Well - as a lot of you may know, there is a tendency after few years that the skirts on the veloce have a tendency to peel away.
I've just bought a JTD SW, and it's skirts were moderately coming off.
After doing research on this site, I'd seen a number of recommendations - often involving removing the skirts all together, cleaning the surfaces - putting tape on and refixing them. Others involved using a mastic, but then you need to press the skirt to the body of the car while it sets - one chap had leant bricks all along the side overnight.
I'm reluctant to do this as the car is parked on the street ---- in Brixton
SO I decided that it didn't warrant taking the skirts of. I thought that I would use clear silicon to fix the areas where they were pulling away.
I solved this by getting a piece of thick plastic ( about 4mm ), and cutting 4 inch lengths about 1 inch wide. I then heated them up in the oven until they got floppy. I took them one at a time still hot - and put them over the sill - with about an inch sticking out of the door, which I pushed tight to the upper bit of the sill.
When in a few minutes it cooled, I had effectively created a clamp that I could lock into position by closing the door. These would force the bowing areas of the sill back in to the car body.
I then cleaned out the inner faces were the bowing was, and squeezed the silicon in. Then I pushed the areas to the car body, and carefully cleaned off the excess silicon. YOU MUST CLEAN IT UP AT THIS STAGE AS IT IS A BUGGER TO DO LATER.
Then I taped the clamps I'd made earlier into position - closed the door on the so they pressed the sill tight. Then leave overnight - and bingo.
Hopefully the pictures will add clarity to my description!
