    Hey all,
    I got my s3 spoiler 2 day, looks very nice

    Now the s3 has 4 bolts

    What do you think i should do, cut the bolts off, or go somwhere and have the spoiler actaully bolted to the car ?

    If it is glued on, if som1 wanted 2 can then thief the thing.

    Spoiler should be on in a couple of weeks, going spain /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I think most folks simply cut the bolts and glue it on, however, that way I think it only holds to about 220 kph, which I think is why it's bolted on the S3. BUT, to bolt it on, you'll need to have hole drilled in your hatch, and that's not kosher for most people /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    I would use silicone and cut off the bolts.

    If you use enough of the stuff it won't come off for sure.

    Just make sure you leave it at least a day to cure properly.

    That may you can remove it if you have to.

    The silicone I use is the stuff used for fitting windows. My brother fit windows for a living so I get loads of the stuff for free.

    Any how, you want the "low-modulus" stuff. Preferable clear in colour as this is loads stronger than "high-modulus" stuff and the bathroom selant type.

    I've used this many a time for lots of different projects. you can use it for sealing gaskets on engines holes in trim blah blah.........sounds sad, but I love this stuff!! :)

    The type I use is made by "Wurth" you can get it from window fitting places. Or decent DIY shops.
