I got a used OEM spoiler on ebay for cheap off a wrecked Versa that happened to be the same color as mine.

I don't have the template, and the adhesive is useless. My plan is to try and create my own template using a piece of cardboard and some newspaper. I am removing the useless factory adhesive and applying 3M permanent outdoor mounting tape.

Will let you guys know how it goes!

It was $45 plus $20 shipping. With all the stuff I had to buy to make it work (tape, drill bits, etc) it was still less than a new one.

Installed! Here are some photos. Sorry for the iPad 2 low quality and the instagram pretentiousness





There is a slight gap in the back under the back part of the spoiler, and it's not as flush in the front as it could be, but I am pretty happy with it, especially considering the price, etc. I am also considering getting a new back hatch since mine is pretty damn dented and my attempts at fixing it have probably left it prohibitively expensive to repair, so if I ever do replace it I can always give the spoiler another shot...which is part of why I was pretty zealous in moving forward with it.

Looks like it was born there. Do I spy different tailights too?
Thanks!

Nope, stock taillights. Can't really see it in these pics but I do have red calipers and a red trim stripe thing below the windows. I really like the way it looks in person.

You can get that sticker for free on the love the ring website.

Didn't know the factory rear spoiler was only held on by tape. The one i got (not from the factory, but same exact look) i had to drill 4 holes for the attached bolts and nuts holding it on from the inside the hatch. I used some silicone for the drilled holes. It's holding nicely so far with no leaks.

Yeah I drilled four holes but there is also tape. Two bolts with nuts and two self deploying clips.

This one is held on only by the 4 bolts and nuts, no tape. Didn't come with any and it never occured to me that it needed any. I might have put some on but it's held on securely so i guess it doesn't really need any tape.

Yeah. The tape goes in the front and on the sides. If that makes sense?

Two nuts with bolts in the center and then two clips on the outside holes, because there is no access point for nuts inside the hatch.

yes, but it's 99.9999% unlikely our car will ever be on that track :biggrinjester: don't get me wrong, i still love that course!

this is on my husband's mazda...because he's ran his car on those tracks:

the top one is nelson ledges (near cleveland) and the bottom one is mid-ohio :thumb2: (pardon the dust)
