DIY AE86 Side Skirt Install - Removable with "Nutserts"

Postby EvoSolley » Wed Apr 19, 2017 4:14 am

If anyone here has been following my build log, my latest post was about installing Retro-Spec oem replica side skirts for the AE86. I figured it might be a good resource here in the "DIY, do it yourself projects and tricks" section of the forum as well. The goal for this install, was to make the side skirts completely removable, as well as installing them in such a way to minimize the chance of rust in the future. I accomplished this by using these things called "nutserts/rivnuts/rivet nuts" This same technique can be applied to mounting fender flares, wings, body panels, and interior bits that need removable mounting. Here is the video below:

Very nice, I enjoy your videos a lot! Side skirts are the last body pieces I need to put on my car and your video came just in time. Never thought of using rivnuts. Good stuff man, keep it up!

Another great DIY video. I used same tool in the past for installing FC3S mirrors. Right tool make DIY jobe EASIER & SAFER!
I also like all the DETAILS that you are performing such as painting and using sealer on the holes.
I am looking forward to see the next video...subscribed. (yes, the red button is showing on the screen.... :P )

PS: I was also surprised to see the fitment of replica skirts. My old OEM replica skirts did not fit that well that I ended up getting the OEM.
