Mystery front splitter aero?? Wisdom needed

-

I have been looking everywhere for the carbon pieces under the front lip. Anyone have any clues on who makes these and where I can find them? My conclusions are 1. They are proprietary to the the 99 spec lip since they compliment the section of the outer surface 2. Custom pieces

The full article on the car can be found here >> Colin?s ?BOSS 7? Mazda RX-7 ? Tuned. International << with no clues to the origin of the parts...

They're misappropriated from some other vehicle, I believe.

I want to believe that, but at the same time this photo shows how complementary the shape is




Also, this cross-view of the front end shows how fitting the carbon shape is to the lip.. pure coincidence?

Pure coincidence. It's why you can put an upside down volvo lip on an FC.

Slightly off-topic, but, IMO, anything down that low should be flexible. Otherwise the slightest impact will destroy the possibly expensive extension.

Although I've shattered a carbon lip in the past, I like this look, time to explore options
