How to: installing zx4 OEM spoiler

This is my first attempt at a how to, hopefully it will be helpful to someone not sure what to do. I'm not sure this is the right place, but it seemed most suitable.

Required: Phillips screwdriver, masking tape, rust protection primer, drill, 3/8(2mm) and 17/32(6.5mm) drill bits, magnet.



Step 1:

If you've ordered brand new or used... You will need a stencil for best results. Below the stencils came with the spoiler, but if you need to make one. Get a piece of paper, tape it to the bottom or the spoiler, under the two holes, poke a hole in each place where the screw, screws in. Once you have done that, set the spoiler on the trunk; align, center, and adjust to the right location. Once you get it where you need it, tape the paper down and gently pull the spoiler from the paper it is taped to.





Step 2:

Begin by putting a piece of tape over the stencil hole and marking it, this will prevent your bit from going all over your trunk. Start drilling using the 3/8s(2mm), for the pilot hole. (BE CAREFUL DO NOT DRILL THROUGH ONE OF YOUR TRUNK STRUTS LIKE I DID). Once you have you pilot hole drilled, swap the bit for the 17/32(6.5mm) and drill the hole on out. Remove all masking tape and stencils. This would be a great time to spray a little rust protection primer on the inside of the trunk toward your freshly drilled holes, i would suggest putting a piece of tape over the hole...

Step 3:

Get your magnet and Phillips head ready... (Just in case your wondering the magnet is for when you drop your screw inside the trunk lid.) To gain access to the hole you just drilled you will need to remove these black rubber pieces.


Begin by putting the washer on your screw, then insert it into the drilled hole. (I would suggest laying a blanket or something over your window unless someone is helping you.) Start the first screw of the (4) into your spoiler, when you have the first screw snug, go to the opposite side and put that screw in. When you get that snug, put the other (2) screws in and finish it up by tightening all (4) down, not so tight you'll mess your spoiler up.



Step 4:

Stand back and admire your new spoiler!




Have a great day and I hope this came in handy!
