    Default Gend1/2/5 side curve on Gen3/4?

    Has anyone looked into making a custom Side Skirt that includes the currently triangular shaped side vent just infront of the drivers door and behind the front tires on the Gen3/4 that is rounded to match the rear of the car and be similar to that on the Gen1/2/5 cars?

    I was looking up at my '06 Coupe on the lift in my garage this morning preparing to remove the side skirts for an exhaust upgrade and it appears that the only part that would need to be replaced is the side skirt as it "owns' the shape and one could fab a new side skirt that even flares out a bit behind the front tires to save from rock chips while changing the side profile to match the curve at the rear of the car.

    The GEN II/VI is a sharp edged car, so curves doesn't fit well. I'll do it again and post it you still want to see.
