That's a damn good idea! Spoilers are cheap due to the rice/market saturation, just adjust the height so you don't go past 15 degrees, and the entire thing has to slide into/out of place and secure easily. But I think it could be done.

I haven't really thought this thru other than looking at the picture. So my question is this, would it create a blind spot?
In the picture above, yes (that is exactly what my co-worker said). But the sides could be plexiglass too, and I think a well made boattail, by definition, will have to address the issue of a blind spot. If I had the above installed, I would go with panoramic rear view mirrors and the 3 inch convex fish eye mirrors (I already use these on my normal SW2).
This would be another form of the blind spot issue, along with the threads dealing with removing the side view mirrors (what a drag!).
Wait 'til you drive through rain and the whole thing get filthy. How will you reach in there to clean the windows?
From what I have seen of other boattails on the other threads, the "back" appears to be open. A stick with a mop or a squeegee at the end would be helpful, assuming you are standing behind the car in a parking lot. If it were a really good design with good seals, not much rain would "get inside". However, I agree that there is a likelihood that it would be high maintenance.
