Need a spolier installed

i picked up a spoiler at pick n pull last time was there and i need it installed. does any one know a place where i could get it done cheap in San Antonio?

Theres nothing better than having a lower roof line than a civic, and a longer wheelbase than a van.

Then all you need is a tape measure, a drill, and a socket set. (and good nerves. I'd get real shakey drilling holes in perfectly good sheet metal)

Measure where you want it mounted (Measure at least three times). mark where the holes should be. then drill said holes. mount the spoiler (should be some type of sealer or gasket between the spoiler "legs" and the deck) and bolt it down.

You might want to put down some masking tape where you are going to are going to drill for a few reasons:
1. It makes it easier to mark where you want to drill
2. In case the drill slips, you won't scratch your paint
3. To keep the metal shards from the drill from swirling around and scratching your paint.

You also need a small hole saw for your drill. Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
