T3: RE: Rear skirt repair

I don't know what to say as my lower rear apron is missing (see my web 
page) and you can see the exhaust headers and such.  I plan on installing 
one that is easily removable, though.  Reason: It makes repair work easier 
with that little apron removed (say, like, removing an engine and tranny... 
;).  But, as John J. and I know, and by my personal experience, you should 
have that apron there.  It helps reduce the lower vortices that occur back 
there and this lowers the vehicles coefficient of drag.  It also keeps the 
amount of road debris and exhaust from curling back up to the hatch and 
window area (especially if you develop an oil leak... ;)

I was recently rear ended( well my square was). Now I have  some insurence 
coming to me. I also have a part car with a good rear skirt. How easy is it 
to swap it. To me it looks like it is welded in place. If anybody has worked

in this area what did you do, what were some of the problems.
Replace or fix, that is the rub.
