Did you buy the rear GT500 spoiler new? If so, I'd contact the vendor for a template. If you bought it used, and know the manufacturer, you may still want to contact them to see if they'll send you oner.

Here's a PDF file from the Roush site that shows how to remove/install their rear fascia valance; the instructions would be the same for a GT bumper.

I would contact the vendor you bought it from. They should have sent out a template for drilling the holes.

As to the drilling, here's a few tips:

1) Place masking tape over the aprox spots where the holes are to be drilled, then lay out the template, and mark the spot on the masking tape. Masking tape helps prevent the paint from flaking when you do the drilling.

2) Start with a small drill bit, moving up to a medium bit, then drill out with the final size. This keeps the bit from "walking" when drilling.

3) Use some paint to touch up the inner circomference of the drilled hole. This can be any color, as the spoiler is going to cover the hole.

4) Place a dab of silicone in the hole, then the bolts that secure the spoiler to the trunk lid. This helps prevent any water that might get in between the spoiler and the trunk lid from entering into the trunk area.
