Hey Ross,

You have about half an inch of clearance before hitting the body. Since the tape will hold the side skirt very well, the added screw is for additional security. Just use the self tapping screws that will protrude past the CF extension and the skirt with half an inch left. That will be perfect. Then all you have to do it to put the side skirt back on.

Totally missed that, thanks again K9!

I did this DIY alone but if you have an extra pair of hands available, the install can be much easier and less chance for errors. The skirts are much more appreciated on a light color like K9ís white M Coupe. I went for the most aggressive look on the skirts protruding as much as they possibly could and I gotta say I donít like it as much as if they were a bit more tucked in like K9ís, something to consider when you install your set. Here are a few pictures;

1) ran to Walmart for some screws and washers
2) Placed the car on ramps to have a bit more access
3) cleaned the CF skirts and underneath the body panel with alcohol
4) placed 3M double sided tape throughout the entire skirt except in the rear section as that part there doesnít make contact on the panel
5) sat the panel on the skirt; started from the rear section and made my way to the front. Again, this is the part where you wanna pay attention to your preference of aggressiveness.
6) grabbed a few chairs and sat the panel upside down to drill the screws in
7) popped the panel back in to the car and inserted the OE rivers and screws

Iíll probably redo the install to tuck in the skirts in a few weeks. Reminder: do NOT step on the skirts. I nearly did when I got out of the car as I forgot I had them there

I ended up wrapping them in VViViD PPF that I ordered from Amazon, 8" x 84" Including 3M Squeegee and Black Felt Applicator for $13 each. Worked out ok but wrapping each end was not fun. I ended up taking the skirt off to mount the extension but was only able to do one side as I ran out of double side tape. Here a shot of the side that was done

ZeD4Mr, we really need you to make a matching piece for the rear bumper, looks lonely back there.

Yes, it'll be the next major piece. Design is 80% finished. Then we'll do the 2 piece lip.
