What are you using for bumper stays? Almost looks like straps from a snowboard boot.

Where about in Mass are you from? I'd love to come give you a hand sometime, if you need it, and pick your brain.

i don't have any install photos i basically sized it up and used the template and drilled holes.... i did trim down the feet some to flatten them out. i use some Perrin wing stiffness from a 2015 sti. then i had some space between the stiffie and the trunk.. so i had some spacers 3d printed

That looks fantastic. It's like RB5-ish. Were the stiffeners required because the mounting issues? It looks like the front, outer corners of the base are floating above the trunk in the last shot...or am i looking at that wrong?

the stiffs were added for cool factor? scene points? and the wing only mounts via 2 screws per side. i tried to flatten the bottom out some but its meant for a curved trunk
