Did you buy an authentic wing, swap, ebay, reproduction? It helps to know, and pictures will help.

It's a replica wing no studs it has bolts that come from inside the trunk to hold it on I got a deal on it so I wasn't going to pass it up. I'm not sure how to upload a picture I only have one picture of it sitting on the car anyways you it's from the side you can't see the gap in it but I'll take one tonight of the gap and figure out how to upload it. I have tightened down or drilled holes for yet I just set it on

You are going to have to sand it down, take a little material off here and there to make it fit.

Are you sure they sent you the correct wing for your generation?

Pics?

Sorry to say it, but scooby life and vandelay are right. You got a rep and now you're going to have to do some work if you want it to fit like the real thing.
