Default pics of my diy side skirts and front splitter / chin spoiler

***CHECK THE OTHER PAGES FOR THE ANSWERS TO SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT THE THREAD***

so here they are. i wanted to post some pics of my diy side skirts and my front splitter / chin spoiler (which ever you like to call it). the pieces werent really that easy to make, but i love the way they turned out. i just wanted to help anyone out who may be considering putting these on their c5 by giving an example of what it will look like. hope this helps, pm me with any specific questions you may have. thanks

by the way, these are made of 3/4 inch pvc board. thick and durable plastic. an excellent material for this application.

Does he have another thread with the earlier stages? I'm interested to see the early stages and the raw materials... The end product looks pretty impressive to say the least.

Very nicely done.

I'm curious if the PVC board you're using is flex-able to bend slightly. I'm thinking about making a custom piece for the rear bumper to match my side skirt/splitter setup.
