anyone do a Body kit Install??

I'm trying to eliminate some of the cost of having my kit fitted AND painted by my shop. I'm trying to figure out how to get the side skirts off.

I unscrewed but the front and the rear wheel well screws. Then I popped out all the little plastic crews along the bottom. But now heres my problem.

The only thing holding my skirts on right now are these little slider type plastic pieces on the INSIDE of the skirt. I actually have to get under the car and pull the skirt down, then look up into it. There's ALOT of them, like 30 to a side or so. I have no idea how to get these off. Can anyone hepl??

Cool, 2 minds are better than one haha.

Oh, and it's like 0 degrees here so my hands were COLLD when I was doing it. I don't know how hard I was pulling but it looks like they kind of just slip into a notch. I drew a pic if it makes sense to anyone haha. Oh and I dont think spinning them does anything, juct clicks lol.

When you loook at it imagine laying on your back, feet out the side of the car, pulling the skirt down, and looking up into it.

And what do you mean move the skirt sideways, it doesn't move up and own, it's secured too well, left and right it doesnt move at all.

Last time I was under there I was putting my neons on, I think they are all body clips. Either you can buy a body clip remover, use a flathead screwdriver (the hard way), or use a pair of pliers and pull like hell. Good chance you'll have to replace them all.
