Cool Airdams Now Available

Post by JT68 » Tue May 14, 2019 11:18 am

These are new exact reproductions of the airdams made by Rising Sun&Scott Sheeler back in the day.

The new production version is nicer quality than the originals, but correct vintage look.

These are the deep "track style" depth and are easily trimmed below the brake duct for street use.

Intro pricing available, pm or email for details .

(I'll add a link when they are up on the website) Limited quantities available now.

They fit exactly like the ducted airdams sold for the last few decades, since it is an exact copy of those.

Install and fit will depend on the care and effort you put into it- I strongly recommend having a body shop do the install- its certainly not a 15minute job even if you are are a body man. A body shop can easily trim and blend the edges to your preference. For street use, fender welt in the joint adds a nice touch for a pro look. For street use you will want to sand, prime and blend to taste. For race cars, no need for that, probably just DUZ fasteners.

Also as a detail, the upper,outer mounting lip (above the brake ducts and towards the fenders) is purposefully just a little long to fit fenders that have been "tweaked" and repaired. It is very quickly dressed to fit YOUR fender with common body shop tools. A little long is easily addressed, too short would be a problem.

Just like every roadster airdam I've ever seen, these certainly require some body shop skills to finish off nicely - buyers should understand that-
The result is certainly worth the effort tho!
