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

I need a manual for my 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder, if someone can find it. Specifically, I need to know what kind of oil to put in it.

you need to use 10w-30 oil. i recomend valvoline durablend ($20 for a 5qt jug at walmart) or valvoline synpower.
i have most if not all of the service manual for the 2g eclipse on HERE is the link.
the 97-99EBC and the 97-99electrical should have just about everything.
the 97-99 year models are almost exactly the same as the 95-96. for the most part all the differences are cosmetic (front/rear bumpers, side skirts, rims, headlights, foglights, a/c switch, radio/cd)

I am wanting to fit a gtr body kit onto my 1990gts nissan skyline but it seems too wide.I have managed the side skirts but the front wont line up. which is the best way to modify the front spoiler to fit...

I am assuming that it is an after market kit, they very rarely line up well without modifying in some way. if it is too wide you may have to remove a small section from the center of the spoiler and re glass it while it is on the car to keep it in the right position good luck

How do you fit side skirts to a ford escort mk6

Usually you use screws to hold it to the body, either fiberglass or urethane side skirts are all attached the same way.

On the front end of the 95 eclipse I just bought there are rods not attached and I need to know which ones on a diagram and how to put them back together?

Compare the right side to the left side of the car. They should be almost identical. If it is not obvious to you just from looking under it, I suggest you pick up a haynes manual from autozone. They sell for around $20-25.

Coil overs

I think you mean 1995 . Anyway there should be a band that came with it it has two hole's in one at one side and one on the other. some times your kit will come with two of these "C" shaped bands because on the eclipse.there are four bolt holes in the coil itself. now it is located in the top of the motor on the 2.0 motor both turbo and non turbo. Its the black ugly thing with four wires sticking out of it . just put the coil cover over this ugly thing and c
screw it down. Good luck man.
