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


    NVM, I found this in your how-to thread!

    3/8

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

    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.

    <b>My car before the install


    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 right


    Making a hole for the rivet


    Lined up perfectly the second time around


    My riveter is too small for the BMW rivet


    Temporary fix

    </b>
    When it stops raining, I will take a nice photo of the car.

    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.
