Hey guys, Adam here with americanmuscle.com. And today, we're taking a closer look at and installing the V3R Style Wicker Bill Rear Spoiler Add-On in a Gloss Carbon Fiber finish available for the 2015 and newer Charger. You should, very simply put, be checking this out if you're looking to add on to your factory wicker bill style spoiler with a bolt-on attachment that brings it up a notch to give you a more aerodynamic, race-inspired look. Now the nice thing about this is, it's a two-piece set that really adds that custom race styling. Now, this uses about 1/8-inch thick carbon fiber weave material. Now that is a true carbon fiber, and it's gonna bolt right up to the underside or the outside of your factory wicker style spoiler. Now, if you don't have that factory spoiler, you are gonna have to pick one up and then attach that first, and then put the add-on in place.Now, this uses again, a two-piece set. So you have that carbon fiber gloss finish, and then you have that clear acrylic that'll go on the inside to give it a more complete look. Now, of course, you can opt to not include that, but it is a two-piece set, and adding that to the inside is gonna increase that aerodynamic look. Now, this particular option comes in right around 300 bucks. And the install gets three out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter because there is some custom install involved. You are gonna need a couple of specialty tools like a drill, a 3/8 drill bit, and a rivet setter. Now all of the rivnuts are included in the kit. Now, if you're not familiar with that or how that works, I'll show you guys a quick tutorial later on, quickly show you how that actually gets used to make sure this gets installed because you can do it in the driveway at home, it's just you're gonna need those specialty tools and a couple of extra minutes to get that taken care of.All you're gonna be doing is drilling seven 3/8 of an inch holes across the outside of the factory spoiler using a rivnut setter to set some threaded inserts into those holes. And then you're gonna be bolting it down using the exposed hardware you see here. Now, the exposed hardware here is gonna be visible from the outside of the vehicle. They are chrome or a silver finish. Now, if you want, you can pick up black hardware. I personally think that would look a little bit better against the gloss carbon fiber weave, but this is what it came with and it does look pretty aggressive on the outside. With that said guys, I'll walk you through that process. It'll take you about two hours. What do you say we get started?Tools used in the install include a drill, a 3/8 drill bit, Allen key set, center punches recommended, rivet setter, and painter's tape. Now because we're gonna be drilling holes into our factory spoiler, we wanna make sure we're taping this off properly so that we don't get any of the metal shavings on the paint. We don't want to scratch anything up. We don't want our drill bit to miss or jump off and hit the paint. So, the first thing I'm gonna do is put painter's tape all along this little strip of factory paint color right underneath of that spoiler. I'm gonna start from one side and just work my way over. So, I'm gonna put painter's tape there, cut it off if you need to, and work your way all the way across.Perfect. That'll give us some coverage so we don't damage our factory paint. Next up, we wanna take our add-on, and we're gonna line it up where we want it to be on our factory spoiler. Now, what I like to do is first off make sure that the holes are punched out on the spoiler add-on. There's just vinyl going across it, so you might have to just poke them out if you haven't done so already, or if it wasn't like that out of the box, that way, you know exactly where your holes are gonna be. What I like to do is take the center hole on the spoiler and line it up directly above the backup camera. If for whatever reason your vehicle doesn't have a backup camera, you can use the D in the Dodge logo on the trunk. That's the dead center of the trunk there so you can use that as a reference. I'm gonna use this backup camera. So we want to put it right above that, make sure it's completely lined up. Once you have it exactly where you want it to be, take some painter's tape, and I have a couple of strips already cut out, and we're gonna tape this to the factory spoiler so it stays on. All right. I'm gonna do that on both sides of that hole.All right. Am also gonna tape across a couple of different sections all along the spoiler so it's held on. Put tape on both sides of all of the holes there. I want it to be nice and flush so we know that we have a really good bond there. I'm gonna go back to this side. All right. Take a step back and make sure you like the positioning of that. And, of course, you wanna make sure the edges are down as well. Next, I'm gonna use my center punch to mark the dead center of each one of the pre-drilled holes, that way it's gonna leave a mark on the factory spoiler and we can pull this off, drill our holes, and set our rivnuts. Now, if you don't have a center punch, you can use a Sharpie, you just wanna make sure you're using a Sharpie that you'll be able to see come off on the factory spoilers. So maybe one of the chrome ones or the silver ones, but a center punch is a good way to go as well. All right. Repeat this for the rest of them. Next, we're gonna pull our add-on off. I am gonna leave the tape on the add-on, I'm just gonna pull it off the factory spoiler now that we made our holes. I actually did go back with a Sharpie and did a little circle with a Sharpie, just to have two forms of markings just to make sure we can easily identify where those holes are. All right. And then we can set this add-on aside.Next part here, we're gonna use a 3/8 drill bit and drill through those markings. First, you wanna make sure the markings are easily identifiable. If you can't see them very well, put the spoiler add-on back on, mark your holes very clearly. This is really important. You really only get one shot at it so you wanna make sure you're...the saying really is measure twice, cut once. Same thing happens with drilling, measure twice, drill once. So, we can see our markings here. We're gonna grab a 3/8 drill bit and drill through. It's extremely important that you don't put too much pressure on the drill itself because you don't want the drill bit to go all the way through the spoiler. We only want to drill the hole on the outside here where the trunk lid is, not on the top side. So, only going through this side here, make sure you're doing that. It's extremely important. So, I'm gonna start here in the center, drill this one out and make sure it's good. And then we'll repeat that for the rest of them. All right. So, I've put it in and out a couple of times just to make sure the hole is completely clean. Repeat that for the rest of them.All right. At this point, you wanna grab your rivet setter. You wanna make sure you're grabbing the rivets included in the kit, and you're gonna put that right into the hole making sure it's completely flush, clamped down, and remove it. Now that's gonna set that rivnut into the factory spoiler, and that's what you're gonna tighten down with. So at this point, guys, make sure you have it prepped properly and clamp her down. All right. Once you have that set, do that for the rest of them. So you're just repeating this process. Next up, we're gonna lift up our spoiler add-on, we're gonna line it up into place. And we're gonna use one of the hex screws and washers to hold it in place on each end. I'm gonna use the outermost ones first, just because our plastic or our acrylic is gonna go in the center, so we don't want to put those bolts through just yet. Just hold this in place and I'm threading on the outermost holes first. Once that one's in place, just hand tight, come over to the other side, and do the same thing. All right. Once you have that a couple of threads on, we can grab our acrylic, slide it in the center there. I'm also gonna pull off our masking tape. Next up, take your acrylic sheet. I'm gonna slide that guy carefully behind the spoiler add-on and shuffle it down so it lines up with the open holes. Once you have that lined up, grab the rest of the bolts and put them through.All right. Once you have those guys threaded in a couple of threads, repeat it for all of them, and then let's tighten them down. Now it is optional to put the acrylic here on the inside or the outside. I think it looks better personally tucked between the new spoiler add-on and the spoiler, but you can, of course, put it on the outside if you'd like. At this point, grab an Allen key of the appropriate size and tighten it down. Repeat that for all of them. All right guys, once that one's tightened down, you're good to go. I recommend grabbing maybe some detailer and just cleaning it off, making sure all the fingerprints are gone. But at that point, guys, gonna wrap it up, we're good to go.That's gonna wrap up my review and install for the V3R Style Wicker Bill Rear Spoiler Add-On available for the 2015 and newer Charger.
