Here's a picture I took of the underside of the tail. You can see there are two rows of screw holes.

The "forward" row (bottom of spoiler in attached pic) goes to the factory black spoiler mount holes, which should be present on many but not all c900 hatches. It has 5 screws in a line: 1 in the midline of the car, 2 20cm either side of that one, and 2 more ~18cm outboard of that. Plus two outboard of that and further fore on the hatch for a total of 7 screws. I believe this is the same as the factory black hatch spoiler.

The "aft" row (top of spoiler in pic) consists of 6 evenly spaced screws going into the aft edge of the spoiler. These must be drilled in your hatch to accommodate the whale tail. There are also copious amounts of goo mounting the spoiler to the hatch around the holes. This is for waterproofing of the holes as well as more securely affixing the spoiler. They say the factory goo was Sikaflex, which is possibly the same stuff I'm going to use to glue up the rubber. I did not get spacing on these because I got a positive covid test and had to leave the machine shop where I was working. The tail will be there when I return from isolating, on Monday.

I actually wonder if the aft row of screws needs to be used, or if it could be completely supplanted by glue, thereby avoiding drilling more holes in a perfectly good hatch.
