Hi
Need any advice in fitting rear boot spoiler on AU1 , I have located mounting holes inside boot lid
Would best approach be drilling these holes from underside or making a template and drill
from top of boot ?
Cheers

you could make a small pilot hole from underneath but from the top would be best imo :D

Hi
I will do that , it looks as though it has always been on car , looks good.
For the mounting bolts I sealed around them with the same sealer as you would use to install a windscreen , will not leak
Cheers Kevin
