installing veilside side skirts
Need some help. I am due to get my veilside ff gt kit from veilside monday and need to know how to install the side skirts. Not sure on weather or not to keep the original skirts on or not. If i do need to take them off then do i use original clips to fasten the under portion of the skirt? Already know about the screws that need to be drilled on the ends. thanks for the help

the new skirts go over the stock ones... seems like you know the rest.

You can also think about using a double sided 3M foam adhesive tape. It re-enforces the connection between the car and the skirt.


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

you can leave the stock skirts on or off...i'm not sure if mine were taken off...

the side skirts have predrilled holes on each end for you to use...

and I suggest 3m tape for the portion that runs along the door frame, otherwise they could drill there like they did mine frown
