widebody lower skirt variations

been looking at sec widebody pics why are some of the side skirts flush with the rear lower quarter plastic moulding whilst on others the moulding sits recessed an inch or two from the skirt
is it the way it has been fitted or the kit itself.

Gen I and Gen II styles vary, Gen II style is wider at both ends. Unfortunately the Gen I style is not being reproduced, unless you make your own copy from an original, I might even modify my Gen II into a Gen I.

Just when I thought I was out...they pull me back in

The skirts on a Widebody Gen 2 are widebody specific and get deeper at front and rear and also angle out away from the car. Lowe cladding needs some fab work to get them sitting right and in the correct place. Most widebodys vary in a lot of different areas - just comes down to fitment and how the it has been fitted up.
