I bought a few spoilers on ebay; no instructions. You may not think twice and consider installation is easy. But there are a few problems.
Mid hatch unstallation for example: no template; makes it a little difficult to calculate where to drill exactly. BUT the biggest problem is how to access a drilled hole (to tighten it the bolt which wouold be placed inside). You see, the mid hatch area doesnt seem to have an access area on the inside lateral edge; just another piece of sheet metal. So how do you get at a hypothetical bolt hole that is drilled on the outside? There are two pieces of sheet metal separated by a 3 inch space. Any ideas??? Would hate to haver to cut out a 2 by 2 inch piece of the inside sheet metal to get at the bolt holes on the outside sheet metal.
Thanks.

Re: Mid hatch SPOILER install - instructions anyone? (Whataguy)

Sorry to tell ya, but thats what you gotta do, drill though both, and make the inside one bigger to fit the washer and bolt through.
