Hey, haven't posted here in years but was hoping for some advice.

I've got a spare boot with spoiler holes and a spoiler here but nothing to to connect the two, were a specific type of nuts n bolts used or will any that fit work? Is there meant to be anything else to this like something going between the spoiler and boot lid (like a rubber insert or something)? All i have is the spoiler itself and the boot lid.

Cheers guys

there should be m6 studs in the spoiler held on with m6 nuts.
but if there is no studs in the spoiler you should be able to use m6x12 or m6x18mm bolts..
and there is normally a rubber foam pad between the spoiler and boot lid but you could use sikaflex or even gasket silicon in between..

you can buy ( if they have any left ) a spoiler fitting kit from fraud

which had the studs, the pads and nuts

I bought one many years back...

but sikaflex works fine

Sikaflex is fine if you don't want to get it off again.
As TROYMAN said gasket silicone or use bostik caulking tape.

You could not have used wax and grease remover and keyed the area.
If its prepared properly polyurethane ( sikaflex ) wont come off needs to be cut off.
Its not my first day using this product.
