The velcro winglet experiment did not work. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> More accuratley, it failed. Badly.<p>I'm rethinking the "Kmagnuss mod" (garage door seal front spoiler). KMagnuss, what's the two week update on yours? Did it stay in place? Did you make it shiny? Updated pics would be appreciated.

Did your winglet go AWOL at speed?

Almost. <p>I used a bolt/lockwasher/nut on the winglet strut to reinforce the velcro. After an easy drive around the hood, the bolt was the only thing still holding. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: More Winglet issues; Kmagnuss?? (RexB)

Through my R&D, it is very difficult to just have the winglets held on by velco. Even with 3M tape, you will see a proper tight bracket underneath and some extra support at the top near the fog light. The winglets actually do function as splitters and as such, at speed bring the front end of the car down; if not properly secured...well, you can say good bye to them.

Please don't call it the kmagnuss mod. I didn't invent it, and I sure as hell don't want credit for it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>That being said, I've driven the highway during torrential downpours several times now, and it's still attatched the same as new. I haven't glossed it up with armor all yet, and I still haven't switched to black tape either. Every time I look at it I think two things..."damn that's a pep boys mod" and "it actually isn't that bad".
