The wing is Bakemono's carbon fiber Version 6 replica. I got it second-hand from a member on here, and it was already mostly painted blue, so I had no problem paint-matching it over the c/f. I know it's c/f, and that's what counts.

The front end was resprayed in July 2009 and again in March 2010. Both were from insurance claims; the first not my fault, the second a little bit more my fault. Most of the other body parts (wing, lip/skirts/spats, rear bumper) were painted along with the repair work in 09.

Next up:
- Roll fenders more aggressively to fit the Rays with less rubbing Edit: DONE!
- Install painted aero guards
- STI stickers for fog covers. Edit: DONE!
