Cabikejumper has a good point also. Just post up pics when you get the wing

That's a good idea!

prorider46 i think it would be fine with a lot of 3m tape, i held me GT hood scoop on with JUST that for 2 years, and then when i hit a deer and cracked the hood the whole way across, it still didnt want to come off with a putty knife and brute force, i thought that the scoop was going to break before the bond of the tape would.

Cabikejumper I'm 99% sure the spoiler has pre drilled holes. You will need to drill new holes in your truck and have the gt holes filled in.

Im prett sure my ABC spoiler has cobra holes but I haven't looked at it since I bought it.

843angler Nope, that's my concern. Well atleast from the pictures it doesn't look like there is. I hope I'm wrong though. That would definatly save some time and headache

843angler Alright well when the spoiler gets here ill take a look at it and see what will be the best option. I'll let y'all know how it goes and post some pictures of the results! Thanks again for the help

Mustang_Girl_32 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.

condor123 drill mounting holes in spoiler, bolt to car, fill holes on spoiler with fiberglass or bondo, pray it ddoes not come out like shit lol

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

843angler No ideas?
March 20th, 2013 10:17 PM
843angler Thanks for input But I'm definatly going to need at least a couple of bolts in it just for piece of mind. So I know it's not going to fly off going down the interstate
