Default Side Skirts help

I have been looking at the different side skirts available for the C7 std and Z51. There are numerous manufacturers and prices. The style that I like best so far is LG Motorsports but the price is more that what I want to spend. Next is ACS Zero 1 Style at approximately $500.00. Other manufacturers are Lashway, C7 Carbon, and number of other names that escape me know.

I like the way the ACS fit the body. Some of the other brands are flat and just bolt to the under side of the body. I wish the ACS would extend out further like the LG. My thinking is that would be more efficient stopping the stones from hitting the side of the body. Does anyone know of another manufacturer making side skirts like LG, but at a more reasonable price.

I looked on Amazon and found side skirts similar to ACS at lower price. The manufacturer is ???. Just looked at Amazon and now can't find the company, but the price was $299.00. My question is does anyone know the company and what is the quality of their product.

Any help or suggestions in this area is helpful. Thank you a head of time.

My C7 Carbon, GTX carbon fiber style FIT, and WORK perfectly for keeping any stones from flying up the side or towards the rear.

Very Happy with them. My set are Carbon Fiber, but they offer them in less expensive finishes too.

The GTX style, swoop in near the rear on each side to allow for easier entry/exit.

I really like the American Car Craft skirts, in SS with the CF and logo inlay, but not the price. I wish they were $500, then they would be on my car.

I bought these but had a GM Accessories certificate to pay for them. Otherwise I would not have purchased them.

That said, they do fit perfectly and the workmanship is first class, made in the USA of quality stainless steel with your choice of "Corvette" or "Stingray" logos.

My C7 Carbon GTX skirts look fantastic. I am fingers crossed putting them on this weekend. Great customer service too from my experience.

Stay away from G3 Carbon. I hear his product is nice when you finally get it, but customer service is awful. And by awful I mean, I couldn't imagine how it could be worse.

Thanks rmorin1249, I saw your previous post when you installed them and thought they were great. I think the CF and SS would complement my AW and chrome wheels just enough. I don't have the luxury of a certificate to help support the price and as you said it appears to be a quality product. I should give them a call since I think they are less then two hours from where I live, maybe worth a call.
BTW is the SS edging brushed or gloss?
OP, sorry I didn't mean to jump your thread but every time I see a skirt thread I get the itch.
Thanks
Dave

I'm considering RPI's side skirts in CF at around $675, I think people on here that had them were happy and I think they have them in carbon flash for about $500. Z06 style I think.

Default side skirts

Got these for around 4 hundred. They work well and look much better than the others, IMO.

Anything wrong with OEM, or just price?
Anyone with experience with the new version (3/4 length)

The OEMs cost 3 times more than the ACSs and have same quality or better.

I installed the ACS Zero7 package 2 1/2 years ago and have been very happy with the look and the way they protect the car's body from road debris.

Been running C7 Carbon Skirts and front Splitter for 43K miles; attached with 3M tape and OEM fasteners....Skirts have done a good job of saving the paint. I will do it again on my next Vette.

Not sure who made them, got them from the online auction store as a BIN. I'll see if I can get the link for you, if you need it.
