This is an option if you don't feel like dealing with getting the OEM unit painted.

New spoiler comes unpainted so I'm just gonna rip the cores out of the risers on it (may as well replace both if I have to take it off again anyway) and keep my original wing.

Good to know, I don't plan on getting anything painted though. Just gonna pull the riser cores out of the new spoiler and swap them into mine, no need to paint any of it.

It is molded into the plastic. No worries on repair. Find a bolt same size. Get a Dremmel and grind out the old bolt. Bond in the new bolt using a good epoxy. My suggestion is Hysol EA9309. Or for ease of access JB Weld should work.

That spoiler doesn’t have the inner cores you’d need. You’ll need OEM.

Finished the install today with the help of my dad @jmark. Everything went relatively smoothly and thanks to @tehShirt for the different approach to the installation.

Instead of attaching the risers to the spoiler then bolting the assembly to the trunk I attached the risers to the trunk loosely then sat the spoiler on top adjusted everything till the holes lined up and tightened everything down. This method seemed to eliminate some problems other guys have mentioned.

Overall I am very happy with the finished product and will have HQ pictures once we get some good weather/wash the car. Only downfall I have is now the aggressive look needs a front lip or splitter to match.

Looks awesome on WRB!

I also have the same issue. I'd wanted a lip before but now it definitely needs one to round out the car

Spoiler looks so nice in the rearview now, especially with the Intec high mount brake light and PWJDM shelf with the brake light delete to clean up the view.

Color match isn't perfect, risers are definitely whiter than the car, though that might be due in part to the risers not being waxed yet (and being fresh paint vs. a year old) so maybe waxing and a bit of time will bring it closer to a match. It's not something that stands out unless you're right next to the car looking at them though, and even then I feel like it only stands out in certain lighting conditions (and maybe even then just because I'm looking for it, hard to say how noticeable it would be to someone not checking out the color match on that particular part).

New spoiler should be coming in on Tuesday, hoping to swap out the parts I need on Wednesday. I never did get that broken stud/nut out of the trunk but it's stopped rattling around now, must have wedged itself in somewhere. Maybe when I have the spoiler off on Wednesday I'll see if I can shake it loose and get it out.

Again, thanks Stephen for doing such a wonderful job with these.

I think it was well worth it.

That combo would rock!

Ya, white is hard to match even when the pros are blending it so painted separately will usually show some difference. Waxing may help but they should even out after weathered a bit.

Drambeenie Risers MEGATHREAD.

I haven't seen anyone with a CWP car get the matte black option. I installed mine today, love them! The risers are almost a perfect color match for the wing.

Were you using a 10mm socket wrench when the bolt sheared?

Just got my risers in, and hope to get them installed this weekend. Is there a definite answer which method would be best to use for installation?
