Yes you got two extra quarter panel pieces. MAKE SURE you have the feet of the stripe on the BOTTOM when installed. I can't tell you how many cars I've seen with the feet on top. Your first piece with the bird will show the foot on the bottom. AND the stripe is not in the center of the scoop. it is in line with the roadrunner emblem.

Check the archives here, there was a thread on the bird & dust trail location a while back.
I remember looking through it and also some google images, and the dust trail is as stated, not centered in the scoop.
That's also what I recall from when they were new.
Some probably came through incorrect or uneven, though.
Rick Ehrenberg (Mopar Action & member here) seems to have the factory measurements for all that stuff.

according to the engineering drawing, the "dust trail" is not intended to be a straight line - it "wanders" up & down from its starting height

correct -the stripe goes about 1/3 down from the top of the scoop
