Hello -

Last Monday I finally finished the passenger side skirt. It took longer because I had to carefully match up (eyeball) the attachment holes to match the driver side skirt. I am happy with the results :

Passenger and Driver Side :

To solve the size/gap problem, I just added black spongy insulation tape :

Here is the splash-guard front air deflector. I will replace this with a better picture later :

Driver Side Front View with splash gaurd and Rear View :


Problem: I have noticed that the plastic is flappy on the bottom where I cut it in half. While I haven't seen it hit, I see little dents in my center lug-nut plate. I don't mind this, but I think this could cause "negative aero" if it starts vibrating at speed X. I should do a film to find out if it is flapping but I am too lazy right now. I know I can solve this with rigid metal strip.
