Need help w/ Rear roof spoiler!!!!!

I have 93 prelude and i just recently bought a rear roof spoiler which i thought wuz pretty kool cuz i havent seen a prelude w/ one.
(ill post up pics as soon as i get a chance)

I bought it at a decent price but the only thing that
sux is that it doesnt come w/ any bolts or nuts or anything...
just the wing itself...!

the wing lines up right on top of the rear glass and i have no idea how
to put it on to my car...:/

Some people have told me to use double sided tape...but i think
its a bad idea cuz ill get my spoiler easily ripped off and stolen...

I've thought of using silicone but it comes down to the same conclusion
as the double sided tape!:(

Is there such thing as a wing kit that i could buy or am i going to
have to make holes into the glass which is something i dont want to do.

Any ideas, comments, or suggestions????
Thanx....

Re: Need help w/ Rear roof spoiler!!!!!

How about using L shaped brackets
mount em on from the wing and tuck it behind weather stripping on rear glass
Just my simple thought!

Re: Need help w/ Rear roof spoiler!!!!!

get some quarter panel adhesive. grind to bare metal where the wing will be. apply quarter adhesive. I promise you that will NOT come off. that sh!t is stronger than welds. I've put on quite a quarters using it

No problem
when you say L bracket key, are you referring to the "allen" key
that you turn to tighten the bolt or something else??? then yes
