Looks like with that template, you can more easily build one from a weatherproof material. Can you get Coroplast easily? That should work well for your application. Looking good, keep it up.
I searched, but it seams the only way I can have coroplast is to steal it from construction sites (it's used to protect some materials).

I found synthetic glass. For the grill block it should be OK. For the skirts it may be more difficult as it may not be flexible enough. I'm realizing that its transparency may not be a good idea...

Finished the second skirt and taped it. The first one didn't moved today during my 60 km (38 miles) daily trip nor the carboard over the hubcap. I may cover the second front hubcap tomorrow and admire my work during the rest of the way, dancing the no-rain dance
I may inflate my tires to 43 PSI (currently 34 and max sidewall at 51).
