Cleaning Surfaces for Lip Spoiler Install

Recommended Posts

OK, for the umpteenth time I'll be reinstalling my RS lip spoiler. Resilient piece as it's been knocked off and run over many times. :o

I have 3M double-sided tape (and new rivets) for the install. What's good to clean the mating surfaces of the lip and the body, Goo Begone!, mineral spirits, isopropyl (sp?) alcohol, ...?

I've used 3M Adhesive Remover for that job. If you get it very clean, it really will stick better. Be careful with fumes and skin contact to the 3M Adhesive Remover....it has a lot of xylene in it. It even eventually rots out latex gloves.....use nitrile gloves if you have them.

Last time I re-afixed my spoiler lip, after re-gluing and riveting, I "sealed" the seam between the bumper and spoiler with a long length of tough black electrical tape. My hope was that it would keep out a lot of the gravel and sand that can jamb into the joint between the spoiler and bumper and help "pry" it open at speed. It seems to be working.
