Thumbs up AFS/Revolutions RB5 replica wing

Got this on friday. still need to get it painted!

The molding quality is excellent. it's smooth with no warps or bubbling, and feels very solid. it should be cake to paint up and install. still haven't checked fir. I'll update the thread when I actually get it on the car.

great work, guys!

It's a really solid-feeling fiberglass. comes primered in a nice, rough white.

Thumbs down

Make up your mind, Darwin, is it smooth or rough? Mine was rough as hell and I would definitely not have bought it if I had seen it first. Replica parts must usually be REALLY bad for people to think this thing is good.

rough like a primer's supposed to be. The kind that you hit with nice light sanding with 1000-grit before you spray, and know stuff's gonna stick. smooth to the touch, but with that bit of 'grip'.

I think you got a bum wing.

That is quite possible, but I am not going to risk another one to find out.
