Default GC8 Side skirt applications

I have a 1995 Impreza L coupe that I would like to get an OEM side skirt for but used RS side skirts are hard to find for me. I know I will probably have to drill so I guess anything could fit but...would anyone know if side skirts from other models and years could line up, look original, and that is more obtainable at a local junk yard? Any help would be great. Thanks!

Jaxx, i love your car man. just too cool for school.

oh and sorry, about your side skirt situation. since you have an impreza L coupe, go to ebay or autozone or something and get the stock side skirts for a 2.5RS coupe. should fit right up with just some minor drilling if that.

Awhile back I remember it being discussed that WRX side skirts will fit just won't work with factory mounting points. But if you have an L like me then there aren't any exhisting factory mounting points so it won't matter.

snowrat has used wrx skirts on his 98 L. they required minor trimming, but were decent looking afterwards. rs's will be teh way to go tho.

Thanks guys for the info. love the sense of community...
anyways Kheff46: what kind of minor trimming did the wrx skirts need? to make them shorter? or trimming where cannot be seen?
I was just seeing if i could get one from the junkyard like mention before and the RS are impossible to find so looking to see if a legacy or forrester or wrx..will line up. anyone tried those? Try to go OEM. don't want poor quality stuff.

he trimmed a little length wise. i dont know if he trimmed from the back, or front, but you could PM him and ask. i think he's around from now till easter. it didnt look perfect, but it wasnt meant for the L. his wasnt painted either. good luck! -keith
