How do they match up with the wheel wells?
They fit exactly like the ducted airdams sold for the last few decades, since it is an exact copy of those.
JT, thanks for making these!
For dummies like me, to address Sid's question about fender edge fitment does your airdam look like this:

or this:

Or neither?

You are welcome Alvin. Probably most like the NOS car version depending.

You could probably get the look of the 2nd white car if you mounted it as far forward as possible and trimmed it like that, but it comes nearly all the way back to where the fender starts to bend away from horizontal. If you are trying to blend into the flare curve transition exactly, a body guy would probably need to do that. How you will trim it out also probably depends on how virginal your lower fender valence is too.

Here it is mocked up on a friend's car. Sorry for the contrast, but you get the idea. You can see where the mounting surface will need to be sanded back/trimmed if trying to match the fender line exactly for street.

Again, this is simply a copy of the classic design with the extended lower valence. If you trim away the lower section, it looks pretty much identical to the others.

Yep, we left it full length as designed for track cars. Trim just below the brake duct for the typical street look and to avoid speed breaks. Depending on how low the car is you could leave a bit below the ducts as shown in the two white cars shown above. Pretty universal.

Thanks for the clarification JT! So basically what I'm seeing is folks trimming these differently. Pretty cool that you are offering these!
