installing rear lip spoiler

How difficult is it to install a rear lip spoiler on a 05 EX-V6 sedan? I understand that there may be some drilling involved. Anybody install their own rear lip spoiler?

rear LIP spoiler....lip spoilers need no drilling you just tape that on with double side 3M tape. The traditional spoilers you have to put down a template that they give you when you buy your spoiler and drill holes into the trunk deck

Rear lip spoiler on a sedan. I believe you're talking about the deck lid spoiler. I do believe drilling is required for that install.

The deck lid spoiler comes with new trunk tension bars, which need to be installed or else the trunk will be top heavy. I was viewing the install manual, and it doesnt look hard, but its very time consuming.

Is the original poster referring to the rear underbody spoiler, the rear deck spoiler (wing), or the rear trunk lip spoiler?
