I was trying to ask this on scoobymods since CsabaH has photos but I'm in no man's land: Can't send email, messages, or start new threads.
Anyway, I'm curious about the location of the first hole (that needs to be drilled from the inside) Is this it? Do you just drill in the center of the circle the arrow is pointing to?

Yep. Drill a 1/8" or small hole in that circle and use it to line up the templates. Then measure the inner hole spread and compare it to the spread on the spoiler. It doesn't take much to be way off. The final hole will take up over half that circle, and sometimes it wont be dead center. That's why I say start with a tiny drill bit.

Drilling that first hole thru the hatch is pretty easy, compared to getting that paper template on correctly! :icon_eek: My upper holes were off a bit... doesn't take much to have the template off a bit. No matter, a slight bit of filing & it fit perfectly. You can view my installation here. :smile:
