    IS Side skirt jig/template

    does anyone know where i can get one? I have a brand new set of IS Side skirts but do not have the jig or template to drill holes in. If someone can direct me to the right person, I would really really appreciate it.

      there isn't a good one available. You pretty much have to make your own from what I remember. I haven't met anyone that has used an oem template for them yet.

        My car luckily came with IS skirts and have the holes pre-drilled. I'm selling the skirts, so maybe I'll make an outline of them for r3v asshat's to use soon

        If drilling ain't your thing, you can use the factory clips at the bottom, which hold pretty well, and thin double sided tape for the top.

          I want to drill. It's more sturdy that way. I would appreciate it if you could make a template for me. Thanks in advance.

            I have some too and haven't installed yet. I was going to quintuple check my dimensions before drilling anything.

            Of course, a template would greatly assist me in my efforts. Thanks!!!

              The pressure. I can feel it.

              I'll see what I can do when I have access to my car.

                      I also have the side skirts. I just used double sided tape and three screws on the bottom. zero issues and they wont ever go any place.
                      also for sale. :)

                        Bernz,

                        Alternatively what you can do is secure the clips that are to clip against the rocker onto the skirts. Dab the POINTED TIPS of the clips with some paint and try to pre-fit/mount them on the rockers. It should leave a mark on which spots to drill. Thats how Ryan G did my skirts.

                        Be careful when drilling, behind the rockers are some electrical wiring that you don't want your drill bit to go through

                          And wen u eff up. Fill with jb weld and redrill. Make sure that before you install plastic grommets that go into those holes (which in turn the clips' heads snap into), you coat the neck with some sort of sealant to prevent rust around the cavity area it's going to be inserted into

                            ^ very import, seal it very well to prevent rust. Maybe a good idea to repaint everything that will be cover to also help prevent rust if you don't plan on taking them back off
