I'm sending one to Fergus so he can make a mold. Basically a freeby for the 311 group. Found a place here locally who will make them too since the place I used to use went out of business years ago. I'll get a quote for reference or you can contact Fergus FergO2k to see what he has planned// jt
Excited for this! Keep us posted JT. I’m sure whatever you come up with will be premium quality.

Might I suggest that it be designed like how mine turned out being modified to, where the vertical mounting lip is deleted or reduced in size. I found the unit to be quite strong and has mounted up well with small screws and nuts drilled upward as I described earlier. I may be able to provide a pic shortly.

One for me too please. Though I might miss feeling like I'm doing 180 when I'm only doing 110!

based on Jake's comment above I have to ask what are the real benefits of this Air Dam if any on a street car ?

Fergus,
If you could make one with brake ducts, I would be up for one.
I have two of CDM air dams and I blocked off the brake ducts on both.
If you want to copy one of his and he approves, I can loan you one of mine.
They do not have the upper lip.

I can tell the difference at highway speeds on my car with stock suspension. My Lowered car with larger dampening not so much.

I have an original BRE front spoiler on my 67 1600 vintage race car. With that said if a copy of the BRE one is to be copied I would suggest you either get permission from Pete Brock or modify it and not call it the BRE spoiler! I wouldn't want to upset Pete and certainly wouldn't want anyone on the hook for producing something without permission.

I bought mine from Les Canaday at Classic Datsun Motorsports. I don't see him on our vender list anymore.
