Rear OEM spoiler Install

Ok the OEM spoiler from wooddashexperts.com is really easy to install… It took me about 2 hours to do by myself! If I would have had someone to help me it would have been a short install… probably less than 30 minutes!

Let’s start off with the tools needed! A drill with a 5/16 bit and a ¾ bit. A 3/8 socket and ratchet, or a nut driver. Some tape and a tape measure and some black primer.



If you follow the instructions it’s easy… I took the T markers and sanded the outside of them down a little so they would come out of the holes on the spoiler a little easier.



After the spoiler was placed and measured for center I took some tape and taped the T markers to the car and lifted the spoiler off.



The instructions say to just drill the holes in the markers with the 5/16 bit but I drilled pilot holes with a bit that would fit through the holes and then drilled them out with the 5/16 bit… if I would have had a ¾ bit it would have been great to drill the underside of the second layer… I didn’t so I just made them bigger with the biggest bit I had… it worked but not as well as if had the right tools!

I sprayed the holes with some black primer to cover the exposed metal.

I sat the spoiler on the trunk and lined up one of the holes and put the screws in and then tightened them up… smooth as silk! I topped it off with some primer on the screw heads to cover up the shiny silver screws…



I would have taken more pictures but there just wasn’t a lot to take pictures of! At least with me doing the work and taking the pics!



It turned out really well!

good job man! good write up and a nice install! looks real good!

may i suggest getting the rear spoiler delete next? that way it doesnt look like you have two spoilers there.

and mods should this be moved to the How to in the Eclipse Garage section?

nice wing man, but not my style - the only wings that I ever liked were;







The rest of the wings on cars just look silly for me
