Default Zeroing in on a sideskirt choice....

Jag's trip east resulted in a perfect photo of the type of sideskirt I have been looking for...one with minimal flat surface. The lighting suggests this. Thank you, sir! But, just to be sure about this observation I want to confirm the concave design...am I right about this? Past experience here in salty road Michigan revealed disgusting deposits of road salt and dirt on the flat board type of skirts I ran before. And, at the interface of the rocker and the sideskirt, the debris collects itself and can only be removed with water spray....not fun when temps are below freezing.

Only question I have (asked with no response) is about road rash on the skirt itself. he C6's were rally bad about stones, dirt etc. coming off the front tires and scratching the side skirts.

Do you know if the C7 has better protection from road rash on the skirts ?

Good for you....all the pics up to now had so little contrast I could not tell what the profile looked like...even the vendors never developed this aspect.

Lashway street skirts: I had them fully wrapped in Xpel which I highly recommend (although a daunting task with all the angles). And add the GM wider mud flaps. Great look, easy to ingress and egress, and good protection. Yes, you will have a few small rocks and debris land on top of the splitter, but that is where Xpel is key. And damn it looks good
