My wife has been researching cruiser skirts for her 1955 Ford Customline. The Ford is kind of a hard one, because the factory skirts are really short due to the curvature of the body. I am guessing that is where guys like Jimmy Jones came up with the idea of the bubble skirts. I am still kind of torn on whether I like them or not. I think they look ok with out all of the scuff plates and trim. I think they should flow out the body and sort of disappear rather than bling. The wife said she would rather run no skirts rather than factory/flush fit. Here's something from the archives to jump start your brain. https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/bubble-skirt-history.1057300/ Let's chat about this.
