    Best way to hold on my side skirts?

    Im thinking of taking my side skirts off for when I take my car down for its MOT / Service, so they can jack it up easier. They pop off OK, just 4 screws and some seal thats coming away from the original skirt.

    However, when I put them back on, what should I use to seal them on? Or is there anything I can do to hold them on, but make them easier to take off in the future?

    For some reason I was thinking strong velcro, along with the screws, but that will just wash off...


    Any ideas?

    You shouldn't need to take the skirts off, there should be jack points on the skirts themselves if standard

    As above you shouldnt nead to take them off. If you want a good sealant then Tiger Seal is exellent.
