    With mine the bugs normally manage to hit and wedge in the tiny space between where the plactic spoiler meets the metal.:)

    Thanks Doug. I'll take bug juice over stone chips!

    They do wind up there don't they! I wait a few days to let them dry up a little before getting them off. Crunchy is better :p

    Both my wife & daughter had to work a short schedule today so I had some time to get the spoiler installed. Installation method was the same as last time by using 1/2" black rivets. Doing it by myself was a little challenging but 1" c-clamps helped hold one end while I worked the other side.

    The pics really don't do justice to how good this turned out. I'm really impressed with the look compared to the old painted look! :cool: Fingerprints cleaned up great using spray detailer...so far so good!

    Thanks!
    I just wanted a smooth look to the install, especially the end portions in the wheel well. The rivets made sense to me to do that. They provide a good tight install and as I mentioned earlier a pretty easy removal. :)
