graniteguy has the thunderbolt scoop so check with him... if i were you i would get some 3m double sided tape and eliminate the screws... it should hold as long as you block off the opening so it doesnt catch wind

we're worried about the supplied screws not being long enough, so if its screwed up in any way, i want it to be the body shops fault, not mine
