installing anvil spoiler on LS

hey guys, i just need a little help. I have taken off the plastic circular things in the trunk but the trunk latch cover is not off yet. Is there some kind of trick to get the trunk latch cover off so i can remove the carpet to get to the holes i need to drill into. Thanks!

It should pull straight off. You might use something to pry it off.

Does the anvil use the same hole locations as stock?

Well on my stock spoilers I only drilled 4 holes. I know you're supposed to drill 6 but i didn't do the ones under the carpet. I just did the 4 under the rubber grommets. I've had it on for over 2 years in some brutal weather conditions and never a problem

Cover the deck with blue painters tape, that way you can mark the hole locations, and the chips don't land on your paint. Also have a shop vac ready to suck up the small chips. Don't wipe them away.

The trunk latch cover just pulls off.

Take your time and enjoy I love my Anvil..

Does anyone know how to fill in holes? I have an LS so i had to drill them myself and I messed up by a couple centimeters and need to have it redone. I think i am going to bring it to the dealership and see if they can do it. I am not worried about them visibly because they will still be under my spoiler, but i am worried about filling them so water does not get into the trunk. Does anyone have any advice? Im so stressed out over this.

I think you can get a template from the dealer. As it will be the same as the Anvil..

Filling them might need a re-paint..

Do you think there is a way to just seal them to avoid water getting in? The dealership was giving me a hard time about everything. I dont know how many of the holes if any are in the right spot sooo... i also wont be able to see the holes so its not a big deal. Just want to make sure water doesnt get in. Thanks!

The holes are marked from the factory on the underside of the trunk. It may be easier to get a new trunk of the same color from a wrecking yard.

Do i just ask the dealership if they have one and how much will it cost? but if not..should they be able to seal the holes that are not used? I have never had an experience with this. The holes are the size of a pencil basically.
