    This may be obvious to some people but I was trying to figure out how to remove the bolts from the 3 piece spoiler to mock it up on my rear end. Hopefully this helps someone.

    Take two nuts and thread them both onto the bolt. Try not to thread the bottom nut all the way down so that it is easy to remove later.

    Tighten the top nut firmly against the bottom nut. You can now use an open wrench on the bottom nut to loosen the bolt.

    Once removed, you can remove the nuts from the bolt.

    Right on. They came out pretty easy this way. BTW, I tried the aluminum foil but it didn't work well for me. Once I test fitted the parts, I traced an outline on the car and ended up using clay to press the parts into. That worked very well for marking the holes.
