Default New Side Skirts Installed

Finally got my black side skirts installed on my Ď11 Grand Sport today. Love the new look! Easy install. The passenger side fit better than drivers side but still wasnít too bad. With a few adjustments to the pre-drilled holes they worked fine. Ordered them on eBay for $139.

I recently ordered side skirts and a front splitter for my c6 Vette.
Rear wing is next; I then plan to install each piece on my car.

Looks good. I have a set of these in the living room. I'm scared to do it myself because I might mess it up. LoL Did you screw in or rivet in?

I just used some small stainless-steel self-tapping screws with washers. Probably didnít need the washers but wanted to be safe. Good luck!

Were these from WSA Auto ? I have their front splitter which I like quite well so I have thought about these as they would match up
Looks good

The two holes in the front of each side that were to match up with the factory screws were 3/8 off. Once those were redrilled it fit fine on passenger side. Drivers side mudflap didnít line up perfect. I had to redrill one hole for that. Overall still an easy project and love the way they look.

I ordered from ďExtreme Online StoreĒ but it looks just like the picture from WSA. Iím guessing they are identical or darn close.

I've purchased skirts and front splitters from both Extreme Online Store and WSA auto and they are the exact same.

If I remember correctly WSA auto doesn't come with fasteners where Extreme does.

Interesting. I've installed two sets on mine and one on a buddy's from Extreme and they all had self tapping screws taped to the plastic bags the skirts were in.

No instructions though.
