Default HELP: How to mount a 2006 STI roof spoiler on 2005 STI (pics)

*please save your negative comments on what you think it will look like* thank you

I am 85% sure and I wanted to know if there is any .pdfs on how to do it even from the factory. This is an aftermarket one that I got from here from a guy from CA I mocked it up and fits nice. It is Carbon fiber and I had the ends painted CGM to match the car and all of the gel coat sanded down and shot with clear coat. I have mounting hardware which it came with and want to pick up some silicone as well.

Pics:

After paint and clear

mocked up before paint

bottom on end caps nut+washer 2 holes on bottom of each cap

hardware included

closer up


Now with that said I went and took numerous pics one a stock one on a 2006 STI for reference for the install.
I am going to put it on with my friend who has more experience then me on this upcoming Saturday (then to subi vs evo in etown)


Can anyone who has one give me some advice on what I might need or ANYONE have any instructions that
I could reference to or a tutorial with pictures? Im 100% doing this and no turning back I just need some guidence. Thank you

so, on the unit you have, the bolts thread (up) into the bottom of the end cap piece?

that is different that the factory piece.

in any case, did you see this thread?

I have some pictures in there, and some other folks talk about doing theirs as well.

me and my friend did this on both our cars, it was actually really easy. just make sure its lined up straight then the scary part of drilling the holes. i havnt seen the one your about to put on with the kind of mounts it has. that one might be a little more tricky. if it comes with a sticky pad to put on the underside then put it on there so it just sticks to the car. like line the holes up, then place the wing down on the car and then lift the wing off and the sticky pad should be on the car where the holes would be and that creates a kind of template.

sorry i dont have any pics that are closer. my car is a bugeye or was a bugeye.

i mean take the black rubber pads and line them up with your spoiler holes on both sides. tape it to the spoiler so it doesnt move. but at the same time put tape on the top of it so it hangs out over the sides. that way when you put the spoiler down on your car you can remove the tap that is holding it against your spoiler and just press the tap that you put on top of the black rubber piece on your car so it stays there. that should give you the exact holes to where you want to drill. try that. i hope you can understand that.

I did mine last week and man was it a b**CH!! Evoklr said it best, cause thats what i did. And you have to get longer screws!! Better yet, get studs, thats what i did. 60mm i believe, nuts and washers. I ended up using only the top holes and 3M double sided tape for the bottom screws, since the wing was so light. I've hit 85mph and its still on. and very sturdy. Good luck man!!

If you can find some transfer punches, it will make picking up the holes extremely easy. You put them in the holes, get it lined up, and tap it with a hammer and it makes a small pin prick indent on the metal so you know where to drill.

Honestly man, like 9 hours, two of those hours were from going to Home Depo and Do It Center a few times to get longer studs.

yeah mine took about 4-5 but an hour or so was wasted cus i didnt want to drill into my own car. i did it with my friends car and i had no problem drilling into his, haha. but yea i also had to go to the hardware store and get longer bolts and nuts and washers. i didnt use any silicone at all and no leaks. ive had my car up to 90ish and its still there.

dsolis- nice looking car. i like the look of the vane and the wrx spoiler.

Well I bought a Carbon Fiber Roof spoiler most commonly seen on the 06-07 STI's but this one was 1 piece over the multiple piece from the factory. Its made by NRG and I got a killer price on it. I didnt like the all CF so I had the ends painted CGM and all the gel coat sanded down and then shot with clear. ($90 for paint and clear and everything, that guys the my new paint guy)

The install itself took 9 hours and I know your thinking jesus man what the hell what wrong? EVERYTHING Its not easy drilling into your C pillers knowing if you **** up its not like a fender and you can get another one. The bolts went from the inside up and were at a angle so walking the drill bit was hard not to do and drilling the out shell, then the inner frame then the interior frame was a real pain in the ass. In the end it came out awesome.

Thanks again Ed (ekw) for helping me out and do most of the drilling and opening your house for my girlfriend to lounge in for the 9 hours we worked to get this one!


Getting everything lined up took hours


The sound it made was disgusting


Drilling is not that fun when its your car in which case have someone else do it.



Putting the hardware was the most fun when we realized it was the wrong kind.


Hardware on the inside of the C pillars, had to do some adjusting to get everything to fit in.


End result


Compared to a 06 roof spoiler Ed put on his 04 STI


The only front shot I have showing it doesnt hang above the roof (taken at etown before gates open)


What do you think?
