Mugen FK8 Wing has Landed (Not Installed)

Just in time for #MugenMonday! (Sorry, I’m writing this one day late but it did show up yesterday LOL)

This is just a quick post because I was too excited about it only to be extremely disappointed – only because I had set my expectations too high lol. But before we get to that, I just want to say that 9 months is the longest I’ve ever waited for a car part and it is excruciating. I know others that have waited over a year, which at that point, I feel like I’d just probably not care for it anymore LOL. Prior to this, I had waited almost exactly 6 months for my Voltex swan neck wing for the FRS a few years ago. This Mugen wing was delayed 2 times before it finally got here. Now summer is pretty much over and I have the Fit and I’m not sure I’ll have much time to enjoy it now lol.

Anyway, back to the part where I disappointed myself. For some reason I thought that when it showed in pictures and that it came in FRP, I thought that it was at least painted in a gloss black (and I don’t know why I thought that…) but instead it came basically sanded and READY for paint. So here I was, I uninstalled the stock wing and had it sitting and ready to be installed and as I opened the box, I sat there in silence as I RIP’d my feelings. I guess it doesn’t really matter either because I still have to pick up my Mugen lip from paint, so it’s not really complete even if it did come painted.

A lot more boxes/pieces than I was expecting – I guess I shouldn’t be surprised with Mugen at this point. It’s pretty much like receiving OEM parts.

Decals for the side of the wing.

And the wing stands – the one I pulled out before realizing I wasn’t going to be able to put it on yesterday LOL. UGH

Well hopefully I can get it in for paint in the next week and install it shortly after. Stay tuned! Sorry for the anti-climactic post – I was too excited to at least show you the wing stand and decals LOL
