    Thread: attaching side skirts?

    1. 04-17-2002 09:46 PM #1
      has anyone had any success attaching side skirts without the proper clips?

      can someone post a picture of the clips & the plastic stripe that runs along the top of the skirts?

      here ya go..

      you can probably just use screws or rivits and it'll hold up good. If you don't want the clips I think you should still get the strip.. it'll make the top of the skirt fit tight to the body. I hate the clips.. its hell to push in, and it'll break the tabs on the skirt if you yank it off later. Sometimes I think the tabs are not in the clips, because the skirt doesn't look straight

      i'm not sure what i'm looking at? can you explain abit?

      is the red the strip?

      vw says the strip is around $50 canadian - for each side & the clips run around $7 each.

      should i look for a used strip or would it be unusable?

      anyone have a pic of the strip & clips on the car (before installing the skirts)?
