APR Wing is RUSTING!
hey guys, man, after i had my APR Wing installed for about 6 months, the side plates have pretty must rusted to a brown/orange color. And now, i check again, and the deck is starting to have some discoloration too!! i have the celica-spec I, its just like the one sold here but it is single deck. i contacted APR and they said they would replace it for me, but i havent told them about the deck yet, geez, i hope they replace it for me. im from socal so i dunno why its rustin, i thought it was anodized.

my bolts are fine, because i coated them with a coat of my sisters clear nail polish, and i recoat them often so it doesnt rust. yea, i dunno, im gonna go to apr in irwindale prolly next week to get it replaced. i wonder if i can pay a little more and get the gt200 deck and side plates instead...

well anyways, i took the drive from torrance to irwindale today to get not only the side plates but the deck replaced also (it also started to discolorate). it was about a 40 min drive to get there and it was well worth it. the apr guys are freakin awesome, they replaced it with no charge, and even tho i only had the wing on my car since june of 2003, they said that i had received the 1st generation of the apr aluminum wing, which was from about 2.5-3 yrs ago. wow, but they still replaced everything and even gave me another gt300 poster. APR is awesome, i support them all the way.
