i have seen these on some cars, its a shield/deflector between grill and rad support and is supposed to force more air through rad.forget what they are called .im looking for pros/cons from users of these.are they worth the money?
i need all the cooling help i can get.
I made mine 12 years ago but there is a place that is making them. I've seen them on ebay and there was a post about them here on steves somewhere.It certainly does force more air to get through the radiator. I did mine more to clean up the area between the grille and rad support. A couple o screws per side removed them to let me clean out the bugs. [IMG][/IMG]
62 and 65 hood latches and side supports are different. 63-64 are the same. Since the Classic application says 63-4 only, my guess is there are differences.
I bet that these covers, combined with the lower chin spoilers, would really make a difference. I'm planning on notching my radiator support, right above the chin spoiler and behind the bumper, to maximize air flow.
It might sound silly, but I bet it stiffens the front end a little bit too.
