    I haven't seen the back window louvers in many years, and have never seen one of those wings. I agree on riveting it back on.

    There's a lot of wrong stuff on that thing. Side scoop takes the cake for me tho. No side mirrors either. Guess they interfere with the side scoop. Wtf!? LMFAO

    My mom always told me to try to find something nice to say, even when difficult.

    Um...I like the wheels

    I like it, but honestly, I'd probably just 2 sided tape it on. Or seam seal it. I have my solar panels 2 sided taped on my camper and they haven't blown away yet.

    Did y'all notice the custom antenna? First one I've seen like that. Not too shabby. Rather have the windshield one but, don't look too bad.

    Personally, I'd use 2-sided tape along the mid section, then use nutserts in the ends. I'd also countersink the holes and use stainless Allen screws.

    Notice how this Wing is different. It goes down the side of the cab as well
