I'm considering this mod, but I've been wondering: how do the plastic straps hold up after 2 years? It all looks a bit fragile but I can be mistaking... :-)

It's all still in place and working perfectly. I recently did a 1500 mile round trip to The Ring where I did nearly 500 miles around The Ring itself. It's not so fragile as it might look: just a case of using the right size of straps. :thumbsup:

I'm thinking the full-size(!) protection plate inside the disc's may be my first priority, they're missing (fully or partly) on most other performance cars I've seen.

Brilliant job and thanks for explaining it so well. I am going to be doing this mod this weekend and just gathering in materials. Would u say 1m of ducting either side was enough? Was gonna order 3metres just to be safe? Don't wanna be short once i am under the car on a Sunday with no where to go and get some more? But if u ended up cutting the lengths a little shorter than a metre then i could get away with ordering just 2 metres. Cheers again can't wait to get this done.

It's more than 7 years ago since I did this so I can't remember the exact length of tubing required but 3 metres in total for both sides will be plenty. :thumbsup:

Mod all done last Sunday 😎
Track day yesterday, car performed way above expectations, all the work before hand more than paid off. Cooling mod soo cheap and soo good, brakes were amazing. Decided to come right out the front grill (they are now painted black and blend right in)
