    Any thoughts before I drill holes? I think placement looks good, but I do see some farther forward and creeping up over the license plate more.

        I moved it forward some, but that gap on the driver’s side is funky, it doesn’t lay flat. It’s definitely better forward. It puts the aft end of of the spoiler is even with the edge of the valance. Sound correct?

        That’s because those reproduction front spoilers are far more rigid , especially the larger front edge

              It looks like forward and nose up some. Is there any way you could clearance the body side of the chin spoiler to make it slide up more snug onto the body? You wouldn't be able to see the clearancing once installed I don't think. Even aftermarket those chin spoilers are bad ass

                I think I’ll move it half inch or so forward. It doesn’t look like anything is preventing it from moving up, just a little funky out of the mold. Thanks!

                I took my front valance off and fitted the spoiler with the valance upside down. Then, when I was happy with it, I taped it in place and drilled the holes.

                      Yup, same here. Pull the valance and lay it out so it fits to your liking.
