Very nice Jeff.Thanks for the picys. I have the same set, only mine came from CF Kits. It looks like yours are painted matte black. Is that correct? Also on the mounting, did you use rivets? Mine came supplied with big rivets, yet I've been told by some that they don't hold. I'm trying to decide between matte and gloss black and the proper installation fasteners. Thus my questions.
Thanks

Yes, they are matte black and they nicely match the other trim on the car and the roof. They came with self-tapping screws which I used and seemed to work very well.

The previous owner had a son who was the head of development and engineering at ROUSH. For his dad's birthday, he did up a performance package on the car....aluminum heads, camshaft, intake, manifolds, exhaust, tune.....
They put the badges on the car at ROUSH, I decided to leave them on when I bought the car.
Great story, there are a couple of ex-Roush owners on this site myself being a 2 time Roush owner before I moved to the dark side.

Can you send me a link to which ones you ordered? Splitter and side skirts? I am looking at matte options as well for my red GS! I want it to match the rear matte section on my car

What did you pick up?
Nice pictures!
I got a '08 Atomic Orange Z06. I gotta fix the heads before I start thinking of mods .

clean car!

almost looks like youd be better off in the rear with 305s vs the 285s (im assuming you have on)

Hard to beat ROUSH, they do some great work...wonder why they never expanded officially into Corvettes.

Just make sure it will fit a GS because I think they have different options for wide-body cars.

Thanks....good idea, I do have 285s. Maybe I should look into that next...was starting to run out of ideas on fun stuff to do now that the skirts and splitter are done.

Looks great! Thx for the pix. Could you provide a closeup pix of the back end of the skirts; where the "splash guard" piece joins up with the skirt?

Good question. I would have liked to see what they would have come up with?
