    lay it on the boot to get it centred then go against the sri spoiler or so just spoiler just overhangs the boot by 1/2 inc.

    When fitting a spoiler, I place masking tape on the boot in the area I'm going to drill, put the bolts in the spoiler and put lipstick on the end of the bolts (borrowed lipstick you understand lol). When I place the spoiler in position, it leaves a mark on the masking tape where to drill the holes. Hope this helps!

    mask the area of where the bolt's are going as not to scratch the paint work, measure the gap from edge of spoiler to bolt from lip spoiler and take your time, remember measure twice drill once

    hi
    get some masking tape on the boot then flatten some playdoh or like
    flaton on the boot over the tape
    line up spoiler on boot and when happy with where it sits push down firmly
    remove spoiler and you should have the marks in the playdoh where the drill hole should be, mark through the playdoh onto the masking tape with a pencil.
    remove playdoh and drill away in the marks you have just made.

    Go shopping for masking tape, lipstick and Play-Doh (other modelling clays are available).... then start to wonder about the kind of blokes you're asking advice from.....
