When I installed mine I had another person help me out. I first washed the car, and then went a step further and cleaned the surface with rubbing alcohol just in case. Then I lined the spoiler up with the red lining still on and just eyeballed how much space should be left on each side to look even.

Then I laid down the spoiler slowly, guiding it with my thumb on the back of the trunk (see in the pics above how it has a little lip, my thumb was under that and flat against the back of the trunk). As i was laying down the spoiler, I had someone else pull back the red lining while holding it up so it wouldn't accidentally stick to the truck.

The spoiler itself is really flexible, so it can curve anyway you want it. I am very satisfied with how the spacing and position turned out, especially by just eyeballing it. Some may measure, but I didn't.

Hope this helps for anyone looking to install one! I am very happy with the purchase, and for $49 painted AND shipped, you can't beat it! Thanks again to the original post!
