Air Dammmm?

I’ve been thinking more and more about the gaping hole that acts like a sail b/t my bumper and edisco skid plate, and have decided I should do something about it. After getting to the end of the internet, I’ve figured that no one makes the piece I need. So, I broke out the measuring tape last night and the trusty protractor to start taking some measurements for a new piece. I’m at a little bit of a loss as to what metal I’d like to have it built in as I’ve no grasp on metal working, but I have found a local fabrication shop and sent them all of my measurements and crude drawings. I’m leaning towards 6061 Aluminum b/c I think it’ll be a great light weight piece and considering it’s only got to withstand wind & road debris, I think maybe I can get away with a 1/4 or 1/16th inch thick plate? I really don’t know, but I’m meeting with the main fabricator either tomorrow or early next week to discuss and take some very precise measurements before he starts his cutting, bending, & drilling. Hopefully he’ll have some suggestions that aren’t crazy on the wallet.
