Covered the rear wing with flat black vinyl then installed a wing brace. Opinions?

I own a vinyl business. The bottom support is not done yet, still have an idea or two. Thanks.

I like the vinyl, but the wing brace just ain't doing it for me.

I like the vinyl and the brace. Good job. The bottom part needs a cover tho. Does it help with wing vibration at speed?

Props for being original, not my cup of tea.
+1 I like you idea but not the looks.. After completing a cross country trip and having my wing "De-laminate" because of vibration and the road bumps, I think the brace is a great idea!

I'm putting three of the black Perrin braces in my wing for the rally wing look. I like the black vinyl covering but the brace doesn't look right. The construction is nice quality but something about the tubular shape just doesn't fit. IMHO of course.

Call Perrin. They're supposed to update their site with them but haven't yet. Kinda steep at ~$160 each but it's cheaper than 13k for a Prodrive wing.:tdown: I'll see if I have a pic of them for you. Give me a few minutes.

EDIT: wi77iam is right. Oakos has em and for cheap too.

^^That's pretty much it. Just add two more for the rally wing look. YMMV.

160 buckssssssss?!?!?!?!?!??! 143 at OAKOS but still?!?!?!??! Screw that. I was about to order two but at this price NOOOOOOOOOO WAY!!!

Anyhow, nice job with the vinyl but that wing brace has to go man. At least try making the triangle follow the "flow", make it point backwards instead of forward. I like the carbon shaft round stock; how did you mount that to the top of the wing??

Anyhow, when I think about it, better that than $300 for two Perrin braces. Sick pricing man, sick.
