Now it was time to assemble the 3-piece hoop wing also know as the "bridge wing." It took me some time to figure it out since some parts didn't match up so there was some sanding to be done, followed by some drilling and lots of sweat...eventually I was able to connect everything together and then fit it on the hatch.
The only thing left is to remove the parts and get them painted. I cant wait to see how it'll turn out; I'm really excited because I always wanted to swap out that big, bulky bumper in the back. The icing on the cake is the bridge spoiler...I always loved the look of it on later 944 S2s and 968s.
The downside? The rear has no impact protection since I had to remove the impact absorbers; that the bumper is fiberglass only makes it worse. But as we all know, beauty requires sacrifices now and then, and quite frankly, I don't mind!
