Nothing really, it was my color code. I believe they have the Ford black as well, I did use a plastic primer first and I got some outdoor weatherproof double sided tape to stick it on before I boltede it in. But I am going to take the wing back off tomorrow to put some sealer aroud the holes, cause I didn't do that. Too much in a hurry I guess, now I'll go to Pep boys and see what kind of sealer I should use for the holes.

TFB designs on the sticker, you can have it say whatever you want. I did use silver niteshade on the light first, so thats why the letters are silver, it looks even cooler with the brakes on. use the code FRESH11 to get free shipping, just be sure to post a pic in the TFB designs thread

Thanks man, but I am going to stick with SVT parts, I agree the RS one is sick!!! Due to funds I can't.

Plus I got SVT sideskirts coming, and I am still on the hunt for SVT wheels. If I can't find SVT wheels by the time my tires go bald, I'll just order them from Tirerack. My tires cost me $600 for all 4, Tire Rack sells brand new SVT wheels and tires for 600.

Also I got an SVT degas cover coming, looking for SVT Hvac controls and a few other SVT parts as well. Only other Euro part I am thinking about doing is Euro sidemarkers on OEM fenders, I am kinda torn betewwn that and doing something that nobody has though of which is making vent covers that will look similar to the ones seen on the '08's.

So by the time I am done my car will have headed in a good direction.
