Default EK sides on EG (How to)

sup guys alot of people are askin how i did this so here you go hope this helps.

first you have to cut the front of the EK sides about 2inches. (sorry dont have any before or after pictures) just cut it the same length and the EG ones.


then put those white clips onto the EK sides and then see where it lines up with the chassis (mine already has the square holes there cuz i drilled it already) to get the square holes i just drilled a big hole with a drill, then got a square file and just filed it to the right size square.


I didnt do all of them got lazy but if you see two holes on the picture the one on the left is the one i drilled !!!(dont try to make a hole for the first one in the front cuz there is something behind it and i couldnt get my filer in there.)!!!


this picture show the white clips in the holes for the EK ones


it should fit in after all this and the front will flare out a little so push the sides in and just use a selftappin screw to hold it in. also on the bottom the very far rear clip should clip in. if you want all the clips in there you have to drill holes on the EK sides so it will line up with the holes already there and then use those clips that came off of the bottom (those black screw type things)



Your done!!!!



hope this help those of you that wanted to know how i got it on. there must be other ways but this worked for me. some may say its "mickey moused" but it works and looks fine.

from my knowledge...eg sides are straight and flat....ek sides have that lip at the very end that flair outwards a bit...

Looks good. I have seen guys use the mudgards to conceal where the skirts are cut. Looks kinda cool too.

nice! I've always heard about this, but never seen it. Looks great. I like SIINSI's mudflap suggestion.

I'd say step 1 should be to get them painted.

to late..type r side skirts mounted on my ae86..pics are coming soon!

The rims wernt sanded. Jus make sure to clean them real good with good brush with just water.

Then give them one coat of primer , and 2 coats of flat black paint.

I really dont like how it is open at the front of the wheel there. That will trap dirt/gunk and collect water, which could cause rust.
If there was a way to close that off, maybe.

Would it be possible to drill holes on the sideskirts instead of the car? I never really liked drilling holes in my car

I know what you mean but you cant drills holes on the sideskirt for the white clips. I never really liked the idea of drilling holes on the car either but I dont think it would make that much of a difference
