Install High Wing Spoiler, no drilling

Hi i was wondering if anybody installed or knows how to install a High wing spoiler without drilling or altering the trunk in anyway. I currently have the stock spoiler on my 2013 LS and would like to put this spoiler on

Yeah, just some Elmer's glue and some clamps should do it. You might have to re-attach it a few times a week but that's the only way I know how to install a high wing with no holes.

In all seriousness, I have this same high wing on my car, looks awesome by the way, but there is really no way to do it without the holes. The instructions, template and mounting are a breeze. I installed mine on my own, no problems whatsoever. Just medium mechanical skills, a drill, hole saw etc and your good to go.

Here's a link to my car with the spoiler on. Well you can kind of see it. But it's there.

If you have the stock spoiler now, you will have to fill those holes.

Try to find someone with a LS and swap trunk lids.

^^ What he said. I had to order a non-spoiler trunk lid before I did mine. Unfortunately for me it got damaged during shipment so it had to go to the body shop anyway and get fixed and repainted. Let's just say GM had no plans of the stock spoiler ever coming off. It's very light and made out of composite or plastic but it's attached with 7 holes. Yes SEVEN holes. Some of them are square and large. It would have cost more to fill the holes and paint it then to find a same color non-spoiler trunk lid. Good luck!

really a trunk swap? these holes pretty much stay hidden. you can plug the ones you dont use with plastic rivets and and spray paint to match them

There are seven holes. Some are square. Be hard to cover with rivets or silicone. Bodywork and paint cost more than a swapped lid. Go the swap trunk route. It's cheaper, and will look MUCH better.

Easier said than done, I've been trying to find someone to trade trunks with for weeks now.
