    I dont think the one im getting comes with mounting hardware, and it has the led wiring in it. How do I connect the wiring...is there a pre-fabricated harness that simply wasnt used on my car b/c it didnt come with a spoiler? Also, Can I go to the store and buy bolts and washers for this after I drill the holes in the trunk? Or do I need more than just "Bolts"

    Last thing...dont you need some kind of foam in between the spoiler and trunk, every video I have seen has some sort of double sided tape on the new spoiler, and once it is bolted down the plastic is removed from the tape...

    Spoiler does not need any foam, your trunk is already wired with the connection for the light and just need 4 bolts to keep it on once its drilled into trunk.

    Nice, but would it be a good idea to put some electrical tape or SOMETHING there? Metal to metal doesn't seem ideal...

    Don't install one... instead go do a trunk swap. There are more than enough people in the nation that want a wingless trunk!

    Full trunk swap is just 4 bolts just like adding the spoiler is 4 bolts. Its going to take more to drill the holes than to swap trunks.

    That's not going to work in your favor.

    Yes, but seeing as how you are the wingless trunk owner, you will have people fawning all over you with trade offers. If you had been the one wanting to go wingless on the other hand....good luck.
