Help!!! cup side skirt fitting advice.

Hi all,
realy need some advice as to how the cup side skirts fit on to the car.

I bought a gtv a couple of months ago that had the cup spoiler and front spitter, also the car came with the cup side skirts, anyhow I've got it in the garage to have the skirts fitted and they have said that the skirts don't seem to fit right in the sence that there is a gap at the top edge and there seems to be no way of fitting them.

Anyone had to fit or remove a skirt got any advice or photos, any advice welcome.

Original cup skirts are made by Zender, and bond over the top of the original skirts. They are made from plastic, not fiberglass- are you sure yours are genuine? Perhaps there is a reason why the previous owner did not fit them.

The skirts have holes for screws along the bottom. I found that the trick was to NOT to use any of the holes directly under the doors, but to only screw them in at the front and back. This should ensure a flush fit along the entire length of the skirt.

BTW, no need to take it to a garage - it's a DIY job.
