FOR ANYONE W/ WINGS WEST SIDE SKIRTS HELP PLEASE!

I finally got my car finish w/ my new kit installed, lookz better than my old kit and i'm finally happy thumbsup, but theres one problem i'm gonna have to take it back on monday cry. My door keeps rubbing on the side skirts! It doesn't rub a lot, juss a little, but little by little the side skirts paint is getting scratch and eventually will chip, as a little of it already did cry. Lucky for me i have a lifetime warranty on the paint and i'm cool w/ the owner. I have a feeling that its because the wings west kit was really thick. My question is has this happen to any one before w/ the wings west side skirts and does ne one have a pic of the wings west skirt on w/ there door open (i wanna see how its installed inside). I'm pretty sure mine is installed right and maybe juss needs a little sanding to thin it out, when i take it back monday, but i juss wanna make sure. So please help!!!

yeah i looked today, my door hits the skirt when it comes out of alignment, but if its tucked close to the door there should be no problem, make sure its fit properly in the front wheel well and it shouldnt touch

my sideskirts sat too thick in the doorsil area. had to have the skirts cut to be able to close the door without the door banging it when shutting. if it wasn't trimmed painting afterwards would have gotten ruined.
