Nice! I think it might not be a bad idea to lay some clear vinyl down under both corners of the body to protect the paint from the spoiler. Even if you put pads on the bottom side of the spoiler and small vinyl patches adjacent to the pads on the body they would only be seen when you open the trunk. Any rubbing or vibration issues would be solved. Anyhow it looks pretty good!!! I think it may even help you when you are backing up towards a wall as it looks like it sticks out and probably gives you a better sense of where the bumper cover is. Would like to see a side view( 90 degree).

You can also puts small rubber spacers on the bolt between the trunk lid and the spoiler. That is what I did to mine. It also allows debris to pass through rather than getting stuck under the spoiler. It’s not high enough to see a difference when looking at it though.

Good ideas. But this spoiler has the overhang sections recessed so they don't touch the car after the trunk is latched.

It's a work of art really. Looks amazing. I used silicone around the holes to seal it. They say use 2 washers on each screw to avoid going through the top layer on install. I only used 1 washer and had no issue. With 2 washers there are only a couple threads that will hold it down. I wanted a more solid install.
