rear wing spoiler

Well,l no buyers for the yellow ssr, So am going to keep it. Bought a billet grill and a rear wing spoiler. Now, how do I get the carpet loose so I can put the screws in to mount the spoiler? Have the bed option and everything is carpet, underside of the rear cover has it too. Does the plastic plugs that hold the carpet just snap out?

Yes.

Once you get them out, you may break one or two. You can get these fasteners at any AutoZone. Good luck. Measure twice, drill once. Better make it three time.

For some it is not hard to install. Read the instructions several times and determine if you can DIY. Any doubt have it professionally done.

Installed that wing, Had a nervous breakdown!

With NO straight edges to work with on the wing and none on the lid either, it was a nightmare to commit the drill to the metal.
Measured many times and moved the wing several times as the top surface is no problem, but you need to look underneath at the ribbed surface as there are some areas that are not easy to get thru to install the screws.
The second hole from underneath needs to be big enough to get the head of the screw thru and is larger than the top hole. A step drill can make holes a 1/16 of an inch at a time.
This is not a task for the faint of heart.

Been out to the shop several times to install the spoiler. Just can't seem to drill the holes in the lid. The drill guide that came with the kit is not like the ones used in the post by XSLER8 on his install. His were black T looking plastic things. Mine are flat thin flat strips with a hole in the center you line up with the hole in the wing. Will go out next week and try it, Maybe!!!

OR, You can cut a piece of thick rubber tubing to slip over the bit and cut it so that you get just enough penetration (oh, Baby) to go thru the trunk lid. Cheap drill stop....

Can you post pictures of the spoiler & drill guides. Can you scan/post the instructions for us. Your best bet is to be patient (which you are)until you fully understand what to do. If you really feel uncertain let a quality shop do it for you. It will be cheaper to have a pro install it than DIY and having a mishap. Keep reviewing and discussing the installation until it is Glued in your mind.

Sorry don't know how to post pictures. Am going to install the spoiler this week. Just takes a little time to make up my mind to do it. Like the stock look, but the spoiler adds that custom style. picture now here
