I think you should spray that wing or at least the supports body color. Maybe all of it and leave a center strip black (Width of hardtop).

Spending money on paint is very low on my list. My main concern at this point is protecting the carbon fiber pieces from the Florida UV. I am considering this:

http://www.kleers-usa.com/the-carbon-uv-protector

In other news, my buddy Anish @ Speed Freaks USA ( http://speedfreaksusa.com ) hooked me up with Chris @ #GRIDLIFE ( http://www.grid.life/ ) who needed another car for his booth at the Import Aliance Spring Meet @ Atlanta Motor Speedway. This is definitely not my scene, but since Chris's events are trying to combine Import events with HPDE/Time Attack events and music festivals. He wanted some actual track vehicles for his booth. We will have the Nine Lives Racing S2000, my S2000, a more stance S2000, and a K series swapped Miata from K Miata ( http://www.kmiata.com ).

We have Gridlife eventz here total zoo, lots of rice. But good mix too. Some hard core trackers.
Umm cost? You can get that wing painted for under 150$ and never have to worry about UV. Shit I'd donate to that cause.

110,000 miles. How is the bumper fit on your car? Remove your bumper and see if it still fits.

Yeah they brought down a large contingent of S2000s from the Chicago area and @aCab showed up. The #GRIDLIFE events sound like a great three day event. I like that normally the tracks shut down at night and everyone goes to a hotel and a few camp, but this sounds like the party continues through the night. He told me the idea is to get more of the show car guys into doing track events and he is looking to expand to the Southeast possibly. I might end up making the drive up to the Gingerman event to run the time attack since I haven't run there yet. If I were to remove the wing and take it to a paint shop it would be to add some coats of clear. It just seems weird to have a body color painted wing.

If you go to Gingerman let me know, I'll make the trip. Good track, smooth.

Color matched wing is a man's game.

Yeah but dat is OEM. Show me a color matched Voltex or APR wing on an S2000. I can't remember seeing one.

Looks like some rice rockets, remove your vehicle from those photos. Are those autozone tri-spoke wheels?

Here is a color matched Voltex. (Not S2000)
