    Default Attaching the spoiler. Any last minute advice.

    About to fit an XP spoiler onto the motor.

    I've got the bonding kit that came with it but the instructions are pictures and symbols.

    One has a picture of the bonding being applied to the Spoiler and then a sign which shows 10 minutes.

    Does this mean wait 10 minutes before sticking it to the car or it must be fitted within in 10 minutes?

    Any other tips gratefully received.

    the bonding kit i gave you steve is the irmscher 1 and its
    stronger than any other,you don`t need to wait the 10 mins
    you can fit it straight away soon as you apply the bond to the
    spoiler,maybe that 10 mins only applies to the vxl bonding kit thats
    listed for the spoiler in the price list as it may not me as gud as the
    irmscher bonding kit.

    Right Andy,

    I didn't realise it was the Irmscher bonding kit
    That answers the question.

    Cheers mate.

    (thanks Veccy c gsi for the advice )

    Old tip but so true.... measure twice - cut once.

    or in this case stick once

    hi steve

    don`t worry it will stick especially with the irmy boding,did you
    make sure the ends were fixed down and using masking tape to
    secure its position.
