i've recently picked up some genuine side skirts and rear two piece skirt which is in the process of paint prep, and i'll be purchasing a front bar off ebay which will be fibreglass as i'm over waiting for a genuine to pop up.
i was wondering how people go about fitting? other than the fact they screw in.
i have some damage on one side skirt where a small section of the mounting holes has broken off so as well as screwing, i want to glue, i've read to use sikflex, but upon inspection, found theres like 10 different types at bunnings, which one do i use? also, unsure of door pods, the screw position baffles me.
i've taken the rear skirting off the bumper it came with as it was damaged, and will be drilling out and fitting with the bolts, but will also reinforce with glue.
also, has anyone self fitted a fibreglass front skirt? how did they go about it?
any pictures would be great.
cheers and sorry for the long post.
