Update 2:

My beloved wheel skirts have been off the car for most of the summer.

When I took them off late last fall to have the car rust treated, a lot of the velcro came off too, despite trying to be careful. I duct taped them back on for the rest of the winter, but pulled them off entirely once the tape started disintegrating this year.

I need to:

1) add a coroplast backing to stiffen them (the krazy karpet plastic is too soft in hot - ie. 25+ C - weather

2) make clips / fasteners to replace the velcro

I got a good start on "1" over the weekend.
