Has anyone retro fitted a tailgate spoiler?

Just wondering how you attached it? The spoiler has 2 removable threaded locating pins on the feet but I’ve considered just bonding it on with tiger seal so I don’t have to drill any holes. The foot on each side has quite a large contact area so I think it would be ok.

If you’ve had one off before what do the pins press into on the tailgate? I’m guessing some sort of plastic cup but my googling has came up blank.

Not that it helps much but my Junior's spoiler is bolted from above.


Do it right - use Hammerite

I did!

Was straight forward enough, get your spoiler and put something "creamy" on the bolt holes underneath, I used Polish.
Next place the spoiler on the tailgate carefully and then lift it off, the polish leaves two marks that you can drill into.

Drill a hole large enough to get the thread of the bolt through on the outside of the tailgate, then on the inside drill a hole that is large enough to get a socket into (10mm I used).

To fill in the hole on the inside I used two grommets to neaten things up, once I've gotten mine resprayed I'll probably tigerseal around it too.

I'm interested to see how Suzuki do it though :huh:
