Instructions to replace the original rear wing with a carbon Knight Racer wing.

Note, these instructions are for the replacement of the wing only, keeping the original outside two legs and the centre leg.
Great for storm White GTR 35's......White legs and carbon wing looks the part.

Note: This method does not require the inside boot lining cover to be removed but at certain times, in this process, three persons are required.

Additional parts required: 6 x round Nissan sticky pads for the 2 outer legs ( same colour as outer leg ) , 6 x round Nissan sticky pads for the high LED brake light retaining rectangular plastic plate in black colour. 6 x bolts ( 10 mm head, 8 mm thread, max 30 mm long, 20 mm could be ok ). 1.6 mm double sided adhesive body shop pad for the centre leg. Dental floss, protective tape and a towel to cover the boot. Note, you may be able to re use the outer leg sticky pads but only if they are carefully removed. The Nissan pads are about 2.30 each plus VAT.

Cover the boot with a thick towel.

Carefully remove 6 round sticky pads from the rectangular plastic retainer plate which is adjacent to the high LED brake light.

Apply *tape around the centre leg to protect the boot paint.

Open boot, keep the boot in the open position

Carefully remove the 3 round sticky pads from the underside of each outside leg

Unscrew 3 nuts on each outside leg, the wing will now be free at each end but will still be secure at the centre leg.

Three persons are required, one person at each end to hold the wing, apply slight upward
pressure. One person to use dental floss or fishing wire to carefully cut through the double sided sticky pad which secures the centre leg to the boot surface. Be careful not to damage the boot paint. Now the wing is free except for the harness. Lift and tilt the wing slightly then unscrew and remove the middle section of the centre leg. Unscrew and remove the outer centre leg body together with the rectangular plastic plate which is adjacent to the high LED brake light. Unplug the electrical harness from the high LED brake light, bit of a fiddle but can be done. Remove the high LED brake light from the wing.Pull the electrical cable through and out of the wing.

Remove wing and place on a protective surface.

Carefully remove the sticky pad residue from the boot surface, clean the boot surface.

Carefully remove the sticky pad residue from the inside part of the centre leg, clean the surface.

Place the new carbon Knight Racer wing on a protective surface

Place the high LED brake light in position on the new wing secure it with tape for the time being. Then two persons are required to hold the new wing in position over the boot and One person to feed the harness through the new wing and connect it to the high LED brake light and secure it in it's final position. Fit the original centre leg assembly and new black retaining rectangular plastic plate. Stick a 1.6 mm double sided adhesive pad to the centre leg base.
Then Position the new wing in place and apply some downward pressure at the centre to secure the centre leg to the boot surface. Make sure that the centre leg positioning lug locates into the hole in the boot surface.

You will need six new bolts ( 10 mm heads, 8 mm threads, 30 mm long ). Secure each end of the wing to each outer leg using these bolts. Once secure apply the 6 round sticky pads over the holes. Then apply 6 round black sticky pads over the holes on the high LED brake light retaining plastic plate. You may choose not to use these pads but I am not sure about water ingress problems.

Test the high LED brake light at the right time in the process.

That's it, ready to go.
Will post a pic if it ever stops raining!?
