Update

I got the first one done (except for painting).

Open




closed:







After some adjusting to narrow the gap:




Off for priming:


I should have time to make the other one before the paint come in. My car color is special order at the auto parts store. I also need to get the car washed before I can epoxy on the right (front of car) side lower bracket. I my also add some epoxy to the hinge mount to give it more strength (epoxying the back side of the screws should make them fun to take off).

One note on what I did. I made a paper outline of the wheel well then added .5" to .75" to it before cutting. I then bent int the extra material to form a rounded edge so as not to rub the car. It also allowed for size tweaking. These tabs also should help keep air from getting under the skirt.
