Where did you get the double sided tape? Do I just cut off the studs or the center snaps too?

Instead of starting my own thread about it, I'm going to ask a question in here.
I'm taking off my spoiler. I have heard there is tape holding it on. Is it bad? Will it be hard to pull off? Any tips or tricks to get it and all the adhesive off?

No, it's not particularly difficult to remove. You have to start be addressing the nuts that are located underneath the rear hatch. The double stick tape that most people rave about - does not have any extra magical adhesive power. You just have to carefully exercise some caution when you engage in the removal process. (like: Do not use a metal screw driver to pry it off.)
Some have recommended some nylon fishing line to remove items that are glued down onto your car. [emblems, etc.] Using the fishing line will allow you to saw away between the paint surface and the object you choose to remove. You won't harm the paint by using that method.
When I was replacing my side fender emblems with an LED version. I used a flat plastic burnishing tool to remove it. I was also able to keep the originally placed adhesive material intact. It took me about 2 minutes to do so. (uh, so much for the double stick tape myth)
Personally from seeing your Z photos, I think the rear of your car looks great as it is right now!
BUT - Lot's of luck on adding your new wing.

One more question, how do I get the clips out. Do I just pull up on the spoiler or is there a trick to it?
