hi, i just offered it up dry [ without the bonder ] marked it with some tape or chalk on the roof and the spoiler, then apply the bonder / glue line up the tape and when your happy with it ,use some masking tape to hold it in place for a few hours , not too long or the masking tape will be a bas,,,d to get off

hope this helps

yeah you should find that the lead edge of spoiler lines up with the edge of the door, I did use the screws which means drilling! but I do believe some people only used the sikaflex to bond it

Had to have mine sprayed, so guy spraying it will fit it as well, screws go in the bin don't drill holes in your van m8

mine isnt screwed on,i was worried about it,but it aint moved in almost a year,so i wouldnt drill holes in your van,

just make sure you have a stong silicone gun and arms like popeye to get the sealent out of the tube.
