Well me and Steve K off the forum have just returned from picking up the pieces of steve's spoiler off the a500 bypass oops

we fitted it yesterday with some bonding stuff then today at bout 60-70mph it decided to come flying off! the vid is funny..

Video below ;)

Does anyone know where he can get a new one or have one for sale?

What did you end up using to hold it on, and more importantly did you let it dry properly??

I have used the silkaflex stuff to hold arch trims on to the 205 rallycar and they absolutely refused to come off, I had to gradually cut the stuff away...

would be better drilling the boot and use the two original bolts on a gti spoiler as well as bonding it

You sure you was doing 60-70mph, the video sound may say different very happy

maybe that was kph ;)

we both agree'd that the "bonding stuff similar to no more nails" would hold it as we allowed it 12 hours to dry but it obviously didn't. The ironic thing was that we were on our way returning from the shop with some stronger glue stuff that would have done the job perfectly but it didn't hold on long enough. As Steve say's "SHIT HAPPENS"
