Front Wheel Skirts are a Go!

Since everyone loves front wheel skirts, I felt I should
invite everyone to my '03 Tacoma Prerunner thread to check out the latest install.






Questions and Comments are appreciated. I tried to provide a few hi-res pix from different angles, so you can see what I did more easily, but there are a few things you can't tell from the pix. Except for the coroplast, the entire assembly is screwed together from steel straps from Lowe's.

Except for the coroplast and the sacrificial cutting board pieces, you mean?

Pretty cool! It'll be interesting to see if/how it helps.

Thanks!

But no, actually, the "push plates" are pieces of clear acrylic left over from a previous project, also from Lowe's. They look like that, because I sprayed them with teflon wax.
