welcome, old school.
I was in Mini Truckin' magazine in '88 and Lowrider magazine in '89 with my highly-modded Nissan Harbody. Never a cover or feature but if the truck makes the pages... it makes the pages. ;) Ya got a few decades on me but I'm eager to learn some of yer old school tricks.
I don't know of an after market brake shield that fits perfectly but those are always pretty easy to fabricate. I'm sure they are available I just don't know who or where.
welcome again. enjoy that ride

old school joe ,hi grinner thanks for answering my email ,i guess in time they will make those wheel covers , i was looking at the dodge 2005 ram hood scoop it looks like it will fit the magnum curve and its all metal and bolts on , i am going to the dealer and ask him if i could lay the scoop on the hood to see how it looks, i hate to change the hood , see you later joe

well i adopted a 2005 dodge ram hood scoop to my 2006 srt 8 it looks good , it just didnt fit had to drill threw the underhood cross members and than drill a 1 and a half round holes with howl saws to get at the bolts to put the nuts on , it was a project but it was worth it ,the inferno paint matched good , thinking about putting side lake pipes on it ? still pondering?

Welcome to the forum. Post some pictures of the new ride with the scoop, it sound like it might be pretty cool.

hi its not only the brake dust , its the wheels with the shields i will paint them the same color of the car and it would give me more of the look i am looking for i like the wheels from the fifties and the sixties i dont like the open look to see the rotors and brakes , i would love to put white walls tires on it , old school , i used wheel shields for years and they never heated or burned up

Thats a little odd, I have never heard of that happening before. You may want to look into the MagnaFlow lifetime warranty though. Here is a link to their website.
