have you have thought about doing something to an oem wing for the rsx to make it better? no ? well I did...

I thought about cutting off the two areas where the screws go into the trunk, so the wing is flat, and somehow attaching it to the hatch, and have it come out beyond the hatch about an inch or so- like a mugen wing on an crx (sort of)

to attach it, I would reuse the screw hole areas, but have them so when they screw in the oem wing sits flat.

im going to try it when I get home from college, but here are two pics to show you my idea-

- in the pics it looks like the 05-06 trunklid lip, but i think it would look different in real life.

I will shape it out of pink insulation foam and layer it with fiberglass .

lol wow.. you should see my fiberglass wing that I made in my garage for my RSX..
This Type R one is a much better idea...

I didn't properly support my fiberglass wing and it distorted while drying.
Oh well.. it was my first time working with fiberglass so I kindof expected it.

I go to design school, so I do alot of molding and whatnot with different foams.

I plan to recreate a mugen trunklid lip just like the pics I posted, so when you

look at the car from the side, the wing makes the car look very straight, so it wont stick up any higher then the trunk, but will stick out......

like this:

+rep :thumbsup:
:iamwiths: except nep rep instead :thumbsdowJust kidding
On a serious note though, I wonder how many people would have bought MUGEN spoilers if they
were made by another company. Some of these mugen spoilers look like shit; period.​
