Re: How Do I disable the automatic lights?

Re: Need install template/instructions for Aura spoiler

Well, looks like I'm striking out. No one has any words of wisdom for me?!

Re: Need install template/instructions for Aura spoiler

Yes, it has 4 threaded studs premounted on the bottom of the GM spoiler plus two strips of 3M tape.
