I never mounted any on,<br>but couldn't you get away with just drilling a couple of holes, and sticking the rest on with liquid nail's or some similar product like that? <p></p><i></i>

Did you get gt skirts? I haven't taken mine off but I think the main mounting points are in the fender wells with screws. You might be able to get away with a silicone adhesive and some well placed screws. Don't know. <p></p><i></i>

Hi <br> On my 91 Sprint Turbo(scrapped), Under the door edge there is a thin steel strip from the front of the door to the rear it sticks out away from the boddy along the top edge and is riveted to the rocker panel along it's length,there are 2 screws ahead of the door and 2 between the door and rear fender,a number of sheet metal screws hold it in place under the rocker panel and up the fenders, there is a lip on the ground effects that slips onto and behind the strip of steel , there is also a tongue and groove soft plastic seal that runs the full length to seal the upper edge to the body,(silicone caulk should work here,) I am painting a set now to install on my 93 swift 3cyl . If you want a pic of the rocker of the 91 sprint or what I do to the 93 Swift to attach it ,I can get you one , Ian Have fun !! <p></p><i></i>
