Re: Fitting Side Skirts

use stuff called sikaflex (available from member "body stylist")and 2 screws at either end to secure them on. while waiting on the stuff to set, it's probably best to mask them to the car just incase they slip or something.

Re: Fitting Side Skirts

OK, you'll need to remove all the white plastic spikes from both skirts.

They just slide out.

Then you'll need to place them against the vehicle and you've got two choices.

Bond them or screw them.

I've screwed mine on cause you're gonna need some serious patience and a decent dry area to bond them properly.

Just make sure you treat any holes with anti-rust liquid to stop it from looking a mess 2 years later....

I had to drill a hole in each wing (as per on the Sporting) and then there were about 6 screws which screw into the underside (no drilling in my case).

bond doesn't take that long to set. about 2 hours to play it safe imo.
mine are bonded and screwed on
