Annnnnnnnnnnd the side skirts kind of just installed themselves LOL






































I just purchased some 3m double sided VHB and threw two lines on each skirt, IPA'd cleaned the car (and the skirt before the tape) and then popped 'em on.

Hopefully they stick forever. If not... I mean, $99 for knockoff skirts shipped from CA lol

A $99 "knock-off" aero kit is a bargain for one man, a very expensive fix for another when they peel off and decide to thwack the car behind..

So a few folks have said "hey, tape is great" and a few have said "hey! you need screws!"

So I'm meeting them all in the middle. I'm going to put a rivnut into the fender and one into the rear rocker and then I'm going to bolt/washer the front and rear of the skirts so they don't go anywhere.

I'm curious - do the skirts do *anything* in terms of car performance or is it just the look?
