I know it is a cultural language thing, but I am unsure of what a wheel spat is.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

If they're mud flaps, they can easily be made from Evergreen plastic strips or sheets. Don't ever recall ever seeing them in a kit.

Yep, fender skirts.  For some reason we called them wheel spats here in Oz.  Sorry, scalepeter, but I don't know which kit may have them, or if '56 or '58 Chev parts would fit.  Cheers

Thanks everyone.  Should have asked for fender skirts,  cultural differences.  I have a set for  58 but didn't want to have to modify them to fit.

The Revell '57 Belair convertible kit has the skirts as well.
