As the title says.

My main bodyshop guy doesn't have much experience with fiberglass...

I currently have a set of Eurostyle's fiberglass E36 twisties

My experience with side skirts have been kicking my ass.

My first attempt at installing side skirts involved a urethane set from DDM. The skirts were crap- after drilling multiple holes into the rocker, I find the skirts were an inch too long, the jack holes didn't line up, and the mount clips were so shit, they broke within a few days leaving a large gap between the body and the skirt. http://www.maxbimmer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=105753

I got fed up, ate the cost of the skirts and got Eurostyle ones.
They are perfect fit. My first attempt installing them involved double sided tape. They worked for few weeks and then showed signs of comming off as the curvature of the body made for a small contact area with the tape.

I reinstalled the skirts again using exterior construction grade glue. It lasted for a while (1.5 years), and last night one side fell off going through snow.

I've had enough. I want to get this done right. I don't need anything hardcore like moulding the skirts into the body, I don't need paint etc- I just need someone to put these on professionally and to a point where it fits right and I don't need to worry about them comming off again. If anyone can recommend me a shop that will do this, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!
