Default STI Spoiler on 2016 WRX Install Help

Hey everyone, I've been on here since Sept. '15, but this is my first real thread.

I've decided to get the OLM STI pre-painted spoiler from Subispeed for my '16 WRX. From what other members have posted, the install isn't too hard; just getting enough courage to drill into factory parts.

My main concern is weatherproofing/sealing the new spoiler. What products would be good for this application. Any assistance on this aspect would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Im thinking about this too for my 15. I would use a light amount of silicone sealant they sell at a boat store like a west marine or alike. What I want to know is the low profile spoiler removable? I don't want to have two on the car, meaning the wry low profile spoiler and sit wing.

If you remove the lip spoiler you'll want to fill in the holes it'll leave behind.

I've seen the lip/sti spoiler combo before (and for the life of me, I can not find it now), and it looked pretty sweet!

***Edit: Here's an actual thread the same as this one. @bluegoldwrx, this is the picture I was referring to.

Update:

Emailed SubiSpeed Thursday night and heard back from Maddy Friday afternoon.

Buying the spoiler from SS comes with all gaskets/weatherproofing for anyone interested. Also picked up a touch-up paint kit for the install. Should have shipment details tomorrow or Tuesday.

I'll also be leaving the factory lip on as I think it's definitely a unique look.

Get some matching touch-up paint and go around the drilled holes to cover any exposed metal from the bit. Also go up in bits. Pilot to finish.

Got mine done! Love the look of both the lip spoiler with the wing. Good color match, no leaks after a good wash. Install took about an hour and a half just because we lined up everything and took our time but could have been done faster.

Do you need another set of trunk springs to support the additional weight of the new wing?

They're not necessary, the trunk will still open with the button by itself. Closing the trunk just gotta be more careful as it wants to slam with the extra weight.

That being said I'll be picking up some
Sti springs eventually, but for now don't need them.
