TRD Spoiler installation question
Do the four bolts come out of the stock spoiler or are they like glued in to it? Because I am trying to install a TRD replica wing and i have no hardware? Please let me know if i can get these out?

yeah get some bolts. How many bolts are you planning to use? cause a real TRD wing requires you to have 9 holes for the install. 4 for the bolts, 4 plastic clips, and 1 for the brake light.

I don't honestly think you need all of 'em, but if you do drill all the holes, just use screws in place of the plastic clips.

When I installed my kaminari bumper, I just replaced the plastic clips with bolts and it's much stronger, I think thumbsup

Throw them in the trash. Just get like a 4" or 5" bolt, a couple of washers and a nut from your local hardware store.. I'm sure you can figure out the rest thumbsup
