Side skirts.. FINALLY!

I finally got RS side skirts for my car... It took me forever cos I never have money, but I was able to find them on PCPonline for pretty cheap. When I first brought them home, they fit pretty good.. or at least I thought. I dropped it off for paint, and when I tried putting them on it was like they were too short for the length of my car. How could they possibly have shrunk?! Well, anyways, I drilled it, double-sided taped it, and sawed it as best I could..

Na... I'd say paint your sideskirt black if anything. Keep the front lip as is.

If you paint your front lip then your wheels will stick out like a sore thumb.

they are less flexable after painting...eventually they will carck.

But don't worry, I have a thread on how to fix cracks.

Leave your car the way it is, it looks so goddam sexy.
Painted skirts and lip body colour.
cf front lip. even if it wasnt cf and was just flat black, i'd leave it.

Ahem, my cousin just painted one for a WRX 2 weeks ago. He been working autobody and paint for eons...looked pretty sweet too when he was done.

I would not paint the Lip, skirts or tail black, it will take away from the look of
the car and also make it look like its raised...
