This link had the most gen.

Dental Floss works extremely well when removing the old spoiler and I used Genkem General Purpose Glue Remover instead of Goo Gone, which we don't get this side.
The link advocates using 3M Tape to fit the CF spoiler but I used Betalink. It is alot more difficult than the double sided tape but I believe the fit is better and worth the extra effort.
If done right the glue doesn't allow any moisture to collect between the Spoiler and the Boot.
I saw a few guys mention that their spoilers have some movement in the centre section however with the Betalink my spoiler seems to be very ridgid, I believe its because the better bond afforded by the Betalink.

Hope this helps.

+1. Did the same with betalink, couldn't efford any risk because of a less than perfect solution. Having said that betalink by nature is a "permanent" solution, and when (if) you want to remove it you will probably break something in order to do it. For some it may be something to consider as well.
