Brake cooling duct
« on: September 07, 2019, 08:13:33 pm »
Besides the headlight, where else have the brake ducts been tastefully located?

I bought some rectangular ducts, but no good way to fit them. I could notch the valence and make them work.  I was thinking something in the turn signal area..

Pics?

I make Fiberglass brake ducts specifically to fit the turn signal area on 1969-70 Mustangs.  The fit is excellent and The cost is $190/pr. I have photos but I don't know how to post them.

Very cool. How do they mount? I was thinking to fasten to bottom of the bumper where the 2 fasteners are.

Pics have to be hosted somewhere. I use supermotors.  Then you can click on a link that has the bulletin board code.  Or you can cut the webpage name (that ends with .jpg) and insert it between the code tags.

The code tags are written in brackets.  If you click on the little box below the “B” in the icons above where you type a post, it will insert the code with brackets. Paste your website address. With no spaces.

Thanks to Danoh1, I figured out how to attach photos.  These photos are of the latest rendition of my Mustang Boss302 front brake ducts.  I used to make them out of aluminum, but it was very time consuming and expensive.  I then pulled a mold off of a set of aluminum ducts and the brake ducts were laid up using fiberglass mat.  this latest rendition is made using lightweight 4 ounce cloth.  Very light and very strong.  Just attach to the bumper. and attach 3" hose.

I won't be at COTA this year.  I'll be shuttling our La Carrera Panamericana race car down to Los Angeles from Bend Oregon so the team driver can then take the trailer down into Mexico for the start on October 8.  Please email me at maecomotorsport@gmail.com . Give me your address and I will compute the shipping charges.  thx
