Has someone put together a kit to connect the OEM front lip spoiler ducts to these prawns?

I'm not sure if this is a good implementation, but my front lip brake ducts are going nowhere at the moment.

Even if someone were to do a kit, we wouldn't recommend using it. Those lip ducts don't move enough air. We route the ducts inside the undertray, then go around the radiator and run the duct hoses up to the corners of the mouth.

Thanks Savington, that seems like a common solution I've seen at the track for front bumpers without factory brake ducting.
