Default Picked up OEM side skirts & rear spats for my 01 Miata




Got these from a junkyard parting out a 2001 in Alabama.

The best part about them, is that I dont have to paint them, because they're the same color as my 01!

Next up, buying about 30 foot of double sided tape to install these. I wont be drilling into the body panels, but will more than likely drill into the wheel wheels to make it easier to remove them if I decide to do that later on.

I'd recommend getting 3M specific tape if you're going to do a tape-only install (as I did too). You WILL need to drill the 7 holes in the bottom to install the tree clips. If you remove the skirts later, those hole will not be visible and they are 75% of the structural support of the skirts as well.

I would personally go with just the front OEM mudflaps. I like the way the NB has a subtle kick out near the rear wheels that the side skirts cover up.

Yeah I figured something would have to be done for the bottom mounting points.

Thanks for the advice on the tape.
