Is it functional? All can be forgiven if it is.
hm.. I can accept it there but I'd like to know what it looks like in person without it there.I highly doubt that fender vent is functional, doesn't seem to provide any real function. Usually vents on fenders are purposely their to help cool brakes down, how much air can really pass through that if any.
Plus the SS probably doesn't need it's brakes to be cooled in that way.
