Hi guys, I'm requiring some assistance with the front spoiler i'm fitting to my car. I had a wack at it yesterday and a few problems cropped up. The spoiler is this one:
Bought it off fleebay, and was advertised for 3dr and 5dr versions, lined it up a little prior to spraying and it seemed fine, couldn't tell 100% because of the existing plastic splitter that was on there.
So after spraying and allowing to dry, got round to fitting and it was a bit bigger than the bumper so extends further on the edges (sticks out towards the wheels), it's around an inch on either side. I'm thinking I can just cut these bits off with an angle grinder but I'm not sure on how to seal the ends off again so there's no gap there. Advice on this would be appreciated.
Secondly, I'm a bit worried that it won't hold, I have used sikaflex all round but I'm thinking I should put some screws in somewhere, question is where!? There were 4 bits on the inside two on the outer edges and two on either side of the middle. The bits on the outer edge had holes for screws but they didnt slot in anywere and were getting in the way so I chopped em off. Now I'm thinking I need to put screws in somewhere to put my mind at rest and make sure it holds on properly, so my question is, any ideas where or how I can put some screws in?
On the plus side, the car's looking much better, the front looks a lot beefier than before I'm gonna try and sort the above issue tonight when I get home from work, as well as putting on the sideskirts so your help would be much appreciated.
