Pics of stock passenger ducting

Recently got my car back from the bodyshop, truck had some debris flying around and messed up the bumper. Got it back and there were some cracks in the passenger duct area and they "supposedly" fixed it with a new duct. Appears to be installed incorrectly with zipties smh.

Was wondering if some of you guys could post some pictures of the stock bumper ducting on the passenger side?

Also, what is the cooler on that side for? Mine is covered in gunk... I thought there would be something to cover that up so its not totally exposed..

Not good, not good at all. The cooler needs to be cleaned out, not sure how it got that bad. Also, you need to come up with an underbelly solution. Ill be back shortely with the pics you requested.

As promised, keep in mind, I have an aftermarket turner plate however the OEM felt corner perform the same function in terms of acting as a fastener.

Here is the piece your missing. It's expensive, the car can run without it but it's there for a reason.

And that piece would also prevent the gunk from getting in there? I'll see what I can do in regards to piece missing. Don't know why it is not there...

You're missing the undertray. I'd be pissed they tried to slip that by you.

Appreciate the help guys! Certainly wasn't like that prior or I would have noticed when washing the car. Looks like I'll be giving them a call tomorrow...

I have no idea how that got like that, looks like something the autobody shop did (that's a stretch) however not sure how you would get such uniform buildup outside driving into tar.

Paint work is good supposed to be the best shop in this area. I notified them about the issue last week and they are getting all the parts to replace the under tray.
