hi all,

I am currently chasing an EF/EL skirt kit to fit to my EL XR8. (PS if anyone knows of one for sale in N9 Navy blue let me know!)

how are these fitted? do people just use sizaflex or self tappers as well?

If they are genuine Ford rubber kits, then the front and rear skirts have bolts built into them. So you will need to drill holes into the bumpers to match the bolt threads. Side skirts I think have a front and rear bolt/screw which are done up in the wheel arches and the rest is sikaflex (not sure because my side skirts are fibreglass). Then you have the passenger door moulds which has one screw that goes through the inside of the door skin into the mould...so another hole to drill. With some sikaflex to keep it tightly on...

I have a EF kit sitting here, however I am unsure if I still want to put it on. Depends on how much it will cost me to get my car fixed first and see if i can do it all at once.

If your rear skirt is a genuin and your bar is standard or hasnt had a kit on it, doesnt have holes for the bolts so then just do wat i am and sikaflex it :) Side skirt has clips under the skirt to clip it on aswell as screws in the wheel archs, front just has screws on the bumper inside of the arch :) And as said above door spat thing has 1 screw which you take trim off and screw into door and rest is sikaflex, Dont know how the fiber glass kits work and how they stay on. Hope this helps.
