So, I’m not comfortable with drilling holes into my beloved car. I have a few things I want to get installed with the Spoiler being the biggest. Can anyone recommend someone in the Plano/Frisco are that can do this type of work?

I installed my spoiler this past weekend. I had no problems and you won't either if you just follow the instuctions and be anal as hell. It was not that bad. You just need some self confidence.

So I got mine off of E-Bay and it didn't come with instructions :( Any advice?

Print this out and use it.
Bolt-On Application STEP-by-STEP
STEP 1.
After opening and inspecting your rear spoiler you can begin the installation. Notice that the LED light and the pedestal gaskets come pre-installed from the factory (pre-painted spoilers only), which will shave some time off the installation.
STEP 2.
Start out by turning over the spoiler and setting it on a soft surface, to prevent any scratches. Place the plastic locator T-strips into the mounting holes on spoiler and LED brake light hole. TIP: A small piece of masking tape is helpful in holding the T-strips in position.
STEP 3.
Place spoiler on closed decklid and align to proper position. A measuring tape will ensure a "perfect" alignment.
STEP 4.
Using masking tape, secure locator T-strips to the decklid of the vehicle. Simply remove the spoiler by lifting straight up leaving the T-strips secured to the decklid.
STEP 5.
Using a 1/8" drill bit, drill thru the T-strip holes and into the decklid. It is not necessary to drill through a double panel on this particular application because we can utilize the factory openings on the underside.
STEP 6.
Remove T-strips and using a 5/16" drill bit, drill thru the 1/8" hole in step 5. If a "double panel" does exist, use a 3/4" drill bit to drill thru the "inner panel". This allows the ratchet or nutdriver to secure the screw tightly against the upper panel.
STEP 7.
After deburring all holes, apply small amounts of primer which will help prevent rusting of the freshly drilled metal.
STEP 8.
Pull back pedestal gaskets exposing mounting tape and place spoiler on decklid and using supplied screws secure to the vehicle using a ratchet or nutdriver. Be sure to feed the LED light wire through the pre-determined hole. Apply small amounts of silicone based caulk over mounting screws as this will help prevent leaking, rusting, or loosening of screws. TIP: Gasket STEP 9.
When installing a LED brake light it is recommended to splice into the 3rd brake light in the vehicle and attach spoiler wires using electrical tape. Step on the brake light to ensure proper wiring, simply switch the two connections if spoiler does not light.
STEP 10.
Finish your install by vacuuming any debris or metal shavings and then reinstall any panels, mats or other items that may have removed earlier in installation.
material is extremely sticky once exposed, so we found that spraying it with water or glass cleaner will allow you to reposition spoiler as needed.

So, what type of drill bit should I use. Is there one I should use for drilling into a car ?
