Re: 99-04 CHIN SPOILER

you have to drill some holes then use push pins thats about it. You can use some painters tape to get it all lined up and held in place. Then mark the drill spots and drill the holes and stick some push pins in. The hardest part is not drilling through the top part of the bumper and lining up the chin spoiler.

Re: 99-04 CHIN SPOILER

they dont use push pins anymore, they have good old nuts bolts and washers for the install, it is tricky, def need two people you need to line it up just right, a lot of people make the mistake of making it flush with the front bumper, its suppose to be back like 1/4 of an inch if that, go from one side to the other and make sure the ends line up with the wheelwells for that nice Mach1 aggressive look, took me and my step dad 2 hours and a lot of gorilla tape for mock ups before i started to drill, the american muscle install vid explains it all.

Re: 99-04 CHIN SPOILER

Yah they definitely are a great addition to the front of the car.

As said nuts and bolts are used on the aftermarket ones...I believe push pins were used on the original Mach 1 chin spoilers.

You'll definitely want another friend to help you out. Me and my buddy did both our cars in about little more than an hour...most of that time was spent aligning the spoilers up just right. Make sure you get the edges even by the fenderwells. Doing this will pull the spoiler back a little under the front bumper, but that's alright..it's supposed to look like that.

I say get one...they make the car look more aggressive and hide all that nasty sh*t under the car in the front.

Re: 99-04 CHIN SPOILER

Yeah, they are nice and they fit the 99-04 a bit better too. I put mine on by myself using the blue tape mentioned to hold it in place. A extra set of hands makes it even easier. AM sent me nuts and bolts too. I watched their video directions before putting it on. Post pics when done- Good luck!

i like to keep the stock look of my interior - so i bought this aux adaptor which is not even noticeable and looks as if it came with the car! it comes with a switch for when you want to use it. it also gives you the option to either have the AUX installed or the ipod cable. i had the ipod cable first then i had them switch it to the aux, that way u can plug any phone or mp3 to it.

the switch to the left of the lighter is the one to turn it on and off. bestbuy did a great job at installing it! best of all - you get to keep the stock look of the car.

Re: 99-04 CHIN SPOILER

I like it because it looks like its part of the car, and you get to choose where you want the button and aux plug to go -
