Yes, the screws WILL show - but just paint the heads with touch-up paint and no one will ever notice.

Once you drill the side in... it should fit just fine... drilling is basically to keep the sideskirts into place.

side skirts to NOT "just pop on" - side skirts requires two people for installtion... one to hold it into place and the other to drill at the locations.

your professional bodyshop should know the procedure - if not, I sugest you find a bodyshop who knows what they are doing (or atleast one who has done this type of work before)

Bodykit Rear Bumpers

When installing any complete aftermarket rear bumper replacement, you will need to remove all pices that were currently attached to your factory stock rear bumper... this includes the foam core, the plastic clips and both of the inside plastic fender walls.

Any bodyshop who has history at installing body kits should know this from previous installations (same aplies for Honda, Mitsubishi, WRX...etc)

As with MOST body kit pieces, this should be installed by a professional - but I've posted these photos for anyone who is curious as to how/where the actual install points are located - these photos should answer most of your questions thumbsup
