I think you got mine and I got yours. I ordered Red and got Blackberry Pearl. I contacted Visual Garage about it and they confirmed the order was mixed up and said they would be sending me the correct one.

Good question. I was thinking that a JG member-member swap might have made sense if proper assurances were in place...

I have not heard back from them yet, but wasn't able to get away from work in time to e-mail them until late this afternoon. Hopefully can post the solution tomorrow.

Re: Shark fin

I missed out on this buy. If there are any incorrect shipments or doubles or any left over ones I would be willing to buy it for the same price + shipping. I can order it from the store aswell but it might save some headache if I can get in on an error somewhere.

Re: Shark fin

I installed my sharkfin just now. I am usually pretty obsessive about following instructions but after assessing the situation I made an executive decision to change up the process a bit and I don't think I lost anything in terms of alignment or adhesion.

Instead of putting tape all over my paint to mark the position, I used a single 3"x3" Post-It note at the rear of the fin to mark my position after centering it up to my satisfaction. The Post-It wasn't quite the width of the fin, but it was close enough that it was very easy to eyeball it and center it properly by gauging the overhang on both ends.

With this method, it makes more sense to apply the rear of the fin first (vs the front as per the instructions). This is what I did. Theoretically I suppose it is possible that this could produce a weaker grip on the front of the fin but I am willing to live with that. I addressed it by making sure I held firm pressure on the front and all around the fin to activate the adhesive. I think I got a strong fit.

If it peels off at highway speeds you guys will be the first to read my red-faced report.
