    thanks Dean

    There's a Vauxhall replacement skirt for the Signum, in two versions, one with just a cutout on the left and one with cutouts on both sides, as replacements for the hidden tailpipe version. It comes in a dimpled-effect dark grey plastic, so I sanded the dimples off and colour coded it.
