Yes, the screw WILL show - but just paint the heads with touch-up paint and no one will ever notice.

Side skirt and rear bumper body kit installation requires drilling. Unless you are familiar with drilling through fiberglass or urethane and in to the car body's metal, I recommend leaving it to a professional. You only get one shot. If you make a mistake, you cannot go back to the dealership and ask for another car, free. You are stuck with that mistake.

A professional installer knows exactly what locations to shave for best fitment, and will also know how much tightening a bolt needs before it might be too much and cause cracking to the fiberglass (or tearing of the urethane)

As with MOST body kit pieces, these should be installed by a professional - but I've posted pictures for anyone who is curious as to how/where the actual install points are located - these photos should be used only as a reference.

Very helpful thanks,
Quick question I saw a thread on here where someone said they slid the skirt over the existing rocker?
Is this true.
Is the the stock rocker panel under your kit?

Yes, the sideskirt goes right on top of your stock panels. No need to remove anything for their installation.
