skirts fitted today

Just a quick snap in the rain to show off my side skirts
Notice the steam emanating from the rhs of the car, this quickly changed to plumes of steam turned out to be a split coolant hose p*ssing coolant onto the manifold cover. Good job I was out taking a piccy otherwise I may have drove off with no coolant. Also check out the model with the shopping!
Anyway here's the pic, I'm pleased with it.

Re: skirts fitted today

Wow its looking fantastic. I wanna buy one again!

My Tipo gave me a scare with steam coming from the front of the bonnet. Turned out to be fine mist in the air evaporating off the hot bonnet! PHEW!

Skirts a slightly lighter blue than the rest of your car?

Re: skirts fitted today

No you're right, they are a slighly lighter blue. The bodyshop did use the paint code found on the inside of the bonnet, the funny thing is if you placed the s/skirt next to the bonnet it's a perfect match so my coupe has had a re-spray at some point.
