If you have TONS of patience and a steady hand, drill and screw it on yourself. If you lack either of those things, take it to a body shop. thumbsup

hey, i had problems with the sideskirts because i was unable to close the doors. had to trim the tops so the sideskirts were flush under the opening where the door sill is.

do your sideskirts fit alright? just wondering...
