well decided on a xenon spoiler..... (how to mount)

Alright guys I have decided to buy a xenon spoiler for my car how do I mount it? Is it double sided tape? Any other way to mount them? I just don't want it fall off or anything.

I am not sure, I will look when I get home, but a word of warning, the owner before me installed it and it hits the top of both of the rear quarterpanels to the point where I have no paint where it sits. You can't tell when it's closed, and it looks great on, but just something to look out for.

it should be mounted with screws, i've haven't seen a wing that just mounts with double sided tape.

Well I just ordered it hopefully it mounts good. Everyone seems to think these are good spoilers so I'll find out and get some pics of my car after I get it painted and installed.

Yep mine is screwed on, checked last night. In my opinion the best looking spoiler out there, of course, I am a little partial

Yeah I bought it for $119 + 19 shipping off ebay. I hope it comes with all the mounting hardware.

you got it for about 1/2 price. my uncle has a xenon kit on his 96 and it is screwed on, but if you don't put something down it will rub your paint off. I have a xenon kit on mine, but i have a different wing. The spoiler was like $110 when i saw it the other day. you got a good deal dude.

The spoiler I had came of an 87 trans am, it had bolts fiberglassed in, so I had to drill 4 holes in the trunk for the bolts to go through, then used locknuts on the backside, with plenty of superblue.

I have that spoiler on my Bird. Double sided tape doesnt work. I suggest Black urathene (sp). The screws the go through the trunk into the spoiler are also no good. make sure you pre drill then use a aggressive screw by hand to tighten down. The Plastic isnt very durable. I had mine installed professionally 4 yrs ago. it has come off the car 3 times. The last time we came up w/ something to keep it from doing it again.. Also Make sure you clean and ruff the painted surface on the trunk. Or nothing will stay. We used a grease pen to mark where it made contact.
