Just a quick one. Has anyone got any photos of their fibreglass copy bodykits and photos of how they mainly attached their side skirts etc, where they screwed it in etc?

I just bought one and wonder where people screwed it in. Not overly keen on just drilling it into the sills? :?

just the wheel arches probably isnt enough force to hold them on tight. I was told screwed in underneath but not keen on that.

Might see if i can find some strong clamps for the sills or just use sikaflex, least it would be slightly possible to remove it.

the rear skirt you have to screw through the old bumper but thats not a problem as their cheap, you wont see it and their replaceable.

Screws at the wheel arches (2 on either end I believe...so 8 screws in total for both sides front and back).

Then use sikaflex along the bottom as you said. To hold it in place, you can just use gaffa tape or something (assuming you are getting a new spray paint job) and tap it on tightly. Don't think you can get any campls in that area to hold it in :?.

Rear bar...measure twice, drill a couple of times and then it'll fit...well that's what I found. Good to have a spare rear bar :D

phong =P~
