Yup, tape your paint before you drill
Can also use it to outline where it's gonna go, if it accidentally moves on you it won't scratch your paint. (did that make sense?)


Hell yes makes perfect sense.

Best of luck. You can do this.
Thanks Norm!

Chris, in all honesty, having fit one of those spoilers, make sure you have plenty of light when your trying to fit the template... I had to try several times to get it to line up correctly... 3/4 inch masking tape worked well... and I left a little tab on each piece so I could easily pull a piece up and reposition it...

Okay, a real tip. Once you've masked and drilled remove the tape. Then take blue painters tape and reposition over the hole you drilled and make it about 8" long. Make the tabs on both ends of the tape. Put your spoiler in position and poke the spoiler bolts through the holes. Once it's in then pull the tabs on both ends and it will easily remove and tear where the bolt is. No bolt rubbing your paint.

Before you mount the spoiler, take some touch up paint on a qtip and cover the bare metal.

how's that one?

I think you just can't find a magic marker in the house.
