Spoiler!

A sunny weekend gave me the opportunity to get this fitted. Two bolts and a generous helping of Sikaflex mean it's not going anywhere! I must have spent an hour checking exactly where to drill into the perspex, and even then I was still pretty nervous about doing it... but it was worth taking the time as it fitted perfectly first time.
Left it out overnight with two tins of paint and a bucket of rocks borrowed from the garden; was pleased to see that they'd not been nicked when I went out in the morning!

I give a thousand thanks to Nat for the spoiler.

Quick detail today before pics - can't believe how much better the car looks now.

Easiest option is to just coat the back in Sikaflex / Tiger Seal and whack it on. If you want to drill into the perspex then I'm happy to assist but I won't be doing the drilling!

Fantastic, I'm torn between the type s and type r spoiler on my s but seeing your car may have just swung my decision. Loving the sports grill and color coding as well, can't wait to do the same.

Thanks all. Next mod will be a type R front brake upgrade; as soon as my local breaker gets the calipers for me!
