    Looks so good from where you started. Any chance of close up pics of the skirts and the inside setup that you have to keep them attached ?? Mine don't fit like yours and I am wondering what I need to do to modify.

    Mine are stock foxcraft skirts like these....

    http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/1949-1951-ford-foxcraft-fender-skirts-nice.963798/

    The spring loaded legs on the bottom hold it on each side, and the lever hold it tight to the top.

    Hey, this car ended up in Santa Barbara, CA.

    Has anyone from that area seen it out and about?

    Man, I loved this car!!! Great build thread. I based the chop on this 49 I did, while working at bear metal Kustoms, on your car. Awesome work man!!!
