Hi again

A small update from my todo list. This time it is the frp side skirts. As always I took to few pictures, but I'll try to explain how I installed them.

I bought these frp side skirts back in 2009

Then I finally got around to install them.

Used a jack to see what it would look like

That looks great, so on to painting them.

As always when painting stuff. Clean the parts very well.
I drilled the holes I would be using before painting. I only ended up using the top most four holes.

I ordered a set of rubber trim via eBay. I think they were from Canada. A bit expensive with taxes and everything, but they work and look good. They are not original Toyota. The original profile is a bit different.

I mounted the rubber trim with the included glue. Let it set before doing anything else.

The end result. A pair of painted side skirts with the rubber trim on. Perfect.

I didn't manage to take any pictures during the installation process, but here is how I did it.

- First. Get a buddy to help you!
- Hold up the side skirt, push it as much forward as possible
- Use selftapping screws in the top four holes. Don't tighten them yet.
- I actually removed the screws again to put in some rust protection. Tighten the screws now.
- Remove the wheels
- I used one or two selftapping screws at the back (depending on how warped the frp is).
- Since I have frp front fenders I tried to use two treaded rivits (6mm) and then two bolts to hold the side skirt in place.
- Stand back and watch the results :-)
- A final touch is some black rust protection on all the shiny screws.

I'm really happy with the result and now completely ready for the summer trips.
