What was your plan for wheel covers, and when do you think you'll do those?
As soon as I go back to the sign place asking for more coroplast, or if McTimson goes there and ends up with extra. (I saw an ad on craigslist for WTB: coroplast. I replied to the poster and said I was looking too, and that we should let each other know if we find any - that person ended up being ecomodder member McTimson ).

My plan was either to cut up existing wheel covers and gluing circular coroplast pieces to them, or just attach the coroplast by wires or something... I often go into things with a vague plan and improvise. The pictures were taken at my parents house where there is a garage fully stocked with junk, material, and drawers and drawers of fasteners and parts. Whatever I do has to (at least for the rear wheels) be as flush with the wheel as possible, as you can see in the last picture of the passenger side wheel skirt that wheel cover - that had to come off because it jutted out too much and brushed against the skirt.
