Thanks I will check.... :roll:
Tropical, I haven't installed one on the Cube so don't know the specifics. But I have installed factory rear roof / hatch spoilers on several other makes and models and it can vary from make and model. But for the most part the spoiler should come with a template for drilling holes if it mounts with studs (most do because of the down force caused by air flow). Sometimes the inside of the roof and / or hatch will have access holes to get to the studs, some don't have these access holes and you will have to drill a hole then get plastic plugs to cover the holes when finished. I usually get these from Lowes.

If your application requires holes for studs and your roof / hatch doesn't have access holes. My suggestion is, when drilling for the studs from the outside, use a long bit and drill through to the inside. The hole left on the inside will serve as a pilot hole and properly locate the inside stud access hole. Then use a step drill to open up the inside access hole to the proper size. After installing the spoiler use a plastic plug to close up the access hole. Even if your spoiler mounts with studs, the mounting surface should also use double sided tape to aid in mounting as well as acting as a water seal. - Dan

Mine came with studs. However, It was an issue because of the angle of the studs and how they would affect the liner. The body shop I use removed the studs and installed it with industrial epoxy and sealer. Two weeks ago the covered parking at my apartment collapsed because of snow. My spoiler punched through the metal roof! I have $2,000.00 damage but the spoiler just needs a re-paint.

Wow sorry to heart about the damage to your Cube, I guess the spoiler is really tough, and thanks for the advice everyone...
