Did you use double sided tape?

The tape is not needed, would hold it up off the trunk lid and not look right. Like stated, a little RTV sealant around the holes and just snug the bolts down with only 1 washer and you will be golden. You also could add a thin rubber washer between the spoiler and the deck lid for protection from rubbing, unless your trunk lid was like mine when I took the stock one off and the paint was damaged already.

Thank you so much because I almost went with the double sided tape route but I thought wai8 a minute let me ask the guys that have experience in doing this. I post a picture when I get done with it. Thanks again.

No need for that. If you don’t know then ask questions. That’s how you learn. Get that thing installed and share some pictures.

Yep, like I tell people, no question is a dumb question, if you don't know, ask. That is how you learn and add to your knowledge..

Yeah when first put it on I thought it was way to big but now it's growing on me and I got a lot of compliments on it at the car show last night.

Yeah I think I will eventually get a front splitter sooner or later, after I get my bumpers replaced. My front bumper actually split on the freeway the other day at the corner by the fender and the headlight. But I've put in $15k probably more in the last six months. Ouch! But it's all worth it in the end I'm happy but the wife's not. Oh well she'll get over it or I'll be sleeping in the damn thing. 😒
