With my car lowered it shouldn’t take all that much filler to skirt the edges of my front tires, but I’m not likely gonna mod my fenders yet

One could line the brushes with thin plastic foil.
I'd like to tilt the brushes forward to create a splitter like lip.

At freeway speeds, lawn edging is thin plastic foil.

I don’t see any backing short of coroplast or lawn edging adequately reinforcing the brush seal at highway speed... that being said, it could maybe so for filling wheel gap or such
