Hi all,

Just got myself a spoiler off a mk2 sporting to put on my active sport. Ive got it sprayed and it looks the business but im after some advice with regards to fitting. It looks like im going to have to drill the rear window in order to bolt it on. . . Can i just use Tiger Seal instead and cut the bolts off?

Its that strong?! :eek:

Oh yes. My mate 'OxO' on the forum tried to remove his bump stripes on his Seicento and found out the hardway the previous owner put them on with tiger seal which made them split in two while taking them off!. It just doesn't come off paint work once its set :eek:. So make sure you dont get any where you don't want it :p.

have you got a picture of the spoiler and i will advise you. you can get a special tool for drilling the glass to fit spoilers but might not be neccesary.

The key is to use enough to cover the surface area that you want to 'bond' but dont put to much on so that its caked on as that will be very baaaaad :rolleyes:.

the punto spoilers are bonded on at the dealers and thats all, First trial fit it and make a few markers for refitting (pen and masking tape) then lightly rub the part of the spoiler that will fixed to the glass with a bit of rough sandpaper, and clean both parts to be bonded thoroughly, i use panel wipe
then put a bead of sealer all the way around the edge of the spoiler about 1cm in, and 4 or 5 blobs in the middle, its also helpful to have an assistant to help you alighn, then fix to the car, press it onto the glass firmly, clean any excess using the panel wipe and cloth, (spirit wipe, turps etc, but non oily!)
and fix in place with a strong tape, i use masking or gaffer tape, then leave overnight until you remove the tape, dont forget the temperature will have a lot to do with the curing time of the sealer, when i did the uno spoiler, on a cold day, i used a hairdryer inside the car (fixed in place) aimed at the area for quite a while, to help! and alls well!! good luck! Ant!

Cheers for the advice guys!

Ive just finished spraying the spoiler tonight so tommorow/ wednesday it should be ready for fitting. Ive been trying to get hold of some tigerseal, the local motorfactors didn't have any but reccomended PU4, and halfords said they didn't sell it and i would need to go to a bodyshop.

Would PU4 work or can anyone tell me a place near leeds that definately stocks it?

try and find a bodyshop supplier, brown brothers, supertune or any good motofactors should stock it, even no more nails have brought out a new sealer with extra GRAB!! which may do the trick! Ant!

The punto i got the spoiler off did have the rear windscreen drilled, it had 2 rubber washer type things that sat in the hole. They still had the glass stuck in them when i got it from the scrappies.
