To be truthful, it's kinda hard to see, but after knowing what I am looking for they look good.

Thanks. Yes, they are quite in the shade so you have to look closely to see them.

Got the RPI splitter on mine. Thinking about the skirts. Did you do the install yourself? If so, how difficult were the skirts?

Are you going to the Kingston meet 22 - 24 June?

Your vette looks great, BTW

OY VETTE. Seriously love that.

How was the fit? Did you do the install yourself? What's your experience with it? Looks very good, btw. Subtle but effective.

I did the install myself with a couple helpers to hold things in place while I buttoned them up. Very easy to do the side skirts. Even easier than the splitter which wasn’t difficult either.

Won’t be able to make it to Kingston as I have competing plans that week.

Thanks, my DD is OI VEY, so I thought it would be perfectly fitting for the Vette.

I did the install myself with a couple helps to hold things in place while I buttoned them up. Fit was excellent, and actually very easy to install. No issues or challenges to speak of. One of the pre-drilled holes in the side skirts didn’t line up but I easily added a new hole as there was plenty of space.

Thanks.
The ROUSH badges are always a topic of further discussion :-)
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.

Looks great! A photography tip... morning or evening light will show off your splitter and skirts better. Midday light is shadowing them and is too harsh anyway. Sometimes it can't be helped! The early/late sun light also highlights the curves of the vette better too.

Great tip! Thanks....
I was trying to figure out how I could possibly get a better pic where they weren't constantly in the shade....I will try this out tomorrow morning or evening!!

Just noticed we joined the forum this past February - Did you just get your car this winter? I got mine in March.

Yes, I bought it in Feb., then picked it up in March. I’ve been having fun with little changes to “make it my own” Truth is I loved the car and would have been happy to leave it as it was, but waiting for the weather to get better in Toronto, I started seeing all these great ideas and then started buying fun additions to pass the time.
What did you pick up?

Ah, okay that makes sense. I've seen some strange things on the road regarding badges. The best thing was a Dodge Neon with a Hellcat badge.

Again, beautiful C6!

New pics from this morning where you can actually see the skirts and splitter much better. Thanks to mkitt27 for the photography tip.
