English term or phrase: side skirt plug
Hola:

Busco a alguien con experiencia en traducción de automoción. Estoy traduciendo un capítulo para una serie sobre "tuning" de coches y en uno de los procesos de modificación en los que van a fabricar un nuevo faldón lateral hablan de que van a hacer también un "plug" para este faldón lateral. No estoy familirarizada con el montaje de un faldón lateral por eso mismo no sé si refiere a una especie de resorte o pieza para encajar el faldón en su sitio.

Contexto:

So the next step for the Lexus is gonna be the side skirt. I gotta go ahead and make a plug for it.

Gracias.

Ana
