so the heat gun does play a major part? I mean, its obvious that the heat would help form and mimic the shape of the chuki bumper, though it was not stated in the original posting. I honestly thought the notches and cuts wouldve been enough, but no, those darn corners are hard to bend (i did use a hair dryer), hahaha. so out of frustration, i cut the lip into 3 peices (long peice in the middle, and corners screwed to the bumper extensions) a tried to join them all together with and it was a total fail! hahahahaha.

so basically, after ive made the proper notches and cuts, i'd have to align & mount the middle portion of the lip, then heat the sides and bend as im mounting the corners?

would you happen to have a picture of where you made the cuts?

Do you think that these side skirts would work on a coupe?

Coupe and hatch use the same skirts. No difference.

Before someone tries to correct me on the difference between 180SX and Silvia and Canadian skirts let's just say the body in that area is the same Coupe, Hatch & Vert. So yes they will work. My brother has them on his coupe.

Sorry about late reply guys but '95-'99 should work. Just has to make sure it doesn't have the step rails.

Holy crap! Awesome stuff! I just happen to own a 4th generation accord.. Lol.. If the 90-91 accord lip fits well.. You can also use the 92-93(but is thinner in size). A lot of 4th gen(cb7) guys install legend lips and 94-95 accord lips(both which I have) 95accord lips will have to be cut shortened

Ill probably go ahead and install the 90-91 lip but will test fit the legend lip and see how that looks

as long as we're piling in all the random different OEM-things-modded-to-fit-S13s options available out there, i guess i'll add this too:

headup240 using 94-97 Accord (5th gen, CD chassis) side skirts, trimmed and paint matched. i've seen this car in person, the skirts look great. very subtle. you don't even realize they're there at first.

this should be added too:

kouki s14 side skirts fitted to an s13. they fit very much like the Legacy/Outback skirts in the original post. i don't remember the guy's username, but he's on here somewhere.







and the skirts photoshopped (by user Chris28) to match the car color:

this is a great thread, thank OP

I always liked subtle oem aero and love how s13 mudflaps flow with the stock body


I'm surprised nobody fit them in the front of the rear wheels (like on 350z) as they are very flexible and with little heat and 3M tape you can mount them anywhere.



Like on some 350z, so simple and no need for sideskirts

plus they are like $26 brand new at Nissan


never tried 300zx splash guards, they might fit easily to

The flares on my car earlier in this thread (these) are s13-specific PJ Bonifacio flares.

The flares on my car now (these) are S30 "ZG" flares. I'm using a full set of wide rear flares all around.

Don't bother trying. Just get a pig lip. It's flexible, it fits perfectly, it looks awesome...

Not worth the time/effort to rig up an Accord lip to fit when you could just grab a pig lip from Craigslist or a junkyard.

yea right now, with no lip on my pignose and the car is basically lowered all the way ish.. with 225/45/18 with alignment.. all good so no funky camber.. its sitting about 7" in the front.. I feel that's way to high haha. Im just not Shure how much lower that pig lip/ explorer side skirts would make it vs just ordering a kit..
