    Default Side skirts

    I'm looking into getting the side / rear skirts colour coded, how easy do the side skirts come off?

    As Andy said, a pretty simple job. You just need to prise off the rubber seal strip above the skirts. Then you'll see a number of those plastic rivet/plug things, you just need to push the centre pin through to let you pull out the plug. There are also some (three I think) on the end caps in the rear wheel arch. Don't think there are any on the front arch but I can't recall. You'll need to buy new plugs as the centre pins will now be somewhere inside the bodywork. Don't worry about them rattling around or anything - they get stuck to the wax inside and won't cause any bother.

    Thanks for the help Duncan, they came off easier than I thought. Dropped off at bodyshop today, suprising how much road noise there is with them off.

    No problemo Ian, glad they came off okay. The extra road noise will be due to the rubber seals being off and more of a gap to let noise in.

    Picked up skirts & mudguards today after being colour coded, have allready fitted them tonight. No problems for them to get paint onto mudguards, someone had that problem on here previously?
    Looks good will try & get photos when car washed over weekend.
