As far as I know, the door spats just stick on with some sort of contact adhesive/silastic, while the skirts clip on and screw

Depends on how good you want them to look, you can use paintable sika around the edges of them so there are no gaps but that would be respray pretty much. And as andrew said they use a adhesive (black stuff??haha) to put them on.

You could do it yourself but the black stuff that a mate used on his car was really tar like and hard to handle.

bah hope this helps, ive been on the turps all night

Getting one prson to hold them while you put some screws in the wheel arch.
and before that smearing a bit of sikaflex on the back.

for the door spats, just drill two holes in the rear door, smear sickaflex, get someone to hold while you screw on.
