If anyone here DIY's it I'd appreciate if you could go through your process.

Also, given that it's just 2 strips of 3M tape, could a person rip it off if they were so inclined?

Thanks.
I had the dealer do it because it keeps the warranty intact..I've had CF products start fading in previous cars, and I didn't want to risk it.

Here's how she looks on my MG:

No, I have the OEM carbon spoiler on mine and it is almost impossible to remove. The 3M tape has insane sticking properties. It's not going anywhere. I also thought about using BetaLink which was supplied in my order but since it's a lease I'd like to keep my $600 spoiler when I return the car.

The CF weave looks great. Just checked with McKenna and they might have these in stock so I might pick one up on my way home from work Monday.
