Like most aftermarket fiberglass parts, the side skirts are probably pretty crude right out of the box . And, they will likely require a good deal of prep work and tweaking in order to obtain a good fit and paintable surface . Moreover, because of the cheap price, I'm inclined to think that the overall quality and design is questionable . That's you call. Good luck .

Send me a pm indicating what your looking for, and I'll dig into my magic bag . Over the years I've come across virtually every aero part there is for the 986 . I'm sure that I can find something for you .
