Has anyone retro fitted a tailgate spoiler?

If you’ve had one off before what do the pins press into on the tailgate? I’m guessing some sort of plastic cup but my googling has came up blank.

This chap did but no mention of how, think he sold his jimny but might still answer a pm.
Was straight forward enough, get your spoiler and put something "creamy" on the bolt holes underneath, I used Polish.
Next place the spoiler on the tailgate carefully and then lift it off, the polish leaves two marks that you can drill into.
Drill a hole large enough to get the thread of the bolt through on the outside of the tailgate, then on the inside drill a hole that is large enough to get a socket into (10mm I used).
To fill in the hole on the inside I used two grommets to neaten things up, once I've gotten mine resprayed I'll probably tigerseal around it too.
I'm interested to see how Suzuki do it though
I bought a new (primed, unpainted) aftermarket Polish-made spoiler from Ebay. It is not an original Suzuki accessory but a copy. It is tailor made for Jimnys. I has two threaded holes in the feet (one hole per foot) and comes with two screws.
However, when I position the spoiler on the top of the rear door, it does not fit perfectly. The curvature of the spoiler's feet is not perfectly molded according to the shape of the upper curvature of the rear door - there are slight gaps in between when I position the spoiler against the door.
The seller did mention in the item description that some sanding or filling of the spoiler for adjustment might be needed. So they insured themselves against these kind of complaints.
I would like to know if Suzuki's original rear door spoiler fits perfectly on the upper curvature of the rear door or not?
And what would you suggest that I do in order to make if a perfect fit?
Did anyone else buy those Polish spoilers on Ebay?
