Default Brake duct kit?

Are there any vendors who make full front brake ducting kits for 1st gens with Wilwood brakes? Seems like a super common setup to justify making these. I don't want cheap plastic universal ones like the Allstar stuff.

I'm running Wilwood Aero6 14" brakes and I'm looking for fully ducted backing plates. Needs to work with the Wilwoods and have the inlet where it won't interfere with the sway bar, tie rod or anything else on a 1st gen.

I can figure out the hose and the inlet ducts, going for a single 3" or 3.5" setup. I'll be coming in directly from my front lower air damn. I won't be running fans.

Any leads on where I can get the ducted backing plates for Wilwoods? Has anyone made these before and would be willing to make me a custom set?

This universal kit looks promising but no idea if that backing plate will work with a 1st gen: https://howeracing.com/products/brake-duct-kit
