Hi Rich,

The bottom of the body panels curve well inboard of the tire on the xA, and with the Plexiglas, I had to cut it this way to clear the tire. If I can get Coroplas (sp?) I should be able to form a wedge to flare the bottom out (just) beyond the tire, so the bottom edge could be considerably lower down; covering a majority of the tire.

I am going to contact the local sign shop (right in Maynard where I live) and try to get some dark blue Coroplas. If they don't have that, I think I'll use black. The light blue is my third choice, I think. I'll need each to be ~30" x 18"-20". I'm also hoping to avoid needing the aluminum bar...
