fender skirt attachments

the skirts on my Wildcat have broken the supports twice on the front, now the rear too. This is the skirt on the slide so there's no way to brace it back to anything for support. Going down the road they flop a lot and it pulled one screw out then pulled the other one through the skirt. Anyone come up with a better way to support/attach them? The factory uses a left over piece/dropoff of the trim pieces made out of aluminum. Thinking of using some 1 1/2" 16 gauge angle.

Got it all fixed last night. Used some 16 gage angle in lieu of the stupid/cheap aluminum for kickers. Self tapper into the slide out frame, reused the skirt attachment points. I'll try to snap a photo or two. Nice and sturdy now.
