Just about done with the brake ducts for my vette. Heres some pics-

Dust shields cut away, and 3" exhaust tubing welded in place. I had to oval the tube to direct all of the air to the center of the rotor.

I bought 10 feet of 300* 3" brake duct (Just barely enough) and ran it from my front brake ducts up inside the frame rails and over the control arms.

I had to clearance the inner fender so that my control arm doesnt crush the tubing. You can just barely see the cut at the top of the picture.

I still need to fab up two more support rods. If the weather holds up, and I finish some other things Ill be able to get some pics of it completed tomorrow.
