    HOW TO: Installing IS Side Skirt

    OKay I understand that it could be frustrating to not have the photos on here for you to follow. Not my fault as you can see Photobucket wants me to pay now for their service. But I want to help the community so I made a video of the whole install. Just pause or rewind if it goes too fast to read.

    Thanks for visiting.



    My car before install


    Brand new spanking new




    Figuring out where to fit all clips






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


    If you are interested in the side skirts, let me know.

              i'm not exactly sure, but it could be since I've owned 2 325iS already and none of them had the skirts.

                          I'll post pix em them in diamant schwartz soon.

                          My understanding is that they were only an option on 91' is's.

                          Which style clip is supposed to go on the front of the short pieces?
                          I don't always wreck cars, but when I do I wreck them into trees.

                              Thanks for the write-up.

                              Here's a general idea of what they look like on sterling silver:





                              Not the best pics, but I'm happy with the skirts. Whoever is thinking about the GB for these should definitely get them. 15's are starting to look small though...
