has anyone installed a 3dr liftback lip spoiler?

I saw them on Toyota Parts Store for $138.00 and it can't be all that hard to DIY. They wanted $275 (installed) at the dealer.

Yes I installed mine. Took about 90 minutes. You need to ensure your measurements with their template are accurate an that youcan use a drill. It was not difficult but do read the instructions twice and ensure you visually see how it is going to mount.

I always think a spoiler installation is the thing you can spend a little to get it done by a professionnal. It's not something you can fix easily if your installation is not great on the first shot.

How many holes need to be drilled and does the headliner have to come out?

Famous last words!

No, seriously, unless you're positively sure you can do this without messing up, let a professional take care of it. Even with a template, we're talking about drilling into your car's body, you can still mess up, better to pay a little extra than to have a poorly mounted wing or badly drilled holes needing filler and paint.

like i said.......

You'd have to be a complete mechanical moron to screw up drilling two holes. We're not talkin about an engine rebuild.
