I'm getting the car painted in the fall, so I figuered I should order side skirts now to get them in time if I am going to do it.

I'm thinking Stillen or Top Secret.
Those two or leave it stock. Can't decide

I'm a stock body with TRD hood and WW lip.

here's 2 pics for reference. One is street wheels the other is drag...




Opinions?

James,

Your car looks damn sweet as is, so I'd be cautious with side skirt choices, especially on a black car. I previously had the Stillens on my car before I went Do-Luck. You can check out a few pics here: http://www.to4r.com/member.php?show=ken.henderson.

Nothing wrong with the TS skirts either, but I have no experience with them. They'll be high quality fiberglass, but will still require some work to get that "sheet metal" look on a black car. The Stillens, being urethane, are more helpful in this regard. The Stillens do look good with the stock rear spoiler as well, IMO.

You can't go wrong leaving her alone, but if you want to make a move, my choice would be the Stillens for the reasons stated. I did have to have a special bracket fabricated to prevent the Stillens from "bending" away from the car up top and appearing to "bend" toward the car near the bottom because of their weight. I sold my Stillens to board member 8Wasabe, and I believe he still has them, if you want more info on the brackets. Good luck.

Ken.

honestly with that lip you don't need sides, in fact i would do away with the sides

and focus on cutting the lip where it wraps up on the bumper. I think that will look cleaner

and not appear as busy in the front

It's great as it is, but I would definitely shave the upper part on both ends of the lip. It looks much cleaner.

I would say if you are not going to do anything with the wing such as a RMM wing then leave it as is. To me a car with side skits and a stock wing just look's a little off.
