3M tape... from HomeDepot - but dont use that to install your body kit thumbsdown

but you actualy should look into installing them correctly - by using 3/4" self-taping phillips head screws to attach them to your car (then you wont need to muck up whats under your new skirts, for when you decide to sell your car later in time) wave

Two secure screws...

Notice the descreat screw in thetop-right...

Another descretly installed screw about half way...

And two more screws at the backside...

1) drill in with self-taping screw...
2) putty over the the top
3) then sand smooth
4) either repaint professionaly or use $4.99 pen of touch-up paint from the dealership
