I am nearly done making my prototype Mid-Wing that I have deleted the lower hole that the rear window wiper motor and arm go thru on a stock mid-wing. I am also almost done rebuilding a "stock" Mid-Wing too. I am 95% sure I will be making molds and reproducing both of these versions as well as the 4WD cutlass upper spoiler with built in brake light. :-)
If the reproduction goes well, I will be offering other versions as well, such as adding a built in LED brake light into the Mid-Wing for those who want to remove the big box from the rear window and don't have the upper spoiler with the LED built into it.

So!...
Who wants one and what do you think will be fair pricing? Any other ideas/variations or modification requests? The stronger the response will determine my pace for completing them. Lol. I will not be taking pre- orders until I have made the molds and successfully made a few to post up pics.

ok ok ok! Here is what I have so far...
Image
STOCK mid-wing With orinal hole for rear wiper motor and arm

Image
This is with the "V"smoothed out and the hole filled with epoxy. Keep in mind that there is still a pocket underneath so the rubber plug that fills the hole in the hatch glass can stay inside the glass and not interfere with the wing.

Image
another "side" view of the deleted "v"

Image
This is the wing upside down. notice the hole for the rubber plug to fit inside of on the left. Also notice on the right, that is the actual wing part. see the "step/notch" that is there for the arm of the rear wiper to travel without hitting the wing. This will be smoothed out as well for uniformity in appearance and function.

more pics as I get further along

The poll I took was to see if it would be worth the time and money to create a mold and produce them. There wasnt much interest, unfortunately. I do have an extra mid-wing though. If you are interested, I can make it with or without the wiper hole in the bottom? The former owner of this wing cut it! He separated the wing from the bottom portion.So, I will be working to reattach the bottom portion anyway. Lmk

As I stated above, I did this poll to see if there was a strong enough demand to create molds and reproduce these mid-wings. I did get a few people responding but not nearly enough strong interests to put the time into it. So, for now, not reproducing these.
