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.
“The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.” George Orwell

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe.

The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed.”

Noah Webster, 1787
