|Florek12||I have a question.. I live in Minnesota so my rockers are completely rusted out.. I have seen zx3's and svt's with black plastic factory side skirts (rocker panel cover) and I was wondering if anyone knows if they would fit on a 01 sedan.. I know it's not the correct way to fix it but the car doesn't have much time left to be honest and I was hoping to make it look a little nicer for the time being.. I don't know if zx3 and svts rocker are the same length as the sedans or if the rockers are even the same shape or style.. if anyone knows that would be very helpful.. thanks|

|brandon.l.martin.79||Does anyone have a picture of their car with the panels removed? I would like to take mine off to prevent them from holding moisture/dirt/salt/gravel etc in the winter months. I would rather paint the rockers a couple times throughout the life of my car than have those ugly plastic shields there.|

Here are a few pictures with the holes note this is the cleaned-up rocker if you thing this looks rough you should have seen it before with all the rust. I also decide to paint the plastic same as the rockers due to the shape on the back of the rocker. As I said this is a red-neck functional repair. If I keep it till next spring I may paint the complete rocker in flat black paint. Hope I can post pictures here goes.

Hi everyone I just joined I also bought a 2002 Wagon to use as a service car in my area. I hope my 1st post helps a few with a cheap fix
I bought a 2002 wagon with rusty rocker panels one side has 1-hole and the other side has 2 holes bottom line it looks bad. The rest of the car is solid.
This is my redneck fix I went to home depot and I bought 2 plastic trim pieces, they would have been perfect if they were 4-inches wide these were only 3-inches. I have to prep the rust rockers and paint them silver (this is the colour of the car. Next I will cut the plastic trim to size paint them semi-black and mount them covering the holes.
I will post pictures when finished before and after Total cost $30.
I like using the rust paint Rust-Tolium covers nice and it's easy to paint over.

|ShamrockSVT||You could try to get svt side skirts used or off a wreck for a price, but they need to be shaved down to clear the back doors on 4 door models|

Just an update, I haven't received a response from nthcoast so I guess that means they don't want to deal with me. I also haven't found anything local as far as aftermarket pieces.
In the mean time I called a few surrounding area junk yards and 2 of them had Foci's with the factory installed pieces. Depending on the shape I may get a set, they said in the range of $50 - $75 for both sides and the front fender pieces. A big difference from $458 new.

^^ I would just look around for a set of skirts you like.
And yes the skirts will fit any ZX3 or Sedan. The only difference you will see is in the rear bumper. Good luck and keep updated want to see what becomes of it.

Is that the case with just the Roush ones or is that true for all zx3 skirts?
I also notice nthcoast doesn't have an option to ship to Canada, I'm contacting them to confirm this though.
I think the major problem will be getting them to me, the shipping will probably end up being just as much or even more as the actual item because of the boarder.
This is a long shot, but would anyone know of any Canadian located companies that offer sideskirts/body kits for the Focus?
