Got My SR Spoiler
I got my SR spoiler. It was somewhat cheaper than expected, but is not black... it arrived molded in grey. I assumed it would be molded in black (same as door & hatch handles, mirror nacelles) as all the SR's have a black spoiler. Nope. I then checked an SR at the dealer and indeed the spoiler is painted.
So I have to decide whether to paint ''satin black'' to match the other plastic bits on the car or ''gloss black'' to match the body. hmmm...
Also, don't bother with this if you're not comfortable drilling holes in your car, I figure four will be needed.
Notes for pics:
1) Bottom view.The black brackets fasten to car via a grommet of some kind, this is the part that did not show up. the covers just snap into the brackets.
2) Part numbers. The more expensive grommets did not arrive yet. One black and one tan grommet may not be needed, as this is what is already on the car, holding the brake light on.
3) The pegs on each side of the light, plug into existing grommets on car. (stock brake light just pops off)
4) The outer pegs plug into grommets that I will have to drill holes for.
EDIT: I think I figured out why my spoiler arrived unpainted: the part number on the spoiler is actually different from the number on the invoice. Unfortunately, I didn't notice this before I painted the sucker. The invoice Part# ends in ''H'' the actual spoiler part# ends in ''A'' (see pic)
