you're reading too much into it, trust me i did too till i got down to bidness

all kidding aside, is not hard after you cut the ducts you'll see that there is no need to connect nothing to the wheel liner and there is still going to be more than plenty of airflow on both sides.

here are a few pics so you can kind of get an idea

ducts installed on bumper (with 3m double sided tape)



left duct on bumper (could be trimmed more if you want more air to flow directly to the whole in the fender lining)



right duct on bumper (needs no trimming but i trimmed for ease of install)



finished
