I believe the only Mugen sides available are for the sedan. You have to cut the sides to fit them on a coupe....

remove the stocks? on mine i just cut the side skirts to length and cut a hole in the stock for the grill part. the mugen style sides just overlapped the stocks and i screwed them in. if you dont use your stocks for support i think it will be too flimsy.

but thats just how i did them. of course if you cut the stocks like i did for the vent in the mugen style you cant really go back or you'll need new stocks if you ever go back to stock.

They usually include a support bar don't they? That's how mine was installed without it being flimsy.

they only make it for the sedan. but with the design you can just cut it shorter for the coupe. you can get it from you're local shop or just search "98 accord mugen side skirt" on google and im sure you'll find it online.
