Is it possible to order GT500 spoiler painted from the dealership?

probably but don't bother, you'll spend twice as much there as you will on eBay and you have lots of people here including myself that will vouch for the Spoiler Store on eBay.

Does the GT500 spoiler from The Spoiler Store use both sets of mounting bolts on both sides like the oem GT500? Many aftermarket spoiler vendors sell a spoiler that only uses one bolt per side.

Thanks for the help!!

You can use one bolt per side, with the 3M tape and be fine. There are provisions on the spoiler allowing you to use more fasteners. However, to use those would require drilling the decklid.

I opted not to drill, and I'm now approaching the 1 year mark and it's doing just fine. I'm also very picky about the fit and finish of a part.

Thanks for the reply Misbehavin! So what you are saying is that the spoiler from The Spoiler Store does not come with two bolts per side, just one.

No, it comes with two per side, but you only have to use one. Bear in mind that these "bolts" are really studs, and you only thread in what you need. The other spots are optional, and most people choose not to install them. Just for clarification, the two optional holes with this spoiler are out towards the sides of the trunk lid, not directly forward of the factory holes. I wish I had a picture of mine handy, but I don't.

The unused factory holes should be sealed with some silicone sealant to avoid any water finding it's way into the trunk.

I will chime in also. I got mine from the spoiler store and paint match was spot on but the finish left something to be desired. The good thing though was it has plenty of clear coat so you can wet sand w/ 2000 grit and rub it out w/ a 3M polishing material. Yes I'm a little ****, I mean particular. lol As far as the second set of holes I would not drill them, I did and wished I didn't. I didn't hurt anything , but with the set of holes that do line up and the amount of 3M tape that sucker isn't going to go anywhere.

I must have come out pretty well on mine. It had less orange peel than the factory paint. Mine isn't the worst case of orange peel from the factory, but there is some present.

Seems like orange peel is standard equipment on cars nowadays...

I also can vouch for the spoiler, I put mine on last week and I'm loving it. Finish was great, installation wasn't too hard. It did take about 2 hours though to get the adhesive off, I just used a credit card to get the majority of it off, then went to town with a rag and some goo gone. I did rub down my fingers quite a bit, they were hurting for a couple days afterward. You do not need more than just the two holes, that's all I used and it turned out great and stable. Make sure you line up the holes right though when you push it down with the 3m tape, I was off by like 1/8th of an inch, so it took my friend basically hanging on it to line it up right for the screws. Good luck though, completely changes the look of the car, especially if you bought the car with a huge ricer wing like me. I have more pics in my sig if you want to see how it looks on my car.

Here's TacoBill's write up on how to install the spoiler, worked great for me, and you can always trust TacoBill Taco Bill Installation Guide

UPDATE: A helpful hint... when you pull on the red backing from the 3M tape don't take it off just pull it off enough so as to protrude out the side of the spoiler. Do that at all the ends and when your ready place down carefully so its barely sticking, make sure its where you want it. Now pull the backing out from under spoiler and then press down like hell...lol

That's your two factory holes, the hole towards the front on each side will not be used. The optional hole would require you to drill between those holes and the side of the decklid.

Amen brother! That's by far the worst part!

Good tip, would've save me a ton of headaches I had during the installation process, make sure you line up your holes before you put the spoiler on!!! That 3m adhesive is strong stuff.

Hi All,

Did you all use the screws that came with the new spoiler for the existing holes, or use the original threaded studs and nuts that came off the old spoiler? I noticed that they do screw in as well.


Thanks!!!
