Got it, duh 🤪. I forgot the stock calipers are ahead of the front axle instead of behind like the Granada’s.

Your backing plates look like they might be the type that accepts the scoop. Good luck finding some!

IIRC they are just a flat piece of plastic. When you "clip" it into the dust/splash shield it forms into a scoop. If you're interested in trying to make a pair I'll see if I can remove mine and trace the outline on a piece of paper.

Thanks, but I’m still gonna move forward with the full brake duct, so I don’t need the scoops. But maybe somebody else might?

Hopefully I’ll get to attack this this weekend and I will post some pics.
