    Aero wing bolt holes

    Hey guys. I just bought an aero wing, which my car didn't come with from the factory, but I noticed the boot has three holes stamped which look like they would be for the wing? All the boots would've had that I assume. Is this where it bolts on? I'm deleting the middle pillar, so I'm not worried about the middle. My car had the Aus & NZ 200SX spoiler originally.

    Yeah that’s right, just the top two though. Maybe the bottom one is just another access point but it’s the two larger ones which are used.

    Thanks. So does that middle plastic bit in-between the bolt threads sit in a grommet or something? I was hoping I could drill the hole for that from the bottom too.

    I almost need a template or something, so I can get it perfect.

    Aero wing bolt holes

    Not sure which bit you mean, could you take a picture?

    It was ages ago that I took my wing off (needed some sealing) and mine had some rubber gaskets the same shape as the bottom of the support that went in between the boot lid and the wing supports.

    Yeah I'll take a pic after work tonight.

    Makes sense they would have little rubber rings for the bolts, as it would rattle without them. Not sure where I could get those. It's taken me months to find these aero bits locally.

    Oh yeah I see what you mean. Mine didnít have that... mine doesnít even have the hole for it so I guess my spoiler was an add on too.

    I just noticed this guys page, and he only drilled two holes as well. It's just a plastic bit, so maybe they just trim it off:

    S15 – Super Downforce | Oliver's Import Heaven
    S15 – Aero Completion | Oliver's Import Heaven

    You can see the proper holes here: Nissan Silvia S15 - Boot | : Sinergy Motorsports Used Parts Shop

    Going to be harder than I thought without having a template.

    If it helps at all, I could measure the distance my posts sit from certain points on the boot?

    That would be great, thanks.

    I was also wondering, when you open the boot, are the bolts in the exact center of those holes? I was thinking if they're right in the middle, I could get whatever socket size fits in the hole, and mark out the center like that?
