Beta Version - Installation Instructions:

Part # RS ABS -FC       1961-5 FC

Please review  these instructions in their entirety -  before you begin.

Tools required:

An electric drill, with a xxx" dia.  high speed drill bit,

A small socket or screwdriver set , ordinary  pliers.

Suggested options:

A  floor jack and a pair of safety stands; to raise and safely support the front of the vehicle  -  for much easier access.

Three spring clamps and an assistant is highly recommended.

To install:

Please note the # ?  factory mounting tabs in the spoiler

 

Mark the center of the vehicle  - between front bumper supports and  the center of the spoiler; a crayon will suffice. Place the spoiler under the vehicle;  center it and  position the spoiler snugly against the front  valance vertical  lip - making sure full contact is made across the entire front valance panel.  Re shape metal front lip with hammer and dolly as necessary. Visually check the position of  the  spoiler. Is it correctly centered ?

 

Use the spring clamps or your assistant to facilitate this.

 

When you are satisfied with the center alignment, use the factory mounting tabs, mark the two center most spots with a center punch, then drill a # ?" dia.. holes, into the vehicles body.

 

Reposition the spoiler underneath the vehicle’s front valance panel. Take a mounting screw attach the spoiler to the vehicle at the center most positions only at this time. You should not fully tighten - at this time. Starting from middle, work out to one side, marking, drilling, attaching, etc. constantly checking  the  position of the spoiler.

 

The end caps may need to be gently coerced into their  proper position. When satisfied - only then, drill two # ?" holes into the side of the vehicles lower front fender. Repeat on other side.

 

Warning: Because of the unknown and varied condition of the vehicles sheet metal - the thickness will vary and rust may have weakened the attaching areas; attach the spoiler to the body -  working from center out evenly tighten all the attaching screws using a bare  minimum of torque.

 

Alternatively you may use small bolts, lock washers, and nuts.

 

Technical Notes:

You may  wish to use an electric heat gun to slowly warm the end caps spoiler for a more precise fit.  Apply only to the back side, removed from the vehicle !

Excessive concentrations of heat will literally melt, distort, the spoiler.

Or severely burn you ! Be very careful - be very patient !
