After market spoiler install, on non RS Camaro's

There has been a few good posts on installing the after market spoilers.

I got mine from ebay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/PAINT...item2a05fa13e9

I have included some pictures as I went thru the project. Total time around an hour. I was in no hurray. Can be done faster for sure.

Pictures along with the included instructions are pretty self explanatory.

Good luck.

Excellant job! Like the extra effort of touching up the bare metal after drilling!

Good effort but what about the stripes now. You've gotta get the spoiler painted with the stripes.

No stripes on my spoiler, going without them. I like to be different. That is why my Camaro build is a one of a kind. No other 2LT with IOM, IO interior and black stripes exist in Michigan yet. There are a few but they have the RS package or sunroof, neither of which I ordered. Unless you know the stripe was on the spoiler (from the factory) you won't miss it.

Thank - you for noticing, I read that as one of the tips. I have a can of IOM factory matching paint so I sprayed a small amount in a cup and brushed two coats on the exposed metal.

Did you use 3m tape when putting it on or did you just bolt it right up?

Is there a gasket of some sort to keep water from getting in around the bolt holes?

No, but that is a GREAT idea. If I should ever take it off, I will add the 3M tape.

Yes, there is a black foam gasket that sticks to the paint surrounding the hole.

I am surprised you did not put a washer under the bolt head to spread out the load on the sheet metal.

I never thought to try and spread the load. I did install a thin lock washer under one to see if that helps keep screw from backing out. I will check again in a couple weeks.

That's a good idea! I just sprayed some interior pieces IOM and some spots got a little nicked up on the re-install. I was gonna buy a tube of touchup, but I think I'll just do this instead.

Some shops don't touch up bare metal like that.

This looks really good. I have a CGM 2LT that I would like to add a spoiler to and this looks like a pretty good solution as I'm not wild about some of the aftermarket spoilers that I have seen. How long did it take to install and did they include the instructions/template to assist?

It took less than 1 hour for the install. The templates can be seen in the photos, they are the white strips of paper. The instructions are easy to follow. You will need a step drill bit, home depot 15 bucks. These are made for drilling holes in sheet metal. If you should have any questions about the install, PLEASE feel free to PM me and I will help you out the best I can.

Thank - you. I love telling the story to people and watching there facial expression that I had the Camaro home for less than 16 hours and was drilling the six holes in the deck lid for the spoiler install.

Ordered my spoiler on May 10th from http://discountcarspoilersdirect.com/camaro/ and never received it still.... called to check the status multiple times and they just gave me the run around... finally they told me today it got messed up in paint and had to go back in.... so I canceled the order and ordered the same one you got from your Ebay listing http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/PAINT...item2a05fa13e9 .... about how long did it take you to receive your spoiler after ordering? Did they have them in stock painted already or did you have to wait a few days for them to paint it before it even shipped? I need it by the end of next week at the latest....

I just got my wing from ebay. I will be installing tommorow. I have to say I am a little nervous about drilling into my car.

I ordered the wing on May 20th late and they contacted me the next morning for the paint code. I just got it today and the paint matches perfect.
