as the title suggests anyone know anything about removing side body skirts on an fg? im guessing it would be somewhat similiar to a ba/bf? (which ive never done before either) will be attempting it on monday, so any ideas, tips or tricks appreciated.

i have the bf but there is only some screws on each end of the skirt, however i think there is some fiddling when it comes to the door sils this is what my panel beater has said. He will prolly be trying to fit my bf gt side skirts to my BF SR, its been bought from the same place and the front bar fitted like a dream so hopefully side skirts are the same

have just stuck my head under the car and there seems to be some of those dammed xmas tree clips holding it on underneath. looking at my genuine ford replacement skirt, there gaps in it that look like more clips go into the side of the body too. from the design the holder for the clip reminds me of door trim clips on a ba, where they slide in and out of the holder. think i might have to go find myself one of those clip remover doobalackies.

a quick update. the skirt replacement takes about 30 minutes a side, and uses a s**t load of clips. 5 xmas tree type clips underneath, 9 ford body clips, and 2 general sort of clip per side. using one of those clip puller whatsits really is the go, saved me so much hassles. only issue i had is that ford want $3.50 per clip, and you need 9 per side. so 18 all up at a cost of $63! although i must say the fpv side skirts really look the goods.
