    Default Fitting spoiler

    So I fitted my spoiler with bonding resin and within 1 day it was nearly falling off. SO now I am going to use bolts. Can anyone recommend what bolts to use and how to remove the felt stuff on the underside of the boot lid? It's an Irscher spoiler pic here:

    Thats either a copy or a vec B spoiler isn't it?

    The genuine irmy one is bolted on the seams of the bootlid. There is sealer on the seem that has to be cut so the bolt sits flush(er)

    Argh I looked underneith where the drill holes will come through and it is not as simple as I thought. There is the welded bit underneith that makes the boot shape that blocks where to holes come through. I pulled back the cover and there is a small hole and I reckon I can get my hands in to put the bolt through but it will be a nightmare to try tighten them. Anyone else experienced this?

    it will hold but any little tw*t can walk up to it and rip it off without causing too much damage i did research and tigerseal is one of the best to use once its on its not coming off in one piece.
