Default Side skirt attachment and where to order NB2 bumper cover

Hey guys. I'm bloody terrible at body work. My side skirts seem to be sagging slightly (can see the old 'tape' since they've ridden downwards) and I was wondering if someone knew the best way to reattach them so they look OEM again. Also, I want to move to the NB2 front bumper (I have NB2 lights) but I don't know where I'd order the damn thing. All of the used sources don't have them in stock, so I'd be buying new. Also anyone know what the exact part numbers are for the exterior paneling clips? IE. bumper trim, mudflaps, etc.

I don't know about the clip part numbers, but oddly enough Home Depot and Lowes sell various automotive clips/retainers in the fastener section. You may be able to find something there.

As for the skirts. You can take them off and reattach them if you'd like. You will need to get a roll of 3M double sided automotive grade trim tape. The sagging is being caused by a missing retainer screw that attaches inside the rear wheel well (if you look where the skirt wraps around into the wheel well, you'll see a hole that is supposed to have a scre in it...this screw is held in place by a metal clip that attaches to the lip of the body).

Here are some good picture to understand how to remove/reinstall your skirts. The clip in the rear wheel well is shown in there too...,4863.0.html
