Thanks Josh! Two weeks from today :rockon:

So I paid for them to arrange shipping both to and from. I just learned that they do not offer this anymore. People are now responsible to arrange their own shipping.

This is how mine was picked up.

I am 100% sure that I made the correct decision, it's going to look MINT.

Are you grandfathered in for shipping or are you having to set something up yourself now?

She definitely gained her freshman 40, thats for sure.

Thanks buddy. I have always been a red caliper guy, but I really wanted something more unique this time. I am absolutely blown away with them. I can not wait to see how they look behind the wheels.

Are you grandfathered in for shipping or are you having to set something up yourself now?
I am since I have been billed for the service, thankfully. Not that it would have prevented me from figuring out a way to to get it there and back, but it sure was an easier experience using their shipping company. There is something comforting using a company that they recommend and use. Not to mention they did all the communicating with them.

DEFINITELY the right decision there!

I like to disassemble things.
Which begs the question....why did they stop the service?

I didn't ask. I can only assume they have a reason. Wether it be logistics, cost, relationship issues, who knows. My car was scheduled 11 months ago, and I do not know when they made the stop. I also don't know what they did before me. It's possible they change operations on the regular.

I am definately over critical, just trying to understand why the trunk was striped/painted before the CFTP wing was fitted? Or at least it appears that way. Outside of availability/timeline of Wing and when it was being painted i can't think of why you wouldn't? At the end of the day it wont matter just curious.

I've seen the evidence that will clear your questions up. Just waiting for Jaime to post it...

I got into the wing game late, and did not expect to get a wing before I took delivery of my car. I purchased a new trunk lid for SA to paint and stripe for me to use at a later date when I finally got a CFTP wing.

I was going to run a CF swing spoiler on the original lid until I got a CFTP wing. As you know ended up getting a wing so I now have two trunk lids painted by SA. So, I have options now lol.
