    as I just said, after drilling the holes, you should coat the grommet that is to be inserted into them with some sort of sealant, blocker, or primer.

      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
      Wow, that's a great idea. I'm surprised I didn't think of that. lol. That's what I would do with sheet rock and door locks.

      I already was thinking of sealing it with a bead of silicone sealant so water can't get through. Although, after drilling I could spray it with a little primer as well to protect the metal parts.

      Thanks a bunch for the tip. I'm gonna try to work on it tonight. Will post photos.

      Have a great weekend guys and dolls!

        I did pretty much what stephen said. Only drilled one hole and held up the rest of the skirt with the clips and double sided tape. Hasn't even budged.

          subscribed. I would like a template or visual guide for this as well. I'm not entirely sure I know where all the hardware goes.
          I don't always wreck cars, but when I do I wreck them into trees.

              I did it.

              Parts you need:

              51 71 1 947 059 Cover left (fender)
              51 71 1 947 060 Cover right

              51 71 1 947 063 Cover left (body)
              51 71 1 947 064 Cover right

              51 71 1 933 719 Clamping bolt
              NOTE: You have to remove the bolt at the bottom of the fender and replace it with a similar but longer screw bolt instead of using this.
              Trust me it will work better.

              51 71 1 927 439 Plug (You need 2)
              51 71 1 938 940 Clamping (You need 10)
              51 71 1 932 996 Grommets (you need 12)
              51 11 1 942 789 Rivet (you need 4)
              51 71 1 959 929 Clamps (You need 12)

              The whole thing will cost you about $200 including gas money to go to the dealership and lunch.

              Thank you to www.bmwconcordparts.com for all the parts.

              Brand spanking new, straight from the dealership




              Figuring out where to fit all the clips






              Test fitting the whole thing.
              NOTE: Make sure you the both pieces TOGETHER.


              Otherwise, you will get this gap


              Marking the tip of the clips so it transfers to the body.




              Drilled out a hole with a 3/8 step drill


              Inserted the grommet


              Tap tap tap


              Tadah!


              Installed the bottom clips

              Lined up perfectly the second time around

              When it stops raining, I will take a nice photo of the car.

                            I used the actual side skirt as the template. I used the marker to dot where I should drill a hole.
