Default Removable wing?

Hey guys,

This may be a dumb question so excuse me if so... however I am interested in getting a wing for my car; specifically the 'Battle Aero Force 1'.
That being said, I am not committed to it being a permanent/constant thing on my car.

So my question is, does anyone know of a way that I could mount the wing so it could be relatively easy to remove?

Again, this might just be really dumb, and if so, then just let me know. I may just have to commit or find someone willing to sell my another trunk to mount the wing to.....

Presumably the wing bolts in place. Remove the bolts, remove the wing.

problem is, there are going to be holes in your trunk. Also depending in the wing, you might have to paint so you are looking at a fair amount of money... basically there is no easy way

It doesn't take much imagination to come up with ways to close off the holes. Depending on how water tight it needs to be, and how pretty he wants it to look, it could be as simple as some of the little plastic push-pin things from the local auto parts store. Or some button head bolts. Or a fancy plate that bolts on in place of the wing struts.

As for paint, I don't see any reason paint would be required for the wing he mentioned.

On that wing it looks like you could just undo the four bolts that connect the vertical supports to the base plates and be done.

You will have holes to fill when the wing leaves.

Yeah, I wasnt quiet sure what people were referring to when they said I needed paint.

Im thinking color matched bumper plugs may be the way to go (bumperplugs.com). Id be able to just pop them in whenever I want to remove the wing and they should be fairly unnoticeable.
