hinges

Please,don't anyone attempt to do the skirt w/o hinges.The one I did for the T-100,even though blistered out to allow reduced turning radius,rubs at the slightest provocation and is a constant source of stress and displeasure! ------------------------- I'm going to do a double-articulated linkage for mounting the skirt,as it will move like a parallelogram,away and up simultaneously,the skirt always parallel to the side of the car.------------------------------ No benefit aerodynamically,but it will let me play with this mechanism,which I intend to also use for the canopy on the hyper-mini.
