the type 89 is totally different, unfortunately.
the type 85 "lower" duct is actually a side and bottom duct. It goes
across the entire bottom frot he bumper to the radiator, and up the
engine side of the radiator as well.
I bought a new one for my coupe maybe ten years ago, it's still in
pretty decent shape, after several accidents, even.
>>Oh, anybody have any suggestion on how to make them last
>>as long as possible? Clearcoat them when I get them?
I'd say, just don't pressure wash them, don't beat them up, and they
will last ok. They are just painted cardboard, though, so a good
coating of something very weatherproof might help.
Also, if someone had a new one, they could draw it and post it so people
could make aluminum copies. Which I am surprised has not happened yet,
over the last five or so years - it is the single silliest "missing"
part on most type 85's, and pricey and hard to get, to boot.
