Yup, tape your paint before you drill :w00t:
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?)


:bellyroll:

Hell yes makes perfect sense.

yes. and it's better if you tape the entire trunk lid and the rear quarter panels as well. Then take a magic marker and draw lines were the body panels meet so you know where those are. Then a red magic marker and color in where your sidemarkers should be. Oh and put and arrow pointing to the back of the car so you know where it's at.

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...

I know there's some good info in here.... in between all the smartassery :sm0:

GTAHVIT 08-09-2011 08:57 PM

Will do. Good idea

Seriously I thinks it's awesome how many smart guys we have on here.

:respekt:

Is it installed yet?

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?

Cool, another broken finger video...

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