Looks great - except that you really need to get those SVO rims on soon! The car looks really tough, until you look at the standard 16" wheels! I have the same wing - did you only use the standard spoiler mounting bolts or did you use self tappers to hold inside part of the base down as well? It looks pretty flat to me, so I'm guessing you used self tappers. Can't tell the bodgy paint job from the photos (and I've seen the ones on your site as well). Hope you get it fixed to the required standard.

Originally posted by JCV8 Thought I'd mock-up what your car should look like with the SVOs.
Thanks for that, I did exactly the same thing after I bought the wheels before the new wing.
Totally agree with you, the car looks good, until you look down! It definately needs those wheels. Not long now though, I'll have them on after Xmas.
I had a look for the self tappers, and couldn't see them. It does look flat so I think they may have used an adhesive. Soon find out when it gets resprayed.
As for the paint job, I tried to get some close ups but the camera wouldn't focus that close, I was using an old digital camera. There are bubbles in the paint and they didn't sand the fibreglass back in places. Not only is the paint spread thin, they also chipped the paint after spraying then tried to touch them up in several places.
