    Soooo....
    Been tossing around the idea of doing a little panel venting....
    I picked up a set of OEM "A Panel" fenders....

    Thinking of maybe cutting the fenders in kind of a reverse "7" ..... follow the outside edge of the black electrical tape and do a lot of eye "squinting" to get the idea.... The "cuts" would then be pushed inward and along the front inner facing edge woven SS mesh would be added (facing the tire tread) if you get the idea floating around in my head....:crazy:

    Still playing around with ideas....

    Feel free to comment on thoughts / ideas / suggestions....

    Is the goal better cooling for the brakes or simply for stylin?
