I was going to check back with johncooper.co.uk to see their price, but it doesn't exist anymore..?? I seem to remember theirs to be somewhere around $800 or so(without shipping from UK). At that price, Way's are a bargain. I've seen a lot of cheaper homemade ducting in various posts, but these look the best so far. Definitely on my shopping list. Keep up the good work Way.

Very cool. The ducting is what makes those expensive.

Thanks Mark for posting the link...I had no idea you guys might like it...

Yes, I might paint the rivets black eventually but they are needed to hold them in place inspite of the RTV...the facia flexing will demand fixed hard points or they will eventually pop off...I just wanted make sure they function without failure...if you want a real brake duct that mounts without rivets, you'll have to wait for our WB kit...some of you guys saw the big sketch in person at the Dragon...the critical mass has accumulated since my first hand meeting with Jan and we're now seriously going to get the ball rolling...

Hi Randy...I used the minimum amount of rivets to hold them in place and have plans to paint them black...Four rivets presented a small problem in which the material that was needed to be removed from the facia to clear the funnel shape of the ram duct did not allow enough material left over and still allow the duct to fit flush...you guys will see when you install them...Of course, you guys with a bigger budget than mine may opt to glass them in from behind and that solves the rivet issue...

Ta Daaa...

The standoffs installed in record time...I was moving fast forward in an effort to beat the thunderstorm rolling in on me while I out on the driveway

This is the M7 splitter...when the new material arrives, I'll prototype The ATTACK Splitter...until then...
