... The fender skirts are kit pieces that I think are the same as those in the 40 Ford panel truck, the same one that is at Hobby Lobby right now as the Three Stooges kit.
That's one of my favorite parts kits for doing late 40's/early 50's style customs. It comes with baby moons, flipper caps and decent hop up parts for an under hood installation of a Nailhead Buick, as well as the original AMT '40 Ford Coupe/Sedan kits' fender skirts. I have that kit in my stash and will give the skirts a good. hard look. With your shiny paint they come out way more "bubblicious" than I remembered them. I'm planning a chopped AMT '36 Ford from the same period and want some of that bubble over my rear wheels!
