    i just aquired a trd duck tail wing whats the best way to mount it and make it look good,

    i was thinking of using liquid nails and g clamps to get it to sit nice on the hatch and bog up the drill holes from previous user and any tips on moulding it on to the hatch to give a seemless look??

    personally i wouldnt bog it or fibreglass it on etc cuz the bog or glass will crack and it will end up looking shit. id just use pop rivets and paint them same colour.

    rivets and sealer so no water gets in underneath
    moist=rust
    but it pisses me off when people assume your hooning cos your car is loud, has bald tires, a roll cage, fresh bake and dinted bumpers!!
    Or driving in a wolf pack.

    you can use rivits and still bog over the whole lot to make it look seamless and smooth, but to make sure it looks good and lasts you need to take a lot of care and time in doing it. also need a flexible filler to avoid cracking too

    use epoxy resin, the industrial grade stuff.
    allows no moisture inbetween surfaces, ensures a super strong bond and looks 100x better then tacky rivets. bit more expensive but the results speak for themselves.
    i did mine with my panel and paint guy to ensure a prof job.



    i can write up the exact process if u want. was a bit too it, more than i thought anyways.
