I bought a sideskirt package and will probably install it this Spring. I was contemplating molding the fiberglass in so that there are no seams like my front end.

Vette now...

I like how clean it looks with the skirts molded in, but as I do not know how much C3's flex, I would be scared of cracks appearing after a while if the bodies do flex excessively. Or, having to replace them if damage occurs, I imagine that it would be a pain in the pooper to fix. That's right, I said pain. But, if we all worried about what might happen, we would never leave our houses. Nice pictures btw.

I don't like skirts on C3's. They are just fine without any. But it's your car, have fun...

I think it will balance out the front end also, mold it in, looks better.

I agree that it will balance out the front. My vote is to mold in!

Don't laugh. There is an AWD Vette floating around that I'm sure a few of you have seen that is a mixture between a Typhoon and a 79 Vette. Apparently it ran 9.18 in the quarter.
