It may depend on where you get it from, if you get a good quality one, it should line up exactly. Mine did and I got it from late model resto, on the other hand if you get a cheep discount one from a discount store, you may have problems.

My buddie got his off ebay, not really sure what company, but It bolted just fine in two holes, and then like matt said, he used some two sided tape.

that guys sux :D

I bought mine from Speedworx.com they sell all Saleen's stuff. It was 189.
It was a direct bolt on (2 bolts) and some double sided tape. I did have to place 80lb dumbells on the corners to get them to round down and hug the shape of the car. I left the weight on for about a week. Pics in profile.

I got a saleen one from another store, and the corners are lookin like devil horns.
I still need to have it painted / mounted.

After the 1 week 80# workout, did it stay where it should be?

what store did you get it from? I want to get one and it would be nice to find one that fits good, seems like the authentic saleen deffently isnt that choice.

Saleens quality has gone way downhill over the last 5 years. well, at least their fit and finish on their products.
saleen changed their mounting design a little while back. they used to be a 4 bolt, fiberglass design. they are now a 2 bolt urethane design. like said above, it uses double sided tape to mount the back of it. it has a tendency to arrive at your door warped and/or deformed.

i have an ABC exclusive model and i must say the fit and finish was terriffic. its made of fiberglass and it IS a 4 bolt design and it bolts right up to the 4 stocker holes
