Anyone done this. I know it comes from a place where 15 holes were drilled in the boot. Is it possible to use current holes from GT and maybe some adhesive then get rid of the protruding clips that are on the ducktail. 

 

In US im seeing people just get a Nismo hatch or drill the boot and is a pain to line up. So ppl tend to avoid these and get a like for like ducktail instead...

 

I can see where the two screws go the screws and some 3M tape adhesive should do.l right? They seem similar to where the GT spoiler screws would be

Thats my old car! But not a pic that i took 🤔 And the roof has been wrapped now. Where did you find that picture? Would be interested to know how its doing…

 

So the story behind it was i originally had a MK1 Nismo spoiler on that car, then bought a MK2 Nismo, but much preferred the MK1 spoiler. As there are additional holes etc. I decided it would be easier to just swap the whole bootlids over. So thats what i did…

Thats what a DRL lights seller said they do in US. Could get a trunk lot of headache though. Surely I just need 2 screws and 3M and shave the other clips off or remove them. I might not bother with this. 

 

Im seeing not many people want the mk2 spoiler due to fitment issues

Yeh i believe when i looked into it years ago the MK2 has one extra clip right at each end (which you could just remove/shave off), and then the 4 clips along the bottom, which you could just remove/shave and use 3M tape instead. Cant see there being any issues at all really.

 

Its odd there would be fitment issues due to it being the same boot lid and the same main bolt and clip locations.

The screw locations look to be in the same position at the side of the lights. Yeah would be better than drilling any holes in the boot. Thanks, ill see how it goes

lol why you getting rid...More people want the mk1 spoiler 👀

I'm one of the rare people that prefer the subtle look of the mk2 nismo spoiler, think I'm just getting old 😊

Id have to sleep on it as theres a claim its worth £1126 but not in demand?! lol. How much would you sell yours for though. Theres a few imitations around including carbon for £400-£600 👀

As mine is a genuine nismo made by Autech for Nissan it's arguably worth more than the mk2 nismo spoiler, however it's worth is as much as people are willing to pay. Just the upper blade is listed on z1 motorsports website for $1100. I'm not even sure you can buy a complete mk1 spoiler anymore unless you buy a replica . 

   It was just a thought regarding swapping, I'll probably regret it if I did 😁

I agree with you on this👌 referring to the rear wing and not your age
