Feel free to keep checking on me. :respekt:


But we should probably do more of that in Randy's threads. He only has so many fingers. :D

I noticed his smiley just has one left :D

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?)

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.

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...

Mr Twisty 08-09-2011 08:54 PM

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:

Darth_Emma 08-09-2011 09:03 PM

Is it installed yet?

garcmol 08-09-2011 09:04 PM

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?

What does the third brake light on the spoiler wire into? Does it jump off the light in the rear window?

Nope, it just sits there waiting for the power to light up...

Yes it is wired into the same circuit...

Well, you know if you stare at something long enough it will actually do what your thinking. And if it didn't do it, you didn't stare long enough. :thumbsup:
