I'll wait for E to chime in on that since I think he used to have one (or was it the 40?)

As for getting the brake light to work, I think a wire runs through the spoiler. You have to run that wire through the trunk lid and splice it into the wiring for your brake lights. That's what I did and it worked for me.

Re: Help! Installing OEM Spoiler

the spoiler has 5 drills.. and theyre all shown under the trunk with lil dimples. its 2 on each side and one fatter hole in the right side for the power on the third brake light. it was pretty easy with the installation manual that they give away from honda. although i heard that you can find one online somewhere

Edit: here you go... Merry xmas

Don't splice, if you unhook your wire from the light on the rear deck, take the wire out of the wire clamps and run it to the right side of your truck, its enough wire in there to run it back to the right side and if your stock OEM spolier already has the wire in there and its not cut it should be enough to plug the connectors together without splicing. Plus looks more factory, but now you'll have a whole in your rear deck like mine

Still looking for the SH rear deck. (Plus still waiting on the money as Chirstmas bled me dry.)

Do you have a 5th? (your sig shows a 4th) Just wondering because my spolier light wasn't hooked up when I bought the car, the rear deck brake light was still hooked up. I pulled the spolier found the wire inside the hole and pulled it out ran it as close as I could then pulled the wire from the rear deck light and took the wire out of a couple plastic clamps and they reached.
