I think this looks great and really completes the car! I've been thinking of doing it. To those that have, how is is holding up?

What does everyone else think? Anyone have an pictures on Sebring silver?

If the body shop didnt do a good job, it may peel later on, especially around the tips.

I think it looks pretty smooth. If my car wasnt black I would consider doing it.

Wow looks really nice! I didn't think it'll look this good until I saw this pic. Nice one!

I think I'll have that done when I get my front bumper repainted. Seems to clean it up a lot in the back

Ok, I'm getting this done in about 2 weeks....

Now, I just saw this...



What rear lip is that? I'm getting my STOCK rear black valance painted to match my car, and always wondered if there was a "SUBTLE" wrap around lip to match my Honda oem front lip. Would this look good on a stock 2002 with front oem lip/rear oem wing.

Please give me some more info and advice on that rear lip?

Those are C-west sides and the middle is the center clack piece color matched. If you don't plan on taking the sides off then you migh want to flush it in unless you leave it, but then it makes the car look more agressive with all those lines.

How much do those side go for? I see what you mean, as they look a little tacked on. You can flush them in?

So you think it would look ok on a stock 2002 with oem front/rear lips? It's either that, or just painted stock one and adding nothing else.

That blue car is mine. They are C-West Rear Aprons and they are molded or 'flushed in'. I love the look of it.
Here's another view of it.
