Update: Rockers came 2 days after ordering and look brand new. There is only 1 clip missing which can be replaced.

Easily worth the money.

Mine came in missing 1 gray clip which I replaced with one from the rocker panels that I took off, you can easily take them off yourself but you WILL need and extra set of hands to put them on other than that take your time and will enjoy the results, I know I do.

I'm a little confused, why are these such a big deal? Hasn't this part from the ZL1 (side panels rockers with side skirt already installed) been available for a long time? Also $500 seems like a lot?

I may be getting something confused but I thought the plastic panels were basically the same thing from the SS and ZL1, you just have to use the washers to space it out to fit the wider ZL1 sheet metal?

It seems like to me it would be way cheaper to just try and find the ZL1 side skirts by themselves and install them onto the side panels you already have on your car?

I think I am missing something here?

I donít fully understand youíre question but here goes, Yes I believe youíre confused. Aftermarket vendors offer the side skirt option which goes on top of your SS skirts and mimics a ZL1 look. Thatís much cheaper.

To go full OEM, you need to remove the whole skirt and install the ZL1 piece. They cost about $270 each if I remember correctly UNPAINTED. Then you have to pay for dual color paint I.e. like mine, red and black. By the time youíre done itís close to $900 installing it yourself!!! So that would make this eBay deal... well a deal and a half I would have jumped on.

Ok thanks for clearing that up, looks like people want a complete OEM panel and I didn't know you couldn't just install the ZL1 skirt onto a OEM SS rocker panel.

For those who bought these such as myself and had the ZL1 Addon rock guards for the SS, I had to elongate the center and bottom holes with my Dremel to line up with the fenders, I didn't want to get just the front rock guards for the ZL1 so this worked out just right, I had some of the 1/4 inch 3M black double sided foam tape and ran it on the inside edge of the fender and now I don't have to worry about getting the rocker panels all dinged up.

Contact the seller on ebay and ask for the color you want.

I just got a set from him. Was hoping to find summit white, but got silver instead. Either way, they came in perfect condition.
