There are some pictures that you can see how the wing looks like. Also....I hope your body shop is smart enough to realize that the wing is heavy and will bend the top of your trunk in unless you support it correctly. On my friend's car this wasn't done at first. At one point it looked like you could rip it off with your bare hands. Later it was fixed. I don't know how they did it though.

What's with the poor grammar? The youth of America is going downhill huh?

Anyway.....re-read my response to you and you'll see this

What that means is I don't know how they did it.


Seriously prelude19 I don't know. If you find a good shop they should find a way to fix this. What was happening was the trunk was bending IN where the mounts were.....after going over bumps and stuff you can only expect that to happen if there's not enough support.

Also....I do not know how much a Saleen style spoiler weighs. Maybe prelude19 can weigh his and he can tell you guys.
