GT500 Spoiler

Hey everyone, so today I will be receiving my spoiler ordered through AM. For those who have installed this spoiler on cars which did not have a existing spoiler, what size drill bit was used to make the holes? I did read the installation guide on AM but there mostly directed to cars who have previous spoilers. I just want to be ready with the materials to install this bad boy, so excited!

I used a 5/16 drill bit. You could also go with 3/8. But start with a small drill bit for a starter hole. That prevents the larger bit from walking.

Thanks a lot for the reply, I just received the spoiler a few minutes ago. It seems I will have to drill 4 holes in total correct?2 on each side

Yes. And definitely remember to remove the two plastic plugs on the inside of your trunk lid. You will drill right through them. That's the access for two of the screws.

If you don't have one, I would also buy a center punch. That way you can make a small dimple exactly where you want to drill the holes. It will keep the pilot hole bit from walking also...

The good news with the GT500 spoiler is, it is huge. I was worried when I took off my stock spoiler and nicked the paint in a few places trying to cut the 3M tape loose. No worries. It will cover some big mistakes...

The installation did not take as long as I thought it would, I will post pictures tomorrow since it's dark atm. I did make extra holes, even tho its covered by the spoiler is there a chance for rust? and possibly future problems?
edit: holes were so close to where I needed them to be, just off by a inch

I took touch up paint and went around the hole when I put the California Special spoiler on my 2010.

And masking tape. Place a piece of it over the body/painted surface that you will be dilling onto. It helps keep the bit from "walking", and prevents the paint from chipping around the hole when drilling.
