  3. Nice update I finally got myself a genuine STI spoiler in world rally blue! So today I fitted it,not a straight forward job as the wrx spoiler is held on with 4 bolts and the STI held in with 10. So abit of template making,drilling bonding is required. Took a few photos while I whent through the stages. First stage remove wrx spoiler 4 10mm bolts and unclip the brake light wire,then it pops off. http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/04/04/97a5061d68cb63ea6e7307b8f10a9af4.jpg' alt='URL>'>http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/04/04/767916b91d100c96e56112b9285f9a4e.jpg' alt='URL>'> STI vs WRX Spoiler http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/04/04/232336c65d48431818201f279be5c0af.jpg' alt='URL>'> I made my template by pressing down on the spoiler studs with some cardboard then cut it down to shape. http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/04/04/155c9fd533f3d7d3ef00a60ffddc89b7.jpg' alt='URL>'> Once iddone that I bolted it to the boot using the 4 bolt holes that line up where the wrx spoiler attached. I then started the drilling process! Starting at 4mm working upto 10mm sized holes. http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/04/04/5bd7a70486f5bc9f7a132d269bd6d6f4.jpg' alt='URL>'> http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/04/04/7afef40a70110af11bb472a57f96ac8e.jpg' alt='URL>'> Once all the holes were drilled and I checked the spoiler sat nicely I ran double sided sticky tape around the outside of the spoiler just to help it seal,leaving gaps where there is room for rain water to drain,once I'd done this I then applied rust prevention to the drill holes to stop them from rusting,and also used sealant around them to seal water from getting into the boot. Once this was done I bolted the spoiler on and used loctite thread lock to prevent the bits coming undone and hey presto looks how a subaru should now! http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/04/04/028d0605136ddcee688ebb887e166528.jpg' alt='URL>'> http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/04/04/898efd212b28dcfbbd3a1f06970e55cd.jpg' alt='URL>'> Better photos to come when I take some with the big camera.took around 2 hours in total.
