    I have not personally used this style of well nut to mount any thing on a car before but i heres how i would do it. You would to lay blue tape on the out side of the lid and outline the duckbill. You would want to make a small dimple from the bottom side so the you can see where the hole should be drilled in the lid. Once you have done this you can drill the holes in the trunk lid. Next tape the duck bill to the lid and from the bottom of the lid with a sharpie holding the duckbill as still as possible and mark where the holes in the duckbill go. This is the most important step because the better you line things up the better the fitment will be edge to edge. Then you drill holes in the duckbill. They are maybe a 1/4 inch deep probably less so when doing so you willing just and the tip of the bit poke though. From there its just install the well nuts and bolting them to the lid.

    Re: JDM Duckbill Replica's

    So I was able to pick up one duckbill and I can finally put some things to rest. The fit meant it great on the one. It doesn't have to holes for mounting yet but it a good price to make a mounting guide. I can now show you the estimated weight of 11.5oz (+/-). But they should be close to the same as he measure everything he use to make them and keep helps the constancy stay same every time. This is the first one it dose not have the holes drilled. But the plane is to use this for boxing measurements and I'll use it to test fit and mark where the holes in the actual jdm duckbill would land in the cf one's. It will also serve as a how to guide foe those of you that would like to go it alone. There will be more shots of it to come and more wing's sooner then later hopefully.

    As soon as I find a secure way to ship these this one will be headed your way I have talked to everyone else and they are okay with waiting until the other ones are done or have special shipping requests.

    Would you like to have yours with per drilled holes or not. This wing does not have the holes in it will come with mounting hardware but you would have to drill the holes yourself

    I'd like the holes pre drilled like it was originally advertised, but I don't want to wait another year. I appreciate your hard work on this and understand some of the frustrations throughout the process.

How many trunk lids have you found "flawed" in this process? Really there are going to be variables to deal with

    How much longer until all these are made and shipped?

    I was honestly thinking of something like this for my hatchback, but years of waiting is a bit much honestly.

    Not much longer tell those that have paid will start to get theres. As far as the rest he will continue to work way at them. However there is a wait list now because so many people are asking or have tried paypaling(and got returned) me in advance so it's not likely that everyone that wants one will get one if they decide not to make and more after all this. But that doesn't mean they won't make more down road. Jaime the one and only person making them has expressed interest in doing other rare parts for us and has green lighted the jdm trunk because someone in socal has a half cut vigor trunk to use for the mold. So he is down to do other stuff in the future which is promising.

    As far as the amount of time is has taken. I agree it was way to long. This post started with a different company all together and have change when they started talking crazy with the amount of them wings needed to buy up front. Also taken into consideration that one person that dose this on the side by hand really slows down thing's. When I first started working with he and at that time partner moved quickly in the mold making part and that when it went to shit.

    I will also add that this was the biggest order he has ever had. He made many one off single item things for people but has never pushed into a full production type of business. That was on me for going with him but he also had the most reasonable price for everyone that was the big part of why I chose him. But the biggest reason I went them is because he is all about the old school honda community. For him it's not about making money but making a quality product that will Preserve a part of history. Making sure each one he send out is the best he can dose take time, The bigger the item the more time it takes, most of all funding somethings like this a big hurdle.
    There's a somethings I've learned in this process as well. Having a clean item to copy is a good start. Stick to a smaller amount to be made and so on.

    Moving forward there will be a trunk being made And now I have some idea of what the process should and shouldn't be like.

    From the pictures, the fitment looks better than even the OEM spoiler.

    They are really Ridgid compared to the soft foam spoilers there is a little bit of a gap but that's because of how you have to mount it in the photos it was M3 taped on to my car trunk for the photo's. Even tested the twisted fucked off prototype and if fit nicely in the middle but the corners were still a little twisted so one corner would lay flat and the other one would lift up about a 16th of an inch. The only problems i see is the will always be a gap some where so water will leak in if you hard mount it. Sure you can apply some type of silicone to the bottom of the wing when you mount it and that should keep a pretty watertight seal but it will corrode over time. Because the wings are the stiff there isnt much you can reall do about it.
