    Corvette Central; search brake ducts (not carbon fiber but you'll scrape the crap out of it anyway)

    Thanks, I am aware of these.
    I am not happy w/ setup.
    I think I will have to create 2 carbon fiber squared boxes. insert screen covers on to prevent debris build up.
    drilling 2 holes thru the dust shield.
    a 3" hose ducting connected from the carbon boxes thru dust shield and centered at the rotors.

    I've seen some on ebay at time for race cars (sprint/midget) that might work.

    Corvette Archive, you are a very smart guy. you know the faces and places.
    hey bye the way thanks for the seatbely recall info.

    you know, i took apart the lower wheel housing for cleaning.I was just studying my options for install.

    I am going to mount 2 small squared CF boxed below the bumper (L/R) sides next to the air charge opening on lower part of front bumper.
    I am going to drill 3" holes from the wheel housing, route the duct thru
    I just need to figure a few things.

    when wheel turning, rubber not to touch the hose.

    I may probably install a bracket on upper control arm, and place hose in there.
    and cut out a hole in dust sheild and clamp it it tight.
