    Coupe sideskirt fitting (hatch)

    Hey guys when fitting coupe skirts how do you fix the end cap on from underneath? I noticed the hole where the clip goes through doesn't line up with the hole on the car

    if you're happy using it on a pair of skirts you've paid good money for.. then go for it. Personally I wouldn't, for the sake of a £3.99 tube of sikaflex I'd rather have peace of mind they won't come off at 70mph..
