I have mine painted and sitting at the body shop. Been too busy to get around to going for the install. Mine is also sgm, but with 07 redout tails. hopefully it looks as good as that

Yup had some free time one day sanded and polished it out. SGM FTW!

Installed mine using plastic adhesive, double sided tape and some screws. BUT last night Miami had crazy rain and some flooding, mine got yanked off the bumper and even half the bumper got pulled off the car. Looks like the puddles were too much for it. RIP Rear diffuser, now I have crazy glue marks and holes from the screws on my rear bumper. Ima have to get another just to try and cover that up..... AAAAAAHhhhhhhh #venting

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.
