Yes, small indentations where you are supposed to drill....

I didnt use all of them though, theres a hell of alot, i think 6 at the rear and 3 at the front was what i used, only needed to drill through my OEM bumper in the 3 spots then.

OK. sweet..
first you must remove the mud flappy things in front of the font wheel and of the splash guard/plate between the front bumper and the center splash plate

just drill those holes out on the Kerscher lip - line the lip up with the lower bumper from tip to tip and just drill holes in the bumper

lastly just nut and bolt them up..

Haven't been around in a while but notice on FB that you've got it installed. Would have been happy to help...

I ended up removing the front end and doing it properly - with about a dozen bolts...

I just got one of these yesterday, and after holding it up there and looking underneath there, it sparked a few questions. So I thought i would do a search and see if I could find some information on it.

A couple questions if you guys don't mind?
1) I am assuming you have to remove all of the factory bolts in the front part of the spoiler?
2) Does the splitter use some of these existing factory holes to mount to then?
3) I noticed you mentioned that you need to remove the front splash shield from the center splash shield and finally from the vehicle, but when reinstalling the front splash shield, how does it attach if you have used the factory mounting holes for the splitter?
Thanks in advance for the help! Can not wait to get this thing on!
Shawn

Yes. But there's only 6 or so of them.

Yeah but you want to use more than just those. You'll notice that the splitter has some "circles" etched into it. Drill a hole for each of those. Some of them will line up with the pre-existing holes on the bumper, some you will need to create new ones.

Mine's basically just resting on top of the trailing edge of the bottom of the bumper - tucked in, so to speak.

Hope that helps.

That helps tremendously!!
I assumed I would have to drill new holes for the majority of them. I have already pre-drilled the splitter.
The part that was throwing me, was how do you fasten that front splash shield after the splitter is installed, but I understand now that you in stall it with just the rear bolts and tuck it in there in the front.
Thanks again! - Shawn

Getting ready to install this sometime over the weekend, and was wondering. In addition to the bolts, did you use any 3M tape as well? Thanks!
