You'd have a small lowrider that needs $$$ in paint.

Just deeper ribs I would guess.

Iíve always believed a very simple bump out half fender skirt would work on the front wheels, you might even get away with gravity and an air cushion moving them instead of a linkage to the steering

Here's my thought:



A four-bar linkage with the top bars connected to prevent racking. It's gravity closed, opening is unspecified. The other consideration is that the leading edge of the skirt should underlap the opening at all times so the air won't catch it.
