Forgive me, I'm definitely not trying to hijack this thread but I was wondering this very same thing also. So they just bolt on with no kind of seals? Also, my car is a Esprit and never had the rear spoilers. Anyone know of a pattern or measurements for the bolt holes?

The bolt holes get sealed individually when you put the spoiler on. There's no welting used on the rear spoiler or end caps.

 

I'm not aware of a pre made pattern but there may be one. If you don't find one PM me.
