    Cool, thanks for the info on the side blades. I don't have access to all of these tools so I wouldn't be able to build these. But they look awesome, great job on them!

    Sorry to be so slow to respond to your questions about my side blades. I traded the Z in on a 2011 Corvette Grand Sport in October so I haven't been spending much time on this site.

    I don't have a DIY on their construction. This is the type of project for someone who has access to a power saw, random orbital sander (helpful but not required), a belt sander, a router (helpful but not required, used to reduce the thickness on the hidden underside, but not the edges! of the blades) and a drill. You will need some basic shop skills too and the time (6-8 hours) and some sort of work space. Total cost was about $100.00. The picture in my album shows the finished skirts during the painting process. The exterior edge was established by scribing the profile of the rocker panel onto the material (5/8-3/4" Trex type planking, a waterproof 50% wood, 50% plastic composite often used as home siding which I purchased at Lowe's home center) and the width of the blade was based upon my opinion of what I thought looked best. The inside profile was determined by the need to provide a broad and secure mounting base while avoiding jacking points and other structures. The blades are mirror images of each other. All surfaces are primed and lightly hand sanded. I installed the Trex smooth side up and applied black paint on the bottom and black Plastidip on the top (to match the black Plastidip in the grill and back lower valance. Let me know if you have other questions.
