Welp, I took to the trunk with a drill and marker and managed to install the carbon fiber group-a wing w/o too much trouble. Wing comes from DBS motorsports in the UK (im sure Dave will reply since he's been hounding me to get pics of this prototype).

Looks good man, but one more request, can you take a picture with the entire car in the picture? Get some perspective on the wing w/car!

Wow, is all i can say.. its a beaut. If I wasnt a poor student in need of some suspension and a paint job and a rollcage and brakes and seats, and harnesses, I'd so buy one ;)

Maybe when I get my paint job done, I'll get one.

How much?

its single sheets of carbonfiber twill, top and bottom... seamed together. The mounts are fiber glass mat for strength, bonded to the bottom carbon sheet.

<edit>
yes... its hollow

Yeah, it looked like total ****. I still haven't found a wing I like on my car... even the SE spoiler is a little gaudy for me.

I felt like I was building a model at the dragstrip that day... I was holding up exhaust tips and wings to my car like it was a Revell kit :)

Thats no excuse.

And why do you always call for a thread lock because the thread is old?

waffles. The tubes are not a constant thing. They're not like a big landfill that you just dump stuff on.

I do declare this is the first time I have posted sir locksalot in response to the age of a thread. Tut tut, cheerio.
