whats stumping you? They make fiber glass over that rivet on. Just paint the rivets before you pop them into the panels. Use a little touch up and youll never notice them. If i remember correctly, you can get a box of 250 rivets (small heads) for like $12 at lefthanderchassis.com. Plus they are in the area, well my area.

If you NEED to sell the 240 because you NEED to buy a new car, there doesn't sound like there's much of a choice to me. Do what you need to do, there's always more cars out there.

I agree with 600sx. This is a hobby that you can always come back to when you're ready. =) We're not gonna bash you if you've got other priorities. We understand, family comes first.

Big heavy wing on flimsy light carbon fiber is a bad thing without bracing to the trunk floor. Carbon fiber is strong, but not as strong/rigid as steel.

Ya it lightens the load, but you still get drag from the air moving against the wing. Im not saying your doing the 120mph it takes to actually have the wing effective, at all times. Im saying carbon fiber flexes and fatigues faster than steel because its not as forgiving. Carbon will crack and break (unless properly braced) vs steel which will just flex.

http://forums.evolutionm.net/motor-sports/541053-proper-way-mount-gt-wing.html

check that out, its hard to explain it, but what happened to the cyber evo is what happens when mounting directly to carbon fiber. Where if you look in the picture of the touge factory car. Youll see the holes in the trunk and the mounts are welded to the floor. Yes its designed put all downforce to the chassis. But its also made to make sure the wing stays firmly attached. Which maximizes the effect of it.

lol, your not riceing it. If you like the wing then rock it! Im all for GT wings. Im just saying if its going on carbon fiber, then please brace the shit out of it so you dont lose it and your trunk. No sense in wrecking stuff you can help it you know?

also remember, once you drill through carbon fiber. Theres no going back. So once holes are there your not fixing it. Mount it to the oem one and you can wled the holes back up if you dont like it.

Carbon fiber should be fine in the snow, its the sun that eats the clear coat/gel coat(depending on which brand you have). But if you keep it nice and waxed, i dont see why i wont last. Keep up the work, i wana see pics of it with overs and that kit.

I love the S14 body car looks nice. Sounds like you have a good plan layed out for the car. They always seem to turn out better when you have some sort of direction before you start your build. Keep up the good work.
