What is now correct?

The picture below is correct. The picture in the post above of the destroyed spoiler is what can happen if you put it on backwards.

Don't know if it's "factory," but it's mounted the correct direction.

You previously posted dimensions look very close. The picture isn't exactly what you wanted but as close as I could get without removing the spoiler. The measurements are taken centered on the front edge of the stand. It is a factory installed rear spoiler car with the original spoiler. Chuck
