    Brake air deflectors

    I "stole" this idea from the EVO- it's a factory option that helps direct air into the back side of the rotor.

    This goes along w/ my most recent rendition of air ducting up front- Fog lamp brake ducts

    this should also work well w/ the oem ducts.

    I made a "prototype" out of card stock paper and then cut pieces out of ABS plastic, heat gunned them and bent them at a 90

    Looks like this:

    The finished pieces installed ( slightly different shape- had to redo thema little after checking lock to lock clearances)

    This should help direct air into the back of the rotor

    Those brake deflectors are pretty cool. I saw some on a Porsche and wanted to make some for my Subaru. Looks pretty cool.
