Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse
I bought a body kit for my eclipse and i need to know how to put the side skirts on, Like what is the best way to install them on the car or the cheapest way?????
Honestly your best bet would to be installing the side skirts with pop-rivets. Get a manual pop riveter. You can purcjase this at any local hardware store, also you will need to purchase some pop rivets. Ask a sales associate what sise you will need, by telling them what you are riveting they should be able to help you find the right size and length.Start by marking exactly where your side skirts will be on the car. Make sure to align the skirts perfectly in mock up so you wont run into any issues with the door rubbing against the newly installed part. mark your holes for where you want to put the rivets placing one every 9 inches to a foot apart. You may also use fewer or more rivets it all depends on how secure you feel with your work. Next after all your holes have been marked drill holes in the spots that you have marked, this will allow you to lign your side skirt back up and mark the frame. Once the frame is marked you will need to drill the marked holes out. Be sure that the drill bit you use does not exceed the size of the stud on your rivet. This will cause the shield to seat wrong and make it that much easier to putt out of the frame. Finally after all your holes are drilled install your rivets and break off the studs. You should be good to go. Word of advice if your car is allready paintes and your side skirts arent, but you are planning to paint them after installation, DONT! drinn your holes in the kis sand any rough edges down and paint it will save you time and hassle in the long run trust me! hopes this helped
