Side Skirt question

I'm doin research into side skirts for my 03 GT. I want it to mach the stock front and rear in terms of how low to the ground, but I also want something that looks nice/is easy to install. Any suggestions/pics?

I would say your best bet would be wings west/TRD. I dont think there are any that would match perfectly, but those are probably the highest up as far as ground clearance goes.

i saw a celica with only the TRD side skirts on, and they were lower than the front and rear.

just paint the stock skirts the same color as the car, it would make it flow nicely thumbsup

The only problem with painting the stock skirts, and for that matter getting a body kit at all is that I have a zephyr blue metallic celica, its a rare color, it was hard enough to find the car itself, the paint to match is going to be damn near impossible.

...then how would you get side skirts painted? If the paint is hard to find...just get a body shop to order it...it would probably cost $50 to paint stock side skirts.

I have Vizage sides...i'd say they are maybe 1-1.5 inches lower than stock...not too much...

Body shop supply places can mix paint of your specific code and put it in spray cans. That's what I have done for painting my interior and my side skirts.
