Awesome. Great to see another set of wheel skirts join the fleet.

I have a theory that rear wheel skirts help more on cars where the back wheels are set close to the back of the car - meaning, there's not enough bumper cover behind them where flow can reattach before turning into wake. Typically that means small cars.

Anyway, very cool work & looking forward to watching the progres.


Housekeeping question: some of the photo sizes (big) are wreaking havoc in my browser - do you have an intermediate size option you can link to @ photobucket?
