the sideskirts are body color underneath, but I would wait until it gets warmer.

Sideskirts underneath the gray coating are tho color of the car. I'd also clear-coat them before waxing. I'm definitely gonna do mine when it warms up.

could the CSC harm your body paint?....doesnt it make more sense to remove the sideskirts from the car, go thru the removal process then put them back on?....i owuld assume so, but none of the DIY sites do that//..anyone have b4 and after pics?.....would i look like a fool when i'm driving aroud with a black front and back and grey side skirts for these winter months?

only cars 96+ have removeable sideskirts. And yes, the CSC can harm the paint if you leave it on too long. That is why you want to wash it off once the grey is gone.

Putting new sideskirts on older models intails going over the factorys ones. I believe they actually use the jack hole to attch and some screws. I'm gonna do the DIY with lacquer thinner as soon as we finish our new house with the heated garage.
