Thanks. If I get brand new skirts, it would cost around $1000 and then I would have to paint them and the only place to get them seems to be Z1. Replica skirts cost about $300 plus paint. I could buy replicas and paint them, but if I then find used oem skirts and paint them, I may as well have bought them from z1 because my overall cost would be the same.

I think the rear skirt may look a little bit heavy on my car because I don't have the big 19 inch rims that come on the original nismo. I'm very pleased by using the very lightweight track edition rims and making them appear like the original nismo rims in color and with the decal.

I decided to order side oem Nismo side skirts from Courtesy Nissan in Texas. It will take about 12 days to arrive. They cost $721 and paint will be about $200. Pricey but it means Ill have a complete OEM Nismo body kit on a convertible.

Im going to try and swap the big automatic shift knob for the smaller nicer gtr (r35) shift knob. Anyone know if this can be done?
