You don't have to drill at all...Under the Hood in the "skeleton" there are lil gromets, just take those out. Place your hoodspoiler on the Hood w/ Double sided tape. Then use self-tapping screws from under the Hood where you took the gromets out...There should be 4

What do you think you are doing with the self-tapping screws??? You are DRILLING them through your Hood rofl

ei; There are no holes in the TOP of your Hood to accommodate for the hoodspoilers - thus, you need to drill through with the self-tapping screws

Wait, what do you mean? Because my TRD Hood spoilers have 3 locations on each spoiler that already has a nut fitted into it all ready for the screw to go into. Mine didn't need self tapping screws, it came with the hardware, you just have to drill the right size hole in the Hood...except I lost the hardware for it or my dad did, so Idk what the shop did.

When I hear Drill, I think of a Drill bit cutting a hole for a screw to go through. Self-tappers eliminate the "drilling" process. This is what I do for a living, there IS a difference

E-mail r_23 @hotmail.com...His name is Rudy and he makes ALL KIND OF Carbon Fiber stuff for our Celi's. Sometimes he takes awhile to reply since he's always going to Japan and stuff, but he has great quality stuff

idk...I am not sure who bought theirs from the ecelica store which gets them from thelostrican...
mine are horrible and do not lie flush on it Hood...making it impossible to drill through and hold it down without the fiberglass cracking.
