I got enough time to make my right side front wheel skirt and trial fit it to the car.

I previously had mounted the rear skirts on the front wheels, here is the left side.

You can see that the coverage is poor.

My right side unit looks like this.

The fairing covers the entire front aspect of the wheel.

And a 3/4 view.

Right now the wheel fairing is a single layer of carbon covered with some pink micro type filler.

“There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”
