Default DIY Front air dam and Side Skirts

Not the greatest pics guys... its really humid here, and it makes the pics foggy. But here are some pics of my air dam and side skirts all together.

Pretty good alternative to a body kit, if you just want something simple. My front air dam is metal with a rubber squigee, so if it ever scrapes, it wont tear it up, and the side skirts are metal. Both have like a powdercoated "nickel" finish. I also put undercoating on the pinch welds behind the skirts so they wouldnt rust.

Let me know what you think.

I understand the front one, and it looks real nice. The sides look nice too, but what purpose do they serve? I have never seen skirts like that before. Forgive my ignorance

Yea lol, The leaves drop everywhere. I just leave the leaf blower up on the roof, because I have to clear the gutters out every few days.

PTmodrod, they are basically just to cover up the pinch welds and plastic lip up front, and make them look a little better cosmetically.

I thought they were a pretty easy mod, and something that makes it noticeable from a distance you know. They could easily be painted, but I wanted to keep them the way they are for a race feel. Thats also why i left the front air dam with squared off edges.

Back in my younger days I had an 84 Chevy Caprice that I made ground effects for. I took vinyl rain gutter cut it in half length wise and riveted it to the bottoms of the fender and covered the pinch weld with it. Painted black it looked A LOT better than it sounds and inexpensive. Some where I have a picture of it... if I could just wade through all the other junk.

There are actually better photos in the general PT Turbo discussions thread if you want to check them out.
