I just took a closer look at your pictures - no front end opening makes your vehicle a "bottom breather" so yes, the flap will be helpful at speed, which I believe was exactly your point.
It's allright, no harm done. I'll take professional input when ever I can.

I wonder if Z06-style flaps infront of the tires could help divert air over them. I can't remember if they were for down force or to move air around those fat tires..

Lets see how far it can go

"All I know about music is that not many people ever really hear it. [...] But the man who creates the music is hearing something else, is dealing with the roar rising from the void and imposing order on it as it hits the air. What is evoked in him, then, is of another order, more terrible because it has no words, and triumphant, too, for the same reason. And his triumph, when he triumphs, is ours." -Sonny's Blues
