Are they speed humps on the back you are using to weigh down the spoiler?
If so that's one way to get over them.

Welcome to the 5 door conversion club , Get ready for the "Why didn't you just buy a Type R" brigade

Oh God that looks immense. In an ideal world I would have the lower bodywork, minus the spoiler on my FK2.

Do you mean the bolts? If so yes you can use the bolts from the other triangles just remember to remove the threaded nut from the plastic

You will sell what I mean when u remove it
