You'll need screws and a crap load of tape. Theres two screws on each corner and two in the middle. Had to have help from two other people.

If you are looking for a permanent solution and not worry about using a crap load of tape that will eventually come off you can use this and bond the diffuser to your bumper which I did, minus I also drilled some holed underneath and put screws and fiberglassed it but the plastic fuzor will do just fine alone and you don't need to be a professional body man to use it http://www.lord.com/products-and-sol...roduct.xml/311

Are you in Santa Monica? I think I may have sold you that roof spoiler? Car has come a long way if you happen to be that guy. Also, you never left me a trader score! lol

i dont think you can find them anywhere else. There might be a few laying around in people's garages. Mine is installed on my car.

How many of these did it take to do the whole diffuser?

Looks great TravyTrav.

Glad you were able to find a body shop that was willing to work on it for you. I had two body shops turn down the install of a Wald & MyRide replica. Fitment for both was a bit off out of the box but definitely workable...some body shops just don't like a challenge I guess. Wish we had more tuner/modder friendly shops where I live!

Used PL Premium Construction Polyurethane adhesive + 3M tape (for initial adhesion & holding) to secure the wing on. The thing is going nowhere (and I don't plan on ever taking it off).

Used nothing but screws to secure the diffuser on: Two above each of the exhaust tips, one inside and just above where each of the exhaust tips are, and one where the skinny parts wrap under the bumper just behind the rear wheels. Recessed the screws, and WAS going to fill them in but after seeing everything installed I decided to leave them - kinda like the rivet-like look they give. Anyway, I used screws because there are harsh winters up here in Toronto, and I drive my car year round (garage parked though) so didn't want any possibility of 3M tape failing on me.

I used gunmetal Plasti Dip on the diffuser (after getting it painted Obsidian), and Tamiya PS-31 Smoke paint on the emblems (black pearl replicas ).

Shout out to awzdusty for selling me the diffuser on these forums! Great guy to deal with.
