ZL1 side skirts

I see the threads for the ZL1 front, rear, and spoiler...Has anyone installed the sideskirts yet? I'm anxious to see how they look and how involved the install is.

I did. You simply take the original side rockers and bolt the zl1 rockers right up. Check my profile and you will see some pictures

The install should be identical to the one for the GM ground effects side skirts. About 15 threads down in this section you will find a thread with the instructions in PDF format. Looks simple, but I hear that removing the ones on the car can be a pain because the clips that hold them on do not want to let go.

do you think they do in fact help against rock chips? It's tough to tell how far they stick out towards the front.

Thanks guys, keepem coming. I'm still on the fence about these. They do look good, and the price isn't bad at all.

All ZL1 parts are on hold. We're assuming they'll be back for purchase soon

I found his info and sent an email. But he site doesn't list them. So I think he's out of stock as well until the hold is released.

ZL1 skirts and the SLP front lip would look awesome.

They will just pop on, I have not done the ZL1 side skirts yet but they are the same set-up as the stock rockers. Two screws on the front and two screws on the back. I think the hardest part is taking the stock rockers off.

you'll need a trim removal tool. the stock rockers are a bit of a pain to get off but be patient. the new rockers go on very easy.

With the tool you have to be careful because the metal behind it is weak and will bend very easy. Like twentytwelvebee said be patient.
