Ribets in ur body kit?
I got my car back today but the thing is that on my body kit he used ribets to help hold it instead of 2 sided tape...what is better? and the ribets are really ugly...any idea how to hide them or something?

Take a picture so we can see it better. And you mean RIVETS ... laughsilly not ribets.

Are you talking about holding the side skirts on ????

you can get them molded to your car and the rivets wouldn't show, but since they're already there, go to either your dealership or a local car store and pickup some touchup paint that is the same as the color on your car, and just paint over them, it will make it look a lot better.

Rivets are awesome check out the Castrol Supra or the TRD flared out supra yummy. Simple molding should work totally agree. But painting they over wouldn't hurt. Just as long the rivets aren't visible it's all good.
