Then you drilled all the holes, correct, and not use one of those other 2 customer methods listed? My only concern with that is it could lead to sources of future rust, or is the rocker panel composite? On second thought, I'm sure it is.

I will never drill holes when tape will work. The common myth is tape is weak, INSTALLED RIGHT, nothing could be further from the truth. A full length piece if 3M very high bond trim tape will hold for years , and if not taken off the right way, will damage the parts if you try to pry it off. Rather than having just 3 screw points that can loosen, rust and gather dirt, tape seals the joint as well as holds it.
Choose the right procedure for the job.....my skirt is full length tape.
It's why I wrote this
The trick with tape is the surfaces have to be absolutely 100 % clean and the protective pull off not pulled until you are going to join the surfaces, pull slowly as you stick- dawn dish wash the underside of the car, then alcohol scrub the surface again, alcohol wash the skirt, join screws at both end then start sticking and work down the side pulling the red tape....
Buy what I linked....you have to give up your preconceived notions and stay on top of what works with what job, or else your mods will suffer....same with detailing....
Hey Glen,one complete long strip is enuf to hang off of if you want...if the connection is good...
you have to remember with a skirt you are not asking for the tape to hold up the weight of the skirt - 5 screws that are already there in the front and two in the back hold it there. You are just asking the tape to control the "SAG: in the middle - a weight much smaller than the whole skirt...
HOWEVER, there is one disadvantage to tape, screws are gonna allow the skirt to come off easier if it's damaged.....or needs a repaint.
5 years ago we hung a 40lb ship to shore SSB radio on the inner roof of a 57 Viking flybridge....it is still there today....
