    Do real men have skirts on their Miatas?

    In the near future my white 1990 is going to need a strip and repaint, because you know. I will also be dealing with a bit of rocker rust because it’s not lived a cloistered life. When that happens I’ve thought about adding some rocker skirts and maybe even a new fromt bumper.

    I’m not seeking an aggressive or highly modified look. Still want to keep the roadster feel, but enhance and freshen a bit.

    What are your thoughts on skirts and some of the ones available? Ideas for other tasteful changes?

    How it looks now.

    The only side skirts I really liked was the factory Eunos side skirts, I’m still debating if they will look good with fender flares on my car though

    'Gender' flares? Which gender are you picking this time around?

    Buy a rust free shell, swap over the good stuff, scrap the rest or sell as is

    Good advice. But, I’m in to making bad and emotionally guided choices right now. It keeps me busy learning how to do new things and gives me the chance to meet new and interesting people.

    No link as it was never offered in the USA

    Got mine from Leni Metro of Metro Motorsports Miata Parts about 12 years ago, I’ll get you some pics. The other ones that look nice are the Mazdaspeed A-Spec Type-II side skirts

    I love my A-spec type 1 side sills closely followed by these (finding them is another matter though):

    Argh. Why is everything in my Miata life a unicorn. I assume they are only found in Japan or the European market. And, that no one does a solid reproduction.

    Hey Randy, wanna find me a set so I can make a mold?
