Why don't you just measure the R and the non R skirt to see if there is a difference.

There is no point in measuring them. I stood them on end side by side and they are the same.

As to them being different part #'s:



So I went out to my car and did some test fitment as promised. Here are the results:

Shitty GSR fitment we are all familiar with:


Oh, what the F? Same shitty fitment with ITR !


But wait, it gets better!


So now I know what you're asking yourselves. What the F changed?


I really didn't buy the fitment issue, so I pulled the skirt back off of the clips and removed the clips from the body of the car. All it took was a quarter-turn and they come right out.

Then I pushed the clips into the skirts, making sure they fit all they way in.
Instead of sliding the skirts onto the clips, I mounted the clips, and then pushed them into the body.



Now both sets of skirts fit as I imagine Honda intended.

No prob. Pics hosted @ skafia. (God/Skafia forgive me.)

New pics for the nay-sayers who think I'd bother to "manipulate" the skirts to my own advantage.





Now what we really need ... is for someone with jacked side skirts to take them off and try what I did, and then post up before and after pics.

I stand corrected.
I will defiantly try your way of mounting them this weekend if I have time and post pics.
I wonder why on the ITR's(or most that I have seen) have them mounted "correctly" where as the other models do not?

Now I have a better thread to reference when this topic comes up

I measured two sets of skirts, and they are different in overall length. I have a 1997 Integra RS. Those skirts measured exactly 6 feet. A friend of mine has a 2001 ITR and his measured out to be 6 feet and 1/4 inch. I tried to adjust the clips and no luck. It comes up a 1/4 inch too short. Pictures to prove it.

Hey, maybe I will just take my front fender off so they will fit. Notice how Madness fitted them without a fender... hmmm. Unless our cars are different. Atleast that was what I came up with.

The fenders should have absolutely nothing to do with it. The front edge of the skirt rests against the body anyway. Just for fun, I'll fit mine with the fender on tomorrow and see. You say you tried to adjust the clips. It looks like they are on the skirts, is there any slack in the slots? I found that they would seem to be "snapped" in, but they would actually move over more,

At this point, I just don't see how it couldn't work.
Unless my gsr has unpainted R skirts....

The fender has everything to do with it. The front edge of the skirt rests against the front fender. Try it with the fender on. Put ALL of the clips on the skirt... it will not fit. Yeah I did have all the clips on the skirt, and I did adjust the clips. There was slack in the slots as there should be so they can be removed/installed. I did try your snap in method, no luck... the front hit the fender and the holes didn't line up for the clips. Why don't you just go ahead and take measurements for yourself?

I've noticed that mine are a bit short too (GSR). But, I'll be forever-blacking them this week, so I'll check to see if I installed them improperly.

Alrighty, I got around to removing mine. Before I even touched them, I noticed that my passenger side sat flush with the rear fender, whereas my driver's side did not. A farked up previous install--probably

So this time around I stuck the clips into the sideskirt before forcing the skirt on. The front will initially be too short and won't cover the front fender, but a bit of rubber malleting from the rear of the side skirt will fix that right up.

Now both of them more or less are lined up.

old *** thread alert!!!

Stock 94 Integra side skirts, installed properly by removing clips from car, sliding clips into skirts, then pushing skirts back up under rocker panels (as opposed to trying to slide skirts back onto clips).

Lines up perfectly. NO DIFFERENCE between ITR and non-R other than paint. Every car you see with the side skirts short of the rear fender arch has the skirts installed incorrectly.
