    Hi thanks for dropping by, boot spoiler come today I'm not sure what its off maybe a coupe because its curved, any way If I drill the holes where they are ment to be I can't get access to them from the inside, on a friends saloon he's is clipped on by two clips that go round the edge of the lid, but can't find them anywhere none at breakers can't find any on the web an the bloke in the dealership didn't have a clue, people have suggested bonding it but I'm not sure that will hold as there ain't much to bond, before I drill holes big enough for a socket to fit thru any one got any suggestions please would be appreciated thanks.

    The aftermarket ones i have seen fitted all have a bit of hacking done on the inside.

    Best way...

    If the bonding hardens, lifts from ice or frost or breaks down over time, it'll be through the bumper of the next car behind you, and you can bet it would be something expensive too!
