It doesn't look like the holes on a version 6 replica wing will line up with the holes from the coupe wing. anyone have suggestions or anyone done this before? (i'm sure many people have) anyone have pics of the underside of a coupe wing?

Version 6 replica

/\/\ what he said! If it is a replica, does that make it a one-piece wing?
From what I can tell from the pic, the holes you have circled have a set of bolts that accessible thru those holes. An authentic wing is a two-piece wing. ;)

The two big holes on top are not the mount holes. It will fit.
oops my bad I failed with the red circles :blol:

it is a two piece fiber glass replica wing, the two pieces are already put together because I was about to put it on my car

An authentic wing has to match 13 holes to the trunk. 10 of them are screws that bolt onto the trunk. As for a replica...:confused:

if the real version 6 has extra holes, you mean it only lines up on the sides with the coupe wing. obviously, there still needs to be holes added in the middle.

i recently put my replica V6 on. i just used the 3 holes on either side and it fits great. i don't see the need for the center unless you get to high, high speed. i just need to get a third brake light.

thanks man, i'll probably do two more in the middle anyway, just to keep it down. did you put it on yourself? i'm sure any place that is going to professionally do it would make sure it doesn't leak, with some sort of leakproof seal no? like the same stuff a stock GDB wing has? and sealant around the holes as well.

(the black trim)
