I dug out this thread to ask you for some pics of the car with the ducktail spoiler and I see its still WIP. I have seen it on one or two Civics here in Chennai. I could be wrong but from the face of it doesn't seem to warrant a drilling job.

Btw, good work with the grille and mesh there. Do you have pics of them after installation?

well the grill is on the spoiler i still have to put. still figuring how to install it. as you can see no one has bothered to pitch in opinions ill have to do some R&D myself as usual. oh well will post pics when done.

IMO, if the lip spoiler is lighter, you can just use a combination of double-sided 3M tap, along with an industrial strength glue.. drilling is only recommended if you are installing the heavy Type R spoiler..

Civic looks sexy! And "happy" smiling with this grill combo!

How did you finally put the spoiler on? Tape?

Your car's looking awesome Jesal.

For waxing, I would recommend Rhyme & Rhythm or Master Polishers to you. Look their contact info up in the Team-BHP Directory.
