I need to clarify something. You haven't done anything 'impossible'. You've done something out of the ordinary. Since we're always looking for ways to improve, you can jump right in and help us.

So when are you actually going to supply us with data? Your car looks great on the outside. And you have not done anything impossible, its just most of us dont have time, resources, or the money to experiment like that.

The Wing is from A&A Specialties, I had to add ¾” to the back of the pedestal. I cut plywood into a ¾” wedge and glued and screwed it to the end of the pedestals, then actually toke my Orbital sander and shaped it as close as possible to the pedestal. Next was body filler, and more sanding. Then I sanded the pedestals bottoms to match the trunk lid, A true nightmare, the trunk is sloped plus it is rounded at the back!!!. I was about to throw in the towel, but I kept with it. The hard work paid off bigtime!!, It really sets the car off!!!. Very pleased with the results!!!!!!!
Thanks for the info. I was looking at the trunk today and you are right, it will be a bugger to get the profile of the trunk right. But I think I may not go quite as high, I'll have to work on it, your'* looks good. Again thanks for the info and welcome aboard

Haha no, nothing impossible. All it would take is pulling the cam and handing it to nearly any cam company to grind. The interesting part comes in the details. I'm excited for this video that'll make us 'more intrigued'

I would say from start to finish, about 8 hours in total. I have a Question though, why do you call it a butt wing??? I would call it a wing or a spoiler??

We call 'em spoilers, but the Bonnevilles without spoilers we call Bubble-butts. Yours shows a little more butt. That'* probably why.
