So, in order to limit that material to just showing up on the top of the wing, I have to use a technique called a Selection tag. The way the selection tag works is that you first need to select some polygons. Then, once you've selected those polygons, you can identify them using a special tag that then gets used in the material tag to limit where the selection shows up.
