Front Spoiler Fixings


Recommended Posts

I had a difficult time taking the spoiler off of the car as all of the ‘captive nuts’ had rusted with the bolts. I ended up drilling the bolts out from the inside of the light pods, and then taking the captive nuts off of the spoiler.

Anyone know where I can get some new ones or suggestions on alternative ways to re fix the spoiler back onto the car?

thanks T

I think you are referring to the side bumper fixings.

I made tapped an aluminium plate and epoxy'd it to the underside of the bumper, as seen at the top in the picture below.image.jpeg.e5183f52e6629d6a9a3cd46240488a81.jpeg

You can get Spire clips ( Chimney nuts) easily from fleabay as a kind of direct replacement.
