I got these 2 things coming in on tuesday:dancing: . Is there anything I should keep in mind when I'm installing? I know the hood is cake, but for the trunk I'm not sure exactly what im required to do. I'm also not sure about putting a spoiler on the carbon fiber trunk. Are there any kind of steps I should take when installing ON carbon fiber?:eek:hnoes:

if it was me, i would leave the spoiler off. the only spoiler i would put on a CF trunk is a CF spoiler and since there is no replica FA5 spoilers made you dont have that option.

yea...but that is how much the CF hood and trunk weigh. to get weight savings you must subtract the weight of the CF hood and trunk from the weight of the OEM hood and trunk.

you heard wrong. a few posts up the shipping weight for the CF hood and trunk is 65 lbs. no matter how you divide it there is no way the total for the CF hood and trunk is only 33lbs. that would leave 32lbs of shipping material...i doubt that.

I really like the HFP Decklid Spoiler, I think I'll use that if anything. I don't think they have a carbon fiber one

you could always get the Cf replica spoiler for the Fg2 and slap that bad boy on. that would look Badass
