Well I got my Ebay wing in and the finish of it is pretty good. It is very wide though at 61". I am 6'0" and it comes up to my chin.

Anyone know if you can buy just wing legs without a wing somewhere? I may just make my own out of this 3/8" aluminum, but if there is an inexpensive readily available set of legs, I may go with those.

found this one that looks pretty good and not a bad price for carbon.

59" x 9" with a 42.5" base. should put the legs right at the edge of the quarters.

Well we installed the wing on a spare trunk for an event on Friday just as it came out of the box. with the wing at a flat 0* AOA it made a substantial difference. We pre dented the trunk in the rear where it would have pushed in a little anyway and got it mounted very solid. It held on well and we were at speeds close to 140mph.

I will post some pictures in a little.

I will get some better ones, but this will have to do for now. Only one I could find and it's from the track.

Is that David O's turbocharged NA?

Well done on the two-for-one parking spot.

Yup that's his. It has the lemons car hood right now for the vent since he didn't want to put hood pins in his.
