Re: should i remove my side skirts?

Re: should i remove my side skirts?

it's a different look... might as well give it a try for awhile and see if you like it. Not like taking off side stripes, where it'll cost you $100 to put 'em back on.

I've always liked those better without the odd shaped side skirts.

Re: should i remove my side skirts?

You are going to have to do a lot of work where the side skirt was. That area has not seen sunlight' it has had water trapped and dirt underneath it, so be prepared to have to break out the buffing compound!!!

Corey, theres not really anywhere that the stock skirts overlap anything is there? If there is, its most likely under the car where you wouldnt see it anyway :dunno:

Re: should i remove my side skirts?

Possibly. I would check with someone who has done it before I went into ripping and tearing

a friend of mine took the side skirts off his 96 gt a few weeks ago and there were holes where the clips went so u will most likely have to use some type of filler

I've seen it without them, and it doesn't look right.

Re: should i remove my side skirts?

i like the smooth lines rather than that goofy looking side skirt, its not nearly as bad as some of the body kits out there but I like the look of the bullit mustang or the 03/04 cobras over the style they have used from 94-04 on the v6 and gt models.

You need to go to "Edit Your Profile" on the top left of the page, go to the signature area, and enter all your information there. To add a picture, it has to be hosted somewhere (or I believe you can upload it through the site) and then you have to use this type of code:

Code:
[img]http://SitePictureIsHosted.com[./img]
Remove the period in the "[/img]" and you should be set.
