has anyone installed their own bodykit?

im working on mounting up my sideskirts and i dont know wether or not to leave the rubber/metal strip on the sides... what did you guys do? i was thinking of screwing right through the sideskirts and the rubber strip too... it kinda adds stability im thinking...

dont respond if you dont know.
dont respond and say to have a bodyshop do it.

^kinda like you just did????

anyways:rolleyes:

i would suggest leaving them on and using some double sided tape to help hold them in place even better.
use the 3m brand. but yes i would also think it would hold better.

EDIT: see you can do this yanno.:hammer: :lol:

leave the rubber if you are lazy..


other wise you'll have to take it off, fill in the wholes with piece of metal, then sand and bondo if you have to, then primer and paint...

can you do all that..?


i can see you're proficient in engine swaps, but are you good on body work.?

either way, good luck...:thumbup:

I did mine..
I used screws in the wheel wells.. i think about 4 or 6 screws per side. then the rest I used silicone adhesive to mount to the lower black panel.. but i have razzi sides, different from fiberglass sides

I installed my own bodykit on my Gen 3. If I am correct you are talking about the little factory "sideskirt" and not the rubber part on the bottom of the door. Yes I did remove mine. To mount it I put screws through the top of the skirt through the door sill, or whatever it's called. I have the shogun sideskirts though so this might not be an option for you.

I think your right, it'll keep the skirts more secure. My skirts were installed with the rubber still on and I havent had any problems at all. Just make sure everything gets sprayed, including the rubber when the skirts get painted, you dont want it to look a bit silly.

What kit is that Initial T?

Dave- be careful removing that peice.. Think about protection from the elements that it provides.. rust protection..etc.

my kit was gonna be the 329 erebuni lip kit. razzi has a bunch of pics of it on their site and they all kept their rubber protection on the doors.

but the roads here and parking lots wouldn't have permitted it to be a daily driven.
