it would help to know the style of the spoiler and the link of the ebay auction. Each style varies on install difficulty.

Im not sure if they mean 3 of the holes to hold the spoiler down are gone??? but u can just drill 3 holes to make sure it holds. With my visteon there were 4 holes and I just used my screws that were holding my stock spoiler down for it. This is a great deal though because I payed $180 for my visteon un-painted so go for it if u think u can improvise like the guy says.

I have 2 of the mounting studs from when i replaced my spoiler. If you get that spoiler, I could mail these to you, and then just drill the holes, and it will work. It will be secure with just 3 of the studs, but it would be even more secure if you could find a fourth.

Yes if you are missing the screws you can get them at any parts place. As for the threads you can also get them fixed or replaced at a body shop.

ok, well the spoiler finally came in. and after looking at it one of the studs is still in place, but as for the other 3 they were PULLED out completely, leaving just half-dollar sized holes. ive been thinking about how to mound new studs, and i cant seem to figure it out.... anyone have some ideas???

well the spoiler is hollow for one thing... so im pretty sure that i cant just fill with bondo or fiberglass... as for making metal hangers, how would i do that??? i guess i can just drill new holes, that would be the easiest, but i have to figure out how i can do that so that the bolt head will not turn when i tighten the nut down. another thing that will be difficult about that also would be getting the bolt in the hole, head first... i still have to get it painted, so im still not sure how im going to do this, but im definatley open to suggestions...
