thats how you mount it, you drill holes in the quarter panel. you aren't going to hold it on any other way

1. super glue

HAHA, just kidding. But seriously, nothing else will work well enough. Drilling is the only option. It should come with a little drawing that you line up on your car so you know exactly where to drill. If you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, try local shops in the area.

Yes, there is double sided adhesive tape at Home Depot that we use at work and that $hit is insane! It has red paper around it, the tape itself is gray I can't remember the name of it though...

Whatever tape or glue they use on the stock one is quite amazing. When I took the one of my sti I couldn't get it off and it felt like was going to break so I though maybe there was another screw but no it was just the adhesive holding it on. I still think you need to drill holes, you never know if tape will hold if it gets cold or wet.

$100.00 and its done. The side panels on it are sanded and are ready to be painted any color. I could do it for you or you could do it yourself.

that leggy with the vane spoiler would look better if it was mounted a bit lower imo. so the top edge would be level with the roof height.

^^^ That's my Legacy up there. Thanks for the compliments!

As for anyone looking for measurements, here is what i measured before putting it on, hope it helps someone:

The mounts flair out from top to bottom of c-pillar. So at the most outer edge of the "top" of the mounts, it measures roughly 46.5". "Bottom" of the mounts it spans about 48". Holes are relative to this as well, measuring about 45.5" and 46.5" respectively.

Let me know if someone has questions, I only have info for what I did on my BE, but it may still help.

It's actually pretty close to level with the highest point of the roof.

Some side shots for reference:





This is litterally the only spot it sits flush with the c-pillar, so I'd say its a pretty good location.
