its the trim pieces you use inside an office or a room on the floor bottoms, my bro made one for the front of his 89 probe gt. looks good on the mx6 didnt think anyone had done it on this one.

Some time ago I worked at Proplastix , they make window frame parts . I ran so many parts that could have been used for this , I never even thought about it back then. I could have got about all I wanted free ...sadly they left the area for the most part , I think their screen facility is still here.

They are plastic but I wouldnt call them siding. They are trim for around screen porches and such.

update. I used caulking to seal the gap between the side skirts and the car. it cracks off. i switched to using a black silicone caulking. the silicone stays flexible, but isnt paintable. i painted it but it will soon crack off. black is ok with me tho. 6 months later. still happy with this lip!

Update. It is better to use some kind of glue to attach the L brackets to the lip. The 3m tape works but the lip isn't as strong. Can come off from impacts.

I used PL premium construction adhesive and it fixed my problem. I would use that instead of 3m tape. Probably easier to work with also.

As my 3m tape fails, I am slowly replacing it with glue. :)


It has been 2 years and I still love this lip kit :) only cost around $50 all done.

Thanks man. I'm probably going to swap the front lip for an integra type r lip. But that's personal preference
