How deep?

Are we talking "ground effect"?

Is this for a road or track car?

You can't go too deep for a road car without ripping them of on the first speed hump.

The last time I saw a track car with deep side skirts they got torn off try to get the car off the trailer.
I couldn't understand how he's got the car on the trailer without damage, until he admitted that he'd used the trailer as a bench and fitted the skirts with the car already on it :roll:

It's a subjective look, but have you considered the cheap extensions you can get off ebay/wish etc.? When coupled with the polish side skirts they may look quite good - kinda R3-esque, but with a lower grey plastic portion.

I don't know if they'd be of any interest to you, but I have a set of Neodesign/Wangan skirts I was going to list soon in a parts clearout. They are GRP so would need some creative fitting (as usual):

I bought them years ago along with the bumper but decided not to go down the modified route, so they've sat in the box ever since.

Thanks for the offer Phil but I would rather not be cutting and shaping GRP.
