Or a side not Finished.Took a Chance on Corvette Mods.After reading their reviews here.I called to cancel.I was sold by our conversation.
Went with GM Mud guards that blend well with original Spats.Liking the stealth size flaps.Just enough protection.
If you prefer paint to match?These could be painted using proper materials or purchase finished

Original GS and Z06 Stage 1 Shirt 3/4 length


Your Exterior color will make a difference on painted to match or blend. Your choice bottomline

For side skirts, I'm settled on ACS Zero1. Just placed my order.

In you guys opinion, with the side skirts, if I get the ACS enhanced rock guards, will they be wide enough to provide good protection, or would they be lacking in rock chip protection as compared to the XL?

For those with the XL rock guards, any pic standing at the rear wheel looking forward at the guard would be much appreciated.

Makes me wonder if getting the XL's and having them painted body color (LBR) might be the way to go for me. .

To each their own, however personally I wouldn't want those things protruding from my rockers when the GM guards protect as well and you hardly notice them.

Appreciate the response. Sounds good to me. Do the GM guards really do the job? I'm all about "less is more" if it works

How did you position your wicker so low? Mine is coming next week and I'm excited!

Actually the ones you ordered.I returned.Why,Cause they weren't wide enough for my taste.Back in early 2017 the photo's where not that great.My fault,I didn't do homework before order.ACS stepped up after posting what happened here.
I think the original GM Skirts look best but very pricey.ACS Stage 2 Skirts are full length.
Wanted that bump in wide skirt.You won't hit them getting out knowing they are their.
Went with the Bad Company that got thrown out here.Corvette Mods.I called to cancel after the negative here.They asked for me to try them.I did.They still are doing their job.
The GM Guards are just wide enough to work.No issues.
Keeping your Baby chip free is dun 2 different ways.Cover car in Expel for 3-5k and just drive and not worry.Or Skirts,Guards.Keeping distance from trucks,pass quickly.
No tailgating.Turns with stones or loose dirt,slow down.No flap will protect stuck crap flying when turning sharp fast.You'll see it fly by the windows

I have the GM front and rear splash guards on my GS and along with the OEM skirts have no damage even though I have run through unavoidable construction zones where I could hear undersides being pelted by debris.
After which I thought I was going to need a trip the the body shop, however no damage.

I went with ACS Enhanced this time, in Carbon Flash. They are long enough to protect the front of the skirts, which took a lot of wear on my 2016. (edit: Man, these side skirts get dusty fast!!!)

PS: On my Stingray, after looking at the many options, I went with ACS Zero1. Really liked them! I am happy enough with the GS 3/4 to stick with them for now, but I do like the Zero1s a lot.
