    Be brave grasshopper, I'm sure they come with a drill guide, and if not use some paint on the underside where the holes will be and it will leave the paint on the boot where you need to drill.

    My spoiler came with 2 plastic guides that inserted into the bolt holes of the spoiler and then you offer it onto the boot.You then line up the spoiler and mark the position.Remove the spoiler and fit the two guides to the boot using the adhesive pads.There is then a tunnel in the guide that you drill down into the boot.That way the drill hole is perfect and the drill bit doesn't wander.

    I got my spoiler from here.

    product code:-6SP01.OP20581

    And looks like this when fitted:-

    Its been stated that they have guides but if they didnt, I would use snowpake instead of paint on the bottom so it would leave a snowpake mark as to where the holes go, instead of a paint mark. Snowpake is easily removed if things go wrong. I have used this for years when marking where things are to be drilled.

    hi
    dont use the guide when i did mine the holes have to be spot on
    get some masking tape and stick to the both end of the hatch
    get some play-dough roll it flat and place over the tape
    hold the rear wing spoiler over the area where you want it to sit
    and press down firmly
    take off and you should have the indents in the play-dough where the bolts go. push a pencil through the indents and mark them through the dough onto the masking tape then drill away.
    perfect holes in the right place and no errors

    thats what i did and a perfect fit.

    I didn't drill mine, just used some adhesive from Wayside Adhesives and its work really well. Fitted in January and held in place with some duck tape for a day and night and all done. I also used the same adhesive to fit my roof spoiler and that sticks to glass and touch wood everything ok.
    I didn't have the nerve to drill my tailgate
