Ecky - no wheel skirts on the car. I only ever made cardboard templates that were on for a couple of weeks.

Sad to report I only used the car for about 5 weeks this fall, and didn't add any new mods to it. I put it away last week.

Funny: getting back into the Mirage feels like the height of luxury. So refined! So comfortable!

This was my 5th season with the car.

Given how little I used it, I toyed with the idea of putting it up for sale. But as long as I have a place to store it, and if it's not costing me any (serious) money, I'll probably just hang on to it.

If life circumstances afford me more free time some day, there are lots of big aero mods I'd love to do to it.

Big aero mods ?
You have our full attention !
Testing, and then posting results / video editing takes so much time and effort, but a just a few words on the forum lets us know you didn't give up on modding ( It's really good to see you here .)
