Dream Wheel Skirt. Am I Crazy?

sooooOOooooo, this is a dream mod of mine, mostly because I would love to see if it had a quantitative effect on my FE.

But my idea was a modified rear wheel skirt with an aerodynamics fairing for the tire. It would be one piece addition to be attached to the body panel through existing holdes. A picture is worth a thousand words, so check out the attachment.

I was wondering whether the more experienced persons on this forum believed a modification like this would be decidedly more advantageous than a stock** wheel skirt.

I think it would give my car a solar-car look =P lemme know what you think!

**one that just extends the lines of the car body over the wheel
