    Coupe skirts on Hatch?

    What needs to be changed, if anything, to make a set of Coupe skirts fit on a 3 door hatch? thanks

    they fit, the only small problem is on the rear arch, the upper section that goes over the rear quarters arch comes out a bit to far and need to be filled out, goeff (ffeog) is best to ask about this as hes done it already

    As above, they do fit on the original mountings - except for the front cap which needs bonding to the underside of the floor pan.

    The back arch bit can be left as is, but IMO it looks crap with the gap and really needs filling out to make it look stock. The nasty lime green area shows the approx size of the gap



    It's simple enough to do with a bit of old sill and superglue and some carefull shaping/test fitting/sanding etc
