Yay, 57th post! For some weird reason, I really like the number 57.
I've been wanting to do this for awhile, so I grabbed some PVC guttering from Lowes, which is about 57 seconds from my house


and fashioned some interwheel strakes.

Painted with Krylon Fusion satin black rattlecan paint, shaken about 57 times:


I'm embarrassed how dirty Olivia is in these shots, but the wife is already complaining how much time I'm spending working on "a car that already runs just fine."

Yes, I know I'm missing a center hub button.

These probably won't do much on their own, but they should nicely compliment the bellypan I want to install later...
