Tii sideskirts install tips and help

My Tii sideskirts from Dan the man should be arriving today. Does anyone know how to install these things? I am looking to do this myself and want to know what to expect. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Are there any instructions out there on how to remove and install sideskirts on our cars?

Thanks in advance!

Yeah but he had someone else do it for him. I'm looking for more first-hand experience. I can't imagine it being too difficult.

Isure did. Mine just showed up as well. I'm sure I can figure out what is involved with the install once I open the box. Update to follow shortly.

I did watch another person as they changed mine out. If I had any idea it was going to be so easy I might have gone it myself.

Just remove the skirt insert (the //M that you bought from Dan:wink
Underneath it is a row of plastic pop in/outs and underneath the skirt are a row of plastic screws...remove those. Then slide the skirt from front to back slightly and it drops down and off the car.

Reverse the procedure and you are through and standing there

Takes about 30 minutes.
