instaaagraaAaaA@aA@AAa@aammmmmmmmz b/c i finally graduated from flip phones.



i need a new lip... that accord lip has seen better days. buuuuuuuuuut i'm too damn cheap and too damn lazy to cut/drill another one, so whatever.

imo, it's good enough to look decent sideways, which is all i really give a shit about anyhow.

i'm probably gonna get some rear s13 mudflaps, cut/remove the "flap" part, and just paint the "valence" to give the skirts something to flow into. again, this is all on the dirty cheap. i'm not about to spring for nice shit when i can patiently wait for free mudflaps

Bumping with my recent find. $30 at the local yard.



Though one needed some bodywork. Just a mock up before trimming, currently primered and waiting on paint.

Only thing I'm having trouble understanding is how exactly it's attached at the front. I know you attached them along the pinch welds, but how would that make it sit flush along the body at the front?

I was thinking the same thing, when I tried to attach them to my rockers it would pull the skirt away from the body up top. I just threw a couple screws in it since its just something to hold me over until I get type x or chuki sides



Btw,mine were from a 99 legacy gt, which has skirts that are a little less aggresive

ahhh yes, i had this issue too, as my fenders don't mount even with my doors, causing the skirt to not mount flush with the fender at the front edge.

i figured out a clever way around it. i need to take a picture of it, but the gist is get a couple plastic self-adhesive wall hangers, paint them black, and stick one on the inside of each skirt. use a ziptie between the hanger and the factory mudflap mounting hole a few inches away to pull in that skirt flush with the fender.

it works awesome. you can't even tell it's there unless you REALLY look for it... at which point you would find a million other things wrong with my car anyhow, soooo IDGAF

wherever i felt like drilling holes. for a few, i reused the original lip mounting holes to serve as ziptie holes. there is no right answer here; just center the lip and drill holes where the lip needs to be pulled/curved into place.

i made some rear "valences" the other day... aka carefully trimmed some factory mudflaps and painted them to match the body color. they really help fill in that naked rear wheel well area.

trimmed the flap with an air-powered cutoff wheel and smoothed/rounded the edges with a file. masked off the flap edge and sprayed the actual "valence" part. let dry, remove masking, and install. pretty easy stuff.


before and after trim:


trimmed, cleaned, masked and sprayed:


installed:

yes, v-cuts, exactly. i had the bumper off, laying upside down in my bedroom. centered the lip and drilled holes thru the lip/bumper and attached with zip ties. then went down each side and v-cut it where it need to curve in more or straighten out more, drilling holes here and there for more attachment points. i think i have 9 or 11 zip ties across.

Why not leave the flaps on there and paint the valence part?

^ i'm not quite understanding your question. that sounds like what i did...?

i painted the "valence" part because it lines up with the wheel well. the actual "flap" part rests on the inside edge of the wheel well, so if you painted any part of the flap it wouldn't flow correctly. there would've been a hunk of red in the wheel well, not lining up with anything. valence is body color, flap stays black.

i didn't leave the flaps because they look dumb IMO, so i trimmed them down really thin.
