Body kit installation can relatively be an easy process; any one with a little mechanical knowledge should be able to install parts in a few hours. Some side skirt installation might require the wheels off, so be prepared with a lift or jack stands.
Another aspect of installation to point out is the factory rocker panel or rocker moldings. Some install will require removal or these panels and some will require the panels to be installed. This is very important since some vehicles might not come with these panels and will require it to be purchased from the dealer. So consult with your distributor for the requirements needed for installation.
1. Mock up the side skirt to see if it's going to install properly. If the factory rocker panel is interfering with the installation, you are going to have to remove it. If the side skirt looks like a little short at the edges (where it wraps around the wheel well), you might be able to shave a little bit off the corner of the side skirt for a proper fit.
2. Install the side skirt using screws on each end right where it wraps around the wheel well. This is the part where you might need to lift the car and take the wheels off.
3. There are also a few other places to secure the side skirt, and this will depend on each individual style and application. Some might require screw on the factory rocker panels, the actually door jamb or anywhere else that is not visible when you have the doors closed. Some side skirts will have concave indentations for using rivets and filled after with body filler.
4. After completing installation check door clearances.
Custom installation is better left to professionals.
