As my '04 was on the lift for the tires to be taken out
for a balance and rotation, I noticed that the plate
behind the front rotors are not completely flat.
The front part of the plate actuall curves medially
towards the center of the car on both the left and right
front. I'm guessing it's to divert air to cool the rotors.
Any thoughts of this anyone? Thank you.

Yup... those plates are sculpted to allow for airflow to cool the brakes.
