wel the way i fitted my was to take the bonnet  off and turn it over (be careful not to dent it doing this)
i then lined it up ready and clamped it down using mole grips
then  using a 0.5 drill bit drill wholes throw the spoiler and in to the under side of the bonnet .
using sort srews (10mm or shorter) srew it to the spoiler and bonnet BUT make sure you dont use long srews as you will go throw the outer skin .

then your spoiler is fitted . if you want to glue it as wel just put the bond on befor you srew it down

i wouldnt use fibre glass mate as its a bitch to work with .use any good body filler (easy1 or top stop gold )to blend it in then primer then paint
