okay guys, i just got my spoiler in today. it is awesome. its real carbon fiber on top, and a plastic bottom for bolts to go in. it is probably the best TRD spoiler rep out there. anyway, i'll post some pics when i get it on.

I assume you're not planning to bolt it to your trunk, right? Are you going to just use double-sided tape to install it?

Good luck bolting it


Dunno where or how that will work

I just used the 3M and the LTUNED and other spoilers I have done are stuck

Cool, I look forward to seeing some pics. However, bolting probably isn't necessary; and just using tape may be better if you ever change your mind the future and want to remove the spoiler. It's not quite as permanment.

Does the spoiler come with the metal clamps used at the ends of the trunk?

jason, i was kidding about selling the ltuned.

everyone else. the REAL TRD spoiler is mounted on the trunk by a combination of tape and 2 (or was it 4) screws. the tape is all along the front edge of the lip, that sits on the trunk. also, you have to drill holes into the trunk lid in order to secure the screws into the threaded inserts that are built into the spoiler.

the L-tuned spoiler is secured to the trunk via tape and two C-clamps. no drilling of holes required.

where are the bolts at? (I have never seen a knock off spoiler)



Also was going to say Irv, going from a rare spoiler to a knock-off :lol:

the spoiler came with 4 bolts. you have to buy the 3M tape. i really like the spoiler. the angle is perfect. its probably the best TRD like spoiler for the money. i suggest you getting one if your lookin for a TRD spoiler.
