Post RB5 Wing

I've been searching and can't seem to find anywhere else that sells the Prodrive RB5 Wing except SPD...Not that I have anything against SPD, but I thought there were other vendors selling this piece. (just trying to look for a deal...you all understand right?)

Hi Guys
SPD can sell the parts on to other distributers if they wish. I do not know if this is the case here.

Thumbs up

Uhh.....the RB5 wing is the mother of all wings IMHO. By a long shot (Prodrive is second best). You HAVE to see the RB5 wing! It is a sight to behold!

Question...

When one purchases one of these wings, don't they arrive at your door unpainted? How does one paint one of these wings without damaging the wing and without leaving imperfections in the paint (ie: blobs, brush strokes, streaks, etc.)? Do you purchase the paint from your dealer or elsewhere?

I guess my question not only concerns wings, but all exterior body parts such as body kits, etc. I'm kind of hesitant to purchase a $800 wing and a $1000-worth of other body parts only to mess up the paint.

I would recommend taking the parts to a professional to have painted so they can do a correct color match and curing.
