Installation Time: (approx) 2 Hours
The following installation will take roughly 2 hours from start to finish provided you have all of the required tools. The installation will be divided into roughly 5 sections as outlined below.
Stock Spoiler Removal (If your car has one; If not skip to Step 15)
Inner Nuts (Left Side pictured above)
Outer Nuts Covered (Left Side) Removal of Outer Nuts Covered (Right Side)
Drilling the Holes
NOTE: Do not remove the painters tape until all drilling is complete. The painters tape ensures that the paint holes to the car during drilling.
NOTE: The following steps are IRREVERSIBLE and should be handled with care. If you do not have experience using a power drill, please consult someone who is a professional.
At this point you have two options. Option 1: Purchase 4 longer bolts which can reach through the first layer and second layer to tighten into the GT/CS Spoiler. Option 2: You can use a ½ drill bit ONLY on the inside sheet layer on metal. This will allow the bolt head and washer to slip through the inner layer to tighter against the outer (trunk surface) layer of the car.
I chose to go with Option 2. I wanted to use the parts that came with the spoiler. Be careful when choosing option 2. Anyone who has dealt with larger drill bits knows they have a tendency to get away from the handler and you do NOT want the bit to go through the outer surface of the trunk.
With the hole drilling complete, lift your spoiler and mock hold it in place to ensure all your holes line up. If you took extra time to create your template and didnt rush, they should like up perfectly.
Congratulations!!! Your GT/CS (California Special) Spoiler has now been installed. Before After Installation Guide
