2007 ZX3 - Looking for aftermarket body parts

Hi guys, first post here on FF. I've had my 07 ZX3 for close to four years now, I believe we bought it back in 2012. The car is going on 10 now and I live in Pennsylvania. Rust is a huge deal up here, my dads Ranger is almost 13 now and the bedsides are totally gone. Kind of to the same effect the rocker panels on my car are starting to go. They're not bad yet, only some surface rust on the front and back near the wheels. So far I've been stopping the rust as best I can with Extend rust treatment, but this year we're going to be properly fixing all of the rust before it gets bad.

So fixing the rust isn't my issue, but I would like to get get a mild body kit for the car once it's fixed; both as an aesthetic upgrade and to keep the salt off the steel. I've noticed that my model year has very few options in terms of body kits though, the only complete sets I've seen are from Duraflex but the pictures on their website are terrible at showing off the whole thing. Does anyone have one of these (or another mild body kit) installed? Any other brands of suggestions would be welcome too, I've not been able to find much online.

You could always try to scoop up the SAP package. I love mine , and for the rocker panels, pick up some SVT sideskirts. I'm not a huge fan , but they do seem to flow nicely with the rest of the SAP package if you got that route.

Oh my. That is definitely the nicest looking ground effects I've seen out of all my options, it's a shame it's so expensive since it's OEM. That said I think I'd prefer saving up for that instead of buying a cheap aftermarket kit. I didn't even realize the SAP stuff existed.

Here is my ST with full SAP and SVT side skirts. You could find it used for a reasonable price if you are willing to repaint some parts.

Yeah I've been looking around online now since I know what to look for. These kits look fantastic. Considering the price from Ford, I'd definitely be willing to do some paint work. Thanks for bringing this stuff to my attention.
