Hey guys,

So I went on ebay and bought a 3m spoiler for my 300. The problem is that it comes straight, and i need to bend it. I have some ideas on how to do it but I wanted to hear from you all first. My idea was a couple clamps and a heat gun. What do you think? Thanks!

What?? You need to bend it yourself?? Got a link to see it or a pic? No offence but that sounds a little hokey and a tad bit difficult to get a nice fit. Was no prefab OEM spec ones on there? If your stuck on that one I would be really careful with the heat gun and bending.

Is it made out of polyeurethane? Can you bend it easily in your hands to match the curve? If so lay down the 3M tape n the trunk and apply the spoiler to the trunk starting from one side to the other peeling the tape back as you go.

hello, sorry I should have been more clear. Yes it is plyable. Its very flexible and can bend pretty easily. I bought it cause I wasnt about to drop a huge chunk of change on an OEM part. But yes its flexible, I just wasnt sure if the 3m tape would be enough to hold it in place while I bend it to fit the curve of the trunk.

Should be fine but if its cold it may not stick well. Heat up the part and the clean surface with a blowdryer. 3m tape will bond better with the surface when its nice and toasty! Like Montreal said start one one side and peal as you go.

Edit- Just saw you live in AZ and its pry warm but make sure you near a 65+ degree day.

Then you're good to go. Mines been on the trunk for 3 years and through one winter. Make sure you clean the trunk and spoiler surfaces with denatured alcohol before you apply the tape. It will never come off.
