Vehicles with fender lips are not designed for fender skirts. They're ugly :-)

I would have said, "awkward" myself.
But yes, the wheel-well lip does not enhance skirts.
To look correct on an FC, you would need to do one of two things.
Remove the original designed wheel lip on the wheel-well, or create some of those "Phantom Skirts" that would go all of the way to the rear of the fender.
Personally, I think that the best look would be to move the wheel-arch waaay down.
But, aside from the involved body work, there is the increased difficulty in changing tires. eye rolling smiley

Poor Dave, doesn't know the difference between "Fender-skirts" and "Fender-dresses".eye rolling smiley

Maybe this analogy will help him.
Dave, think of a "dress" as a Bikini.
Now think of a "skirt" as just the bottoms.
Uh, maybe we should just forget about analogies.
I can see this heading in the wrong direction real quick!eye rolling smiley
