    Question about side skirts

    I not so long ago bought some Irmscher Side Skirts which where for a 3 door and i have a 5 door but i was reassured they fit fine? well went to put them on today and other than the little rail being not as long for the rubber seal that goes behind the door(s) it seemed ok, but i also noticed at the rear end, there isnt any fixings like the originals where theres sort of end caps that slide onto the skirt? and there seems to be quite a gap too... anyone else put 3 door ones on a 5 door and got some pics at all? or can get some? interested to see if you can get them to fit quite nice or not... also another question, anyone know the part number for the mounting brackets on the side as a few of the barbs broke as i pulled old ones off, Thanks.

    only difference should be the length of the door bit. All astras are the same length from arch to arch
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    Ive had a look about and from the photos I can find of them they seem to be more like the prodrive skirts which are one complete peice with no ends on them. If thats the case the back edge should follow the line of the sill where it meets the rear arch. Match the back up and work forwards from there and they should align properly. This is the original side skirt fitting instructions from irmscher http://www.astraownersclub.com/docum...side-sills.pdf . If you still get stuck get some pictures up of where the problem is and Im sure someone will be able to come up with an idea to help
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it
