Ok, I just put the freedom design hatch wing on. Kinda scary....it's only held on by apoxy....
I applied it well, placed it on and slammed it down. I used about 60 feet of masking tape, cause it startted to move
I guess my question is, the instruction says 30 minutes, how long should i really wait before i go testing this thing at 75+ Mph?

I'm assuming that if the instructions say so, that specific epoxy is designed to adhere within 30 minutes...that or else the people at freedom design are
...could be either one

Epoxy? Mine is straight up bolted on (had a shop do it). Damn I wish I knew you could epoxy it on, cause then it would be easier to get OFF, JK, i like the mid wing.

BTW...it's the upper hatch wing
It seems to be holding, but that also could be due in part to the 60 feet of masking tape that I place all over my hatch. It look's like thousands of birds just flew over my house and $hit on my car.....from a distance...that is.

Re: (wug)

Well, an hour and a half after applying it, look's great! Doesn't feel like it's going anywhere. There epoxy pushed out a little on one side, and it's still a little bit mushy. I'm just going to keep it under 55 tonight. I'm still not going anywhere for another hour.....Hope it stays there!
