Does it mount the same way as the original Fabulous or bBist Fab style wing?

I have both and they mount the same way w/ U style clips and double sided tape.

Yeah. It's the same thing. Just better looking IMO. Hardly any seam. Plus I know the owner, so said I'd fly it for him. I just need to know where exactly where to put the DS tape and what size allan head screws to use.

I think you should take the camera with you before you go to dinner and do a "Dating DIY" as well :D

Alright, just take the doule sided tape and stick it to the back part of the wing (the part that will be vertical against the car). I didnt put any on the part that is horizontal and mines lasted on over 110 mph runs. Push it strong on their and keep it held up with the help of a friend. Dont let it sag at this point, as I would be afraid it might fall. Then drill out the side dimples, insert U-clip such that it goes on the sheet metal of the back hatch and in the dimple. Screw it down until its taught, but stop when you head the "cricks" of the fiberglass giving way. I went slow till I heard a "crick" then backed it out a half turn. Holds damn good and I think would be hard to get off aside from jumping and holding on to the wing. Does this help?

Make sure you get the wiper hole positioned just right, as some people on SL havent and it looks like sh*t. Take your time and align it right, then press it on. Dont rush this step. Any questions, feel free to PM me or just post up and ask. Ive had mine off 3 times now so Ive gotten damn used to it!

Yeah, I put ds tape along the leading edge on top, and on the sides, but none on the back. Its been there ever since, but I may need to take it off soon.
