Is this a sport? And can i ask where did you buy yours? And is there anything that you removed from your car or you just attached those side skirts directly? And btw, It looks good!

Looks like it's an LX. Doesn't have the Sport's 18s, I don't see a center mount exhaust, no right side mirror camera.

True. Didn't realize that until you told me. Considering i have a sport hatch as well. Anyways thanks for your reply. Maybe ill just stick with wrapping with carbon fibre.

Side skirts will mount but there is space at the front fender where the Type R has the fender vent, the rear where the R has fender flares, and the underside mount is a little different. The underside mount can be modified easily, rear fender flares might be able to be added to accommodate there, but the front will be the issue. I have been told that the front fenders do not mount the same between the two cars.

Sorry Black lightning I completely missed your question. I'm sure you've got it by now though

Is it possible to reattach just the black faux carbon side skirt/lip onto the fk7 sport hatchback?

It's been so long since I looked at it I honestly don't remember. I have some new parts coming in so I'm back on that project.
