    The side skirts on my 97 Cobra are not exactly straight anymore. They are beginning to fall off. Finally was able to get the car on the lift and the area you clip it too is all but gone. The Pinch well. My question is this. Are there any other side skirts out there that attach a different way? Any that use screws or some type of adhesive? That does not require me to use the pinch well? I love the look of the factory side skirts but since they require the pinch well I will either have to go skirt less or buy some aftermarket ones that attach a different way. Anyone?

    Svo skirts, cervini stalker skirts and saleen skirt all attach with adhesive screws or a combination of the 2. The part on the bottom makes it a bit easier when attaching but those 3 use adhesive more

    My car has the svo side skirts. They're used when doing side exit exhaust.

    Man that looks great. I wanted something that still had a stock look to it, But those are really nice. Might have to start looking for SVO side skirts, and I do not need to worry about the pinch weld with those?

    If you try to find an actual set of svo skirts then you may be waiting a while. They attach with 3m tape. Abc exclusive and I think maybe one other company makes these as replicas and they attach with screws and L-brackets.

    Abc and team shinoda sell them but they're 550. Odds of finding them like evilcw311 said are slim to none. And finding them in carbon fiber is even less. So I lucked out with that. Saleen looks pretty stock too

    Yeah I found a few pics of the saleen side skirts and they look pretty good with the cobra bumper and rear bumper.

    The saleen skirts screw down into the door sill, and also screw into the pinch weld.The VHB tape is used on the quarter panel area and on the fender area. With the saleens you should also get the door fillers that just use the VHB tape to attatch
