Got this out of the CF mag that I've been gathering other data from & figured I would post it since many are starting to do mods to their cars. This is for a particular style & type of wing, but the general steps should work for any other rear spoiler installation that requires drilling.



In this article, we take a look at how to transform a conventional Nissan 350Z into something more race-bred lookingand unmistakably wild. Now that the Z's popularity has grown to the level it has within our market, and so many have gone under the knife, it's more difficult to make one stand out form the rest. Of course there's nothing wrong with the original skin going in, but tuners will be tuners...and that's what drives us to do the things we do with our cars.

Carbon fiber wings, hoods, hatches, mirrors and front lips are hot commodities, so thay are natural choices to fit the path of the 350Z has blazed. To stay on top of this rather quick moving developement, we thought is fitting to bring you up to speed on how easily Wings West's new 3dCarbon wing fits on Nissan's hot little rocket.

Wings West has been a leader on the scene, especially when it comes to introducing new products. Once again, it has stepped up with this new design. This is not your average carbon fiber wing, nor is it simply covered in "carbon-like" material. Wings West came to play big time with the fabrication of the 3dCarbon wing, which is entirely sculpted out of carbon fiber, from the bottom of the base to the outer edges of the wing. There are no metal stands or brackets holding this bad boy together. The only parts of the wing that are not carbon fiber are the authentic Wings West badges found on each outer section.

With a single base & stand, this setup is unique compared to the generic, two-base, two-stand, extruded wings we've been seeing. And even though the wing shown here is installed on a 350Z, it doesn't mean that this wicked piece cna't be bolted on to your Civic, Intergra, Eclipse, WRX, G35 or darn near anything else you may be interested in spiffing up. The 3dCarbon wing is a universal fitment and can be bolted to just about any application. Plus, the installation is relatively easy.

Before you put a drill to your trunk, however, make sure the wing is perfectly aligned and centered, and that it will do its job for your application. Once you have found the desired location and you like the looks and approach of the wing, mark that spot, That's where the holes will need to be drilled. Then you can bolt on your genuine carbon fiber wing, tighten the bolts and enjoy your wicked new toy.

Steps to DIY Rear Deck Lid Wing Installation:



1A-1C. Place the 3dCarbon Wing on the deck lid and position the single pylon base on the flat surface of the deck lid. With measuring tape, measure the wing from side to side using the tips of the end caps as reference. Also measure the wing from front to rear to ensure that it is square. Use the rear edge of the wing as a reference point. Double-check the measurements on both sides to make sure they are equal.

2A-2B. With the holes in the base of the single pylon as a reference, use a white grease pencil to mark the eight attaching holes on the paint surface of the deck lid.

3A-3B. Remove the wing and with a spring-loaded center puch, mark the surface of the deck lid, using the white marks as a guide.

4. Using a drill & a 1/8x6 inch drill bit, drill each of the 8 holes marked with the center pucnh. You will find that there is an inner sheet metal panel that also needs to be drilled completely through with the 1/8 inch drill bit. Once inside, be careful. Irregularities may guide the drill bit.

5. Using the drill with a 3/4 inch hole saw, cut an access hole through the 1st layer fo the inner sheet metal panel.

6A-6E. Close the hatch and use a 5/16 inch bit to drill out the 1/8 inch pilot holes on the outer sheet metal only. Touch up all bare metal inside and outside with a zinc primer to prevent corrosion or rusting. Mask off the car if necessary.

7A-7C. Put the supplied gasket around the edge of the base on the wing. Place the wing on the deck lid & align it over the holes that have been drilled.

8A-8C. Insert the 5/16 inch, 12 point chrome head screws through both the holes in the single pylon & the drilled holes. Open the rear the rear hatch & thread the 5/16 inch nuts onto the screws. Snug up each one, but do not over-tighten.

9A-9B. Open the hatch & reinstall the interior trim panel.

10A-10B. This is how the new carbon fiber wing should look when installed.
