I'll be creating an in depth HOW TO guide, on how to modify the EP3 spoiler to fit the EP2.

The problem is, I've done it once already and the finish wasn't amazing. Up close, you could see where the cuts had been made if you were to look in the small gap between the spoiler and the tailgate.

I could do with a load of pics showing exactly how the spoiler was cut, from all angles. Currently I've only seen the birds eye view, which is impossible to tell depth.

Need this ASAP as I will be doing the guide this weekend.

thanks in advance

But I could do with a few from a side angle to determine depth etc. Also a pic of how this then rests on the car (being able to see between glass and the spoiler)

Lol these are my pics :lol:
You need to cut quite a bit of, but do it bit by bit an fit it to see it on. Don't cut to much at once because you'l get a gap between the spoiler and the window if you do.

why not get a wide strip of double side tape and cover the cut out and stick the spoiler to the glass

no visible gap

If you look at the standard EP2 spoiler, you'll see that there's a step where it reaches the rear window, and thins down to sit on top of it.


Basically just create the same sort of thing like so:



I used a small hacksaw and a flat file - It's slower but easier to control for super flush fit. Just keep test fitting. Essentially you want the cut to be at the level of the rubber pads on the spoiler so that it'll all sit flat.


After that, drill a hole for the brake light in your boot lid (8mm I think), remove the clip from the brake cable (you do this by lifting up a little flap that's clipped down, then pulling), feed the cable through the hole in the boot, reattach the clip and then connect it to your existing brake light connection.


I used some heavy duty outdoor velcro between the spoiler and the window to stop it from rattling and help keep it strongly attached.

I used a Dremmel to do the same thing.

Cut, Sand, Check, Repeat
