Here's a poor drawing representation of the model I have, it shows the air deflectors on the side and and the bracing for the mounting, it will be drilled into the top of the air dam to mount it since that's the best idea I've got.

Any vehicle is a bundle of compromises. There are some aero modifications that can benefit handling— like a boat tail, which doesn't benefit overall length (parking, etc.)

Consider the infinity wing. A little fillip at the trailing edge might act as a vortex generator that functions as an air curtain over the front wheel, without the normal internal ducting. I see some possibility there.

As for the alignment question, it's really about the stagnation point. Flush or a little forward is prolly best.
