I had the car rust-treated today, so I removed the rear wheel skirts.

This is the first time I've had them off since I made them back in late April. The velcro did a good job holding them on the car, but as predicted, the glue holding the velcro to the car/skirts wasn't as strong as the velcro itself, and some of it pulled off.

So I've got to fix that. Plus I'm going to put some coroplast backing on the skirts to make them a little bit more rigid. Krazy Karpet gets too soft in the summer - and I may have heard them "flapping" once.
