All the ones I have seen have been Tom Yancer cars, out of Arizona.

I don't love the look but it would be totally worth it to keep the headers and engine clean.

Plus they are legally considered a rear wing for cars that require one.

They look alot like the fenders on a mini rod pulling tractor. I like them.

Are they double walled? I have to think rock dings would be all over them.

Wasn't too fond of the look initially, but I loved them after I had them installed. They are top quality carbon fiber, strong & light, and rocks did nothing to mine. Worth every penny just to keep the back of the engine clean.

To my knowledge, Tom was the pioneer for these on Sportsman dragsters - did all the design & development work with a supplier who fabs them.
