Side Skirt Installation Process
Before starting, see if you have a buddy with some extra time. Since C7 Z06 side skirts span your car from front to back, having an extra set of hands will help stabilize the side skirts during installation. Total installation time is usually less than an hour.
- 1/8″ drill bit
- Phillips screwdriver
- 7 mm ratchet
- Safely lift Stingray with hydraulic jack and jack stands
- Remove splash guard end screws (one on front wheel well, one on rear wheel well)
- Position side skirt underneath splash guard
- Line up side skirt from front to back
- Hand-tighten end screws to secure splash guard with side skirts
- Drill remaining mounting holes (there are 13 holes per side skirt)
- Secure remaining bolts into drilled holes; hand-tighten to ensure proper alignment, then install permanently with ratchet and / or screwdriver.
- Take your car for a test drive and check for any noises, shimmies, turbulence, etc.
With your side skirts in place, your Corvette Stingray will enjoy:
- Decreased lift tendencies
- Improved underbody airflow
- Minimal turbulence
- Better handling
- Showroom appeal
