Ghetto-Fab Wheel Skirts!

Check out my wheel skirts... couple bits-o-tarp, some welding rod, and white duct tape!! LOL

Seem to be holding up quite well at highway speeds!

Looks good. I would just make sure that they aren't flapping in the wind at all. If they are you are likely loosing any benfit they may provide.

thanks.

hard for me to tell with absolute certainty... but they don't seem to be flapping or anything. they're relatively tightly tapes on there. i mean they're flexible, but i'm pretty certain they're not flapping or anything.

Those Metro cars must be the easiest cars to dent. I popped out about 6 dents in my Metro. The fender skirts could be sturdier, but should serve it's purpose. I see you have no rear view mirrors, but yet you have a radio antenna on there. Did you see my write-up on relocating the antenna on THIS THREAD

i did... you posted after i glued that antenna in there. LOL. that'll be the next thing on my list. thanks for the how too!

ya... they are easy to dent. as you can tell from the pics. LOL. actually there's fewer there than when i got it. i knocked a few out. forgot to do the one on the drivers door when i had the panel off and have just been too lazy to pull it off again to knock it out.
