    I heard positive feedback from ABC and from Kaenen as well. My question is which wing should I get? The ABC wing is made from fiberglass. The Kaenen one from polyurethane. That means the abc one weighs less. Any other pros and cons?

    Oh, ok. I thought the Kaenen was urethane. Does the Kaenen have 4 bolts and does them fit into the factory holes?

    Urethane will allow you to change the shape, if it's twisted or has setled while sitting. That may sound bad, but if you get a firberglass and it doesn't fit, you're screwed. You'd have to send it back and may pay re-stocking + shipping fee.
    I got my urethane wing from Stage3Motorsports and had to do some bending/weights, but it eventually molded to the right shape.
    And no, I don't have pics because I moved and haven't painted the wing yet.

    Kaenen is the BEST fitting and BEST looking Saleen S281 wing you get for your Mustang. With that said....

    Yes, it does take a few phone calls to get a hold of someone at Kaenen, it took me 3 days actually to finally get Kip (owner of Kaenen) on the phone. Kip was super nice to me on the phone, and invited me over to the shop to check it out. I happen to live roughly 1 hour from Kaenen, so I figured why not, cut down the cost of shipping, and I love going to shops to get a visual of how their business is run. Kip was also nice enough to wait for me to arrive at his shop past closing time (I arrived there at 7pm) Their shop is run by only two guys, Kip and his brother. They are ALWAYS out in the shop working, and barely hear the telephone from what he told me. They have alot of deadlines to meet, and they supply body parts to Steeda, CFM, PBF, and other various Mustang racing shops around the country. Kip told me he was going to hire a phone operator in the coming weeks. They must have had 100 hoods on a pallet ready to be shipped, and all of them looked VERY well built, I couldn't find a flaw in any one of them. They also build 32 Ford bodies, they just don't specialize in Mustang stuff. So yes, it does take a while to get someone on the phone, but it's well worth it! They are stand up guys that are just really busy. Leave them a message, and one of them will call you back.

    Tell them to stay close to the phone because I plan to call, too. Or even better could you ask them if they ship to an APO box address? I know it works with usps.
