Default Carbon creations carb fiber STi wing HELP PLEASE!!

I have an 06 STi. Before I purchased it, someone swapped trunks and it now has a WRX trunk and spoiler. I just purchased a carbon fiber STi spoiler from carbon creations and they do not have bolts that are already mounted within the wing, but instead you screw the bolts upward with no way to put a nut on. This worries me that my new spoiler may fall off at high speeds. There are also an extra 2 bolt holes on each side of the wing. (2 holes on each side match up with the original holes) When I placed the wing on my trunk, there is a gap between the spoiler and the trunk. Would the spoiler be secure enough with just the four bolt holes from the WRX wing? If I drill the extra holes, I'm afraid the gap will cause water to enter my trunk because there is no seal around the base of the spoiler. Please help in any way possible!!
Thank you!

I might have to send pictures. I just don't know if I feel safe screwing those screws upward. There are bolts supplied but I'm not sure how to use them.. The directions I received weren't very descriptive and there was no foam around the border of the spoiler like there is on the oem. Plus, there is a gap between my trunk and the spoiler.. If I drill two new holes on each side I'm afraid it will cause a leak in my trunk.

It is a pretty straight forward part to install part but we do recomend professional installation and you might want to bring it by a bodyshop to have them review the install of the part.

There are no illustrations on how to use the bolts. The way the spoiler is set up, there is no way to use the nuts with the bolts. You can only screw the bolt upward and hope it holds. Kind of sketchy to me.

We have sold a good number of these and have not had any issues with the mounting but like i said we do recommend professional installation and i would recommend to get a quote with a local shop if you are unsure.

I'd rather not spend extra money to get it installed, I'm perfectly capable of doing it my self. It's not very hard to drill a hole and tighten a bolt. Lol. But all I'm asking is: what are the nuts for? There is no way to screw the nut onto the bolt from my perspective. So if you can enlighten me on how I can do this, that would be great. Unless the nuts are not needed for the spoiler, and just screw upward without a nut.

I did receive the wing with bolts drilled upward into the wing. I was just confused as to what the bag of extra nuts and bolts were for.
So to secure the wing, you just screw the bolts upward into the wing, as received?
