the paint wouldn't be a big deal to where it's effecting the structure of this piece I would say. I've read plenty of threads about the factory original units really having bad deterioration issues from moisture. Doesn't sound like that's happening in your case.

How heavy are the originals? You should check out that other thread where the owner is talking about the spoiler. He's thinking of getting an aftermarket unit and using silicone to hold the arms that run up each side of the glass in place. From your experience with the spoiler, is it possible to effectively use silicone to hold the spoiler in place in that location? How many bolts hold that spoiler to the deck lid?

I am unsure as far as holding it in place since mine matches flush well. It is very heavy and I have had to replace the lift struts twice. I have ones with lifetime warranty so that's a good thing
I cant see how many bolts and I am not near the car currently!
