You need enough epoxy left to glue one filament to another anything more is going along for the ride and NOT paying, these vise like pressures with the high curing heat give the best possible Physicals and yes it can be overdone. I had some carbon control surfaces from a fighter jet and they were impressive when looking at a cut edge and the zillion tiny compressed layers of material in there.

Gino, try Robson they make custom CF parts for Lamborghini's http://www.robson-design.com/about.htm Also if you're not set on the SV wing contact SP Engineering for a really nice CF LP wing pic bellow,

I looked at your LP, nice choice. I'm going to go with the monterey blue. Good luck

WOW......IMO, that wing completely kills the look of the car. It should fit in nicely with these though!

I heard you drive slow.....Boats, cars or even a big truck all under the speed limit. Biscayne Bay you never exceed the speed limit in the manatee zone.

I forget what the limit is there but I remember riding in your 39 MTI at 140 mph testing with you and Larry. And we got stopped by the patrol (only because we were stopped) and they let you off. I thought for sure your going to jail for those speeds.

Why not purchase the one in the photo, or is it just a rendering...

You have to buy the rear bumper assebly also. It's off the new LP670. About $34k to add that wing.

This is a friend's company who does a lot of aviation stuff. Not sure if he could help or not, but might be worth a look.
