What material is the skirt itself?
I do all my Eco-Mod shopping at the Home Depot The "hose" is 3/4" PEX tubing, it is very flexable, but I still needed the heat gun to get the curve to fit nice. Then I drilled thru to the fender and used SS screw to hold it in place. I put some strips of adhesive velco between the PEX and the fender so it wouldn't rub thru the paint. The skirt is Fiber Reinforced Plastic panel, you know, the bathroom wall 4x8 sheets that have the bubble texture. It's fairly strong and flexable and thin so you can make a tight fit.
I read about a lot of different skirt mounting ideas till I combined a few to get what I wanted.
