    That looks almost like the one I put on my car, only mine doesn't have the light bar. The downsweeps on the end are just barely above the top of the car, it does look awesome. You're gonna love it!

    Are you going to mount it Bi-Plane style on top of the original wing as shown, or are you replacing it?

    Also, is there a way to tweek the lid springs to handle the extra weight?

    Well I am not quite sure how much the GTO wing weights but it feels like its between 1-2 lbs and its ridiculously light. So I am guessing the oem one is probably about the same or heavier wing then the GTO one...

    Also the OEM one is going away and the GTO is replacing it once I paint it which will probably be over memorial weekend.

    As it stands now it looks like 2 of the holes might lign up but I will have to drill two more in order to get it to bolt up nice and tight.

    BTW if someone wants to trade trunk lids I will be all over that cuz I dont really want to part this current trunk lid with its wing... PM me if interested.

    Here are my preliminary pics before fixing the crack, painting and mounting. I am still trying to get a black one to avoid all that trouble






    Let me know what you guys think.
    Thanks,

    The wing is not on yet. These are just the pictures of what it would look like. Yeah, I also contacted a the GTO guys and got a few responses about a black wing. I may fix this one up, paint it green and put it on my other Cat. Can't wait...
