Default Sideskirts without different lip

Does anyone have any pics of a c6z with zr1 style sideskirts but the stock z06 front lip?? My driveway is to much of a angle for any more low lol

RPI designs makes a "high-rise" zra1 splitter...I have one and the side skirts scrape before the front end does.

I've got the same issue, you can see where the stock lip rubs going in and out. Cheaper to replace the plastic than a CF for sure.

This is exactly what I was looking to see. Car looks fantastic. If you don't mind me asking which side skirts did you end up going with? They line up perfect with the stock front lip

Thank you, these are the LG skirts. Keep an eye on the FS section and you'll come across some great deals, got these BNIB for $600. Here's a side and close up of them, had them wrapped in Xpel since there's a high chance of rock chips etc.

That's awesome, I would love to get my entire front end wrapped with it honestly. Especially with the roads up here in Michigan....

contemplating skirts for my 427 vert as well and searched quite a bit here on old posts, be sure to also check out C7 Carbon Creations........

fairly priced, and great reviews here by those who already have them..........

also undecided on splitter, due to roads, driveways, and replacement costs which usually will happen over time...

Do sideskirts help keep debris from hitting the qtr panels?

Seems to help some, but I've added the clear SunTek urethane film in areas for protection too.

Living in the country leave me without ever being able to do any of these options.


To many places I go I barely get in and out stock at angles without scraping.

I know the feeling my driveway has a little angle to it and I scrape every time I go in and out and I have to do that at a extreme angle. Which sucks because I plan on dropping my coilovers another inch this spring...
also have these to install

Thanks to those who posted pics. I'm having the same debate.

I'm not a huge fan of the RPI "high-rise", just my preference. I thought their was a vendor which made a "shorter" zr1 front splitter which didn't stick out as far forward? It's not the height of the splitters, just the length when coming up to driveways, bumps, etc.

I think a "shorter" ZR1 splitter would be awesome!
