Can you make a picture with an arrow showing the exact piece?

I have no idea, but there are no bolts holding it on

It is basically a piece of rubber.
I'm looking for the reinforcement plate that goes between the trunk skin and the frame. Do you know if those can be purchased separately?

Thanks,
Nicholas
I'm looking for the reinforcement plate too. I want that CR wing w/o having to buy the CR trunk.

Would I need to apply reinforcement for a carbon fiber Seibon FT wing on an OEM trunk?

Should I worry about down force and trunk deformation?

The short answer is the reinforcements will fit on any OEM trunk lid and yes the trunk will deform over time without them. In the case of the CR wing it does apply considerable downforce at highway/track speeds so any "engineered" wing will cause the same results.

After installing my own CR wing on a non-CR trunk, I found that the main issue for trunk reinforcement isn't all these small pieces to add afterwards, but bracing the trunk skin itself. I followed someone elses guide where you're supposed to install sheet metal pieces under the wing stands, but that didn't do an amazing enough job either.

I ended up jamming cardboard between the trunk skin and the built-in metal webbed bracing to help combat the flexing, but I'm looking for a more aesthetically pleasing and removable solution still.
