Help with cobra spoiler instillation

Okay so I pieced together my entire 03/04 cobra body kit for 1500. But I was looking at the pics from the spoiler I bought and I can't tell how it bolts on. I know on the oem there are a hand full of threads that you have to through bolt to trunk. But the one I ordered has no threads. So how the heck so I put this this on securely?

Drill the holes in the trunk and bolt it on.

sounds like you got a driving hazard for a spoiler. it'll attach with 3M tape, but, don't expect it to stay on if it doesn't have anything to bolt it to.

+1. That's what I was thinking. I was just wondering if any one eles has gone through this. The only way I can think of is to put bolts in through the top then fill over them before paint. I would like that to be absolute last resort though

Did you get the ABC exclusive spoiler? IIRC, Mine has holes pre drilled in the spoiler along with 3m tape al around it.

Re: Help with cobra spoiler instillation

If you wanted, try and find a bolt with no head, and drill a hole smaller in spoiler, then take to nuts and put em on the bolts and turn both the opossite way so they lock together...now you should he able.to.use a socket of some sort to screw the bolt into the wing, then drill holes in the trunk and bolt it on and plus use to of the double sided tape

You'd be surprised with how things are held on. I'm guessing it's going to have to be like the abc exclusive that I have. you have to fill old holes, and make new ones back farther.
