    2012 Coupe spoiler install

    I ordered a prepainted spoiler for my coupe- here are some picts of the install. I bought from Sportwing on ebay- $186 painted silver and it looks great and the paint is perfect (I restored Corvettes for 35 years). It comes with bolts but I used VHB tape (some is already on the spoiler- I added a few pieces). I hated the 3rd brake light sticking up from the deck- this is the cure. One pict is of a weight in the middle to bring the VHB into contact with the lid BTW, Gene

    Quality work and match. Ugly product. Reminds me of the sedan rear wing and why buy the coupe to take cues from the 4 door? De-sexifies the car.

    I like the look of the spoiler. Nice job. I want to install a similar spoiler on my 2014 Performance Coupe. I really don't want to drill for mounting and like the idea of the VHB tape. Any problems with durability, car washes, etc? I live in the northeast and my cars are subjected to frequent car washes during the winter months.

    I am seeing a lot of gap at the left end by the tailight. If I were you, I would use the screws as well. You don't want water going underneath the spoiler.
