Default Adding ZR1 skirts to my Lingenfelter GS... are OEM skirts solid or thin?

I'm looking to add ZR1 skirts to my 2012 Centennial GS and I'm noticing a lot of the aftermarket skirts are just a thin sheet of Carbon Fiber where I thought side skirts were always solid.

Are the OEM side skirts "solid" meaning they're a half inch thick or more or are they just a 1/8" thick like what I've seen from the aftermarket? Do they flex or anything if you were to hit something like a speedbump (I'm always approaching at an angle anyway so it would be rare).

The OEM side rocker extensions of carbon fiber are thin. I would be shocked if any aftermarket supplier would make these 1/2" thick regardless of material. I have a 2011 ZR1 plus a 2019 stage 2 aero Z06 vert.

Hey Leif, hope all is well. The OEM C6 ZR1 skirts are pretty thin...nothing I would consider spectacular at all. I've yet to have any issues with speed bumps, so I can't speak to that.

I saw on another post you're at 600+rwhp. What all have you done to the LPE GS?
