    Default New wheels and VXR spoiler fitted today

    Been a busy old day got the SRi spoiler off and fitted the new VXR spoiler and then fitted the new ACE wheels and re-painted the calipers

    Will post some pics if I work it out!

    Do a search for VXR Spoiler and you will find the full procedure i used to fit mine. Its dead simple to do.

    Simple to do mate

    Offer the spoiler upto the boot.
    Fix it with a couple bits of tape
    Rip of 6 bits of masking tape for the top and bottom around 2" long. Place these along the edge of the spoiler at various spaces making sure you do the ends.
    Remove the spoiler
    You now have equal spaced out bits of tape were the leading edges of the spoiler was.
    10-15mm INWARDS from those bits of tape place a dollop of tiger seal on both faces of the boot
    Take all the tape off the spoiler from the sticky tape
    Fit it on and press it down and tape into place removing any excess glue with white spirit

    I left mine a day to dry and then ran a silcone bead around the whole spoiler and wipe of any excess with baby wipes

    A lot of people cover the spoiler in glue this is a total waste of time as a spoiler never has 100% contact with the boot unless it is a little lip spoiler. Normally its just the leading faces like the VXR

    Just realised your in Ipswich if you get stuck I'm only in Norwich always welcome to pop over and I'll give you a hand
