Default Question about 2017 Z06 side skirts and XPEL

Just bought a 2017 Z06 and I am getting Xpel on it next week. The Xpel web site lists three different rocker panel kits for a 2017 Z06 and I want to make sure they are ordering the right piece for the rocker panel. The options are as follows:

1) Rocker panel with side skirts
2) Rocker panel without side skirts
3) Rocker panel with side rocker extensions

This is my first Corvette so excuse my ignorance. I either have option #1 or option #3 I believe. I called Xpel customer service, but the individual seemed unsure what was the correct option. Thanks for your help. I am attaching pics.

The 2017 has a different skirt we call it the 3/4 skirt. I don't think was listed. The other years with skirts are full length to the rear wheel well.
My 2015 I first put on full length skirts but I actually like the 2017 skirt look so I added them to my 2015. They seem to do the job as well!
I think number one and you would trim the expel to length

I think you are right, its just hard to tell from the drawings they have on their web site. Were side rocker extensions an option for 2017? Is that one of the Aero kits?

Are you doing it yourself if not installer should order it for you. I have the 3/4 skirts on my 2017 Z06 and they are covered with Xpel.

Iirc. All the side pieces what we refer to as side skirts are listed in gm catalogue as "rocker extensions" mayne it's 3/4 and full? The installer will know. And if not just call Xpel

I called Xpel twice and could not get a definitive answer. Installer thinks its option 1 but isn't sure. I guess I will find out. Just didn't want to have to make this a two step process if I get the wrong pre-cut piece.
