I will be painting mine Polynesian Green to match my car soon, and think it may be a first, as I have never seen one painted to match the car before. Only carbon or the original finish. If anyone has a pic of one painted up, please share.

yummybacon had a post talking about painting one, and folks suggested red, but no pics were posted, except for one of a white car with a partial mid-wing.

The wing actually isn't officially mounted yet. Ran out of vacation time. I just stuck it on the car with two tiny pieces of 3M tape for the picture only. Good eye. I plan to take my time measuring/drilling to get it right hopefully my next trip home. I need to replace the rear glass with one that has the wiper hole first before i mount the wing. The bumper is color-matched, and done myself. The time of day makes the color appear different.

Great job. Your car looks real nice. Were you able to salvage the right side steering, dash and all parts of your other car?

I was, but decided to pass on swapping it all into another car. Sold the set-up to a member in NC who will be installing it into his. I do miss sitting on the right a lot.
