How hard is it to put a spoiler on an EL? It doesnt have one already so I will need to drill holes and crap as well..Also how do I do the wiring, is there a walk through anywhere?

what type of spoiler. they are all pretty easy to fit but take the time to measure and move it around to where u want to keep it (two people better than 1 i.e 2nd opinion) wire it to your brake light wires easy as

just try and get another boot lid, a lot of ppl like the look of no spoiler so if u hunt around u may find someone with the same colour willing to swap.

The spoiler brake light is easy to wire up. Simply earth the negative into the boot somewhere and the postive taps into the Green wire with Red Strip that runs to the RH Tailight

Ride: 2.0 Turbo VW

Power: 142 rwkw

Location: Seaford State:
VIC, Australia

I Put a spoiler on my car
(sprayed the spoiler and bought another boot of the same color)

I installed it by measuring it ie: theres 5 spots for the holes to go on in the boot
2 outer (single steel no grommet)
2 outer (more inside) has a rubber bung
1 center cavity 2 bolts and a wire hole (depends on spoiler)

I drilled the outers as they 'have to match up and make it center.
then put blue tack on the remaining holes on the spoiler.
Put in long bolts in the holes i drilled, let it sit and took the spoiler off.
Drilled the other holes where the blue tack was.

Also helps to get a texta and mark the blue tack so either it stays or the texta does it job.

Now I've written all that.... I might read the post and see if this is what ur asking!

no need to wire it, the factory came with the wire's for it, just plugs into the existing socket and bam, thats what i did with mine.
