1/4" aluminum. Requires a LARGE rivet gun. You can use bolts along the bottom to make it easier to take off next time.
EDIT: Some folks use plastic rivets. Requires a special SMALL rivet gun.

You can weld nuts onto the skirt support and use bolts.

I found some trick allen head black bolts at Fastenall. 1/4" x 1" bolts, with flat & lock washers on the back. No need to weld on the nuts. Make sure they don't dent the cooling tubes when you install them. Bolts along with plastic rivets in the top part (under the tabs in the step plate area) will make them much easier to remove in the future.
