DIY for Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler?

I heard that the installation of the CF rear spoiler is different from the regular spoiler. Does anyone have the DIY for the Carbon Fiber spoiler?

Thanks!

yes it requires a glue that you put on the spoiler first then you simply put it on the car then wipe the excess off. After that you can not wash it or take it threw a wash at all. No water if possible basically. You cant do anything to it for 2 days and it takes 6 hours top dry

Thanks. Im going to use the 3M tape to install my ACS spoiler when I get it. I used 3M tape on my last car for the spoiler and it stayed on with hurricane winds with no problem.

cf spoiler is hollow......it might be very difficult to use 3M tape....to secure tightly.

betalink k1 is your best bet..........

I concur; I used betalink on my non-CF spoiler too, that piece of tape it comes with it not really enough to keep it bonded.

3M tape can be found at any hardware store.....

but don't use it on your cf spoiler......regular spoiler is okay.

where do i get the CF spoiler? I personally hate the color pattern, but luv the shape. Simple, looks stock, but it has that small opening in the middle, just a little different. I want to buy one painted TiAG.
