Post Fiberglass Aerowing

I just picked up a rear spoiler for $450. All it comes with are 4 bolts. Anyone that had them installed did you make a gasket to go between the wing and the hatch?? It is not sold with any or do you connect it as is....??

Re: Fiberglass Aerowing

It has been a while since I did mine, but I do not remember any gasket between the wing and hatch. I reused the hardware from the original wing to attach the new unit to the rear of the hatch lid. The new wing came with screws that are used to mate with the stock clips along the window frame and I remember it was tedious getting those just right.

Re: Fiberglass Aerowing

The old wing was rubber so there was no gasket.

Yes, 4 bolts. 1 on each end with 2 bolts for the high back stop light in the middle which is attached to the wing which is bolted to the hatch.

Re: Fiberglass Aerowing

I just bought mine from Hawks a few months ago. It came with a gasket.

Makes sense for fiberglass. The old one was basically all rubber. I did not see a gasket when I told the old one off.
