almost looks like a bad version of an older imprezza. nice though.
It's not the fall that hurts, it's the sudden stop at the bottom!

It actually looks real good in person. I will try to get a clearer pic. This is the only spoiler I'd have on the car.

I'm told it's from a mid-80's Pontiac Gran Prix. Good luck with the junk yards. I think it looks cool, and it does add real downforce, which helps with those cross-winds in the plains states.

BTW, anyone know how to add some spring to the trunk lid to offset the additional weight? Or how to add some hydro action?

Do you have a different view of a 1GN car with this wing :?: It looks the Kaminari KTR2 wing on my 05 SRT-4, but I could tell more with a side view of the car with that wing

i wish it were that simple but if you look at the underside of the trunk lid you will see that there is more to it than that.

Huh??

Locate where you want it from the topside.
Lay down some tape and mark the spots where the studs hit the tape.
Drill through the tape with the appropriate sized bit.
If you hit some of the under bracing, just go through it.
Using a hole saw or a uni-bit, open up those holes so you can access right under the skin of the decklid.
Bolt the wing down to the skin and you're done.

If you wanted to do a nice job, you would paint over the fresh holes you made and goop some RTV around those same holes before you tighten the wing down.

after looking at it again, i still dont think its that simple. with a 1st gen wing no doubt, it would be easy as pie. done it before. but with the sxt wing there just seems to be too much stuff in the way to just be able to drill through it all.
