Install pics coming in a few days.

My investment in just the spoiler kit with tax and shipping was $356. So at $399 installed by Honda. I recommend everyone to have it installed at your Honda Dealer. But for your curiosity I'm going to share a few steps. Do keep in mind your Dealers will have also very little experience in this type of installation. ?? So inspect the area of the install for possible installation mistakes. ?‍♂

I installed one of these on Thursday. It is pretty straight forward. The only tricky part for a DIY’er will be installing the jack nuts since you need a special tool. Also, definitely need someone else to hold the spoiler while you press the legs down into place. You want everything to line up perfect and not be cocked.

I was reading the install instructions and read use touch up paint for the scratches. Was thinking of having one installed until I read that.

You only need touch up paint because of the hole saw. You’re only suppose to go in 4mm deep otherwise it will touch the vehicle body under the plastic piece you’re drilling. You cannot see this from the outside.

I didn’t need touch up paint on a couple holes because I was going slow, and if I did, it was only a small dab so that it won’t rust.

Dealer calls for 1.2 hours installed, could be more or less depending on your experience

Dealers are going about 2hrs if it’s customer pay after vehicle purchase.

You got it. I am planning to "Not" use the Jacknuts as I don't have the tool. Looking into stainless washers and locknuts with removing the interior trim. Those jacknuts look really cheap and could have future issues. Plus if you strip one out? You're Ffffffff udged??
