Best thing to do is get a nail gun!
Match the skirts to the car and then fix to the car with the nail gun,

this is what the professionals use and its definately the easiest way

The compressed air nail guns are the best as the nails go straight through sill

Sikkaflex on the back of the skirt, then mate up, then drill and use pop rivets to fix the skirts

nail gun pmsl never heard of that one !!
rivet gun would be best rob id imagine your gona need a few to hold them in solid, so drill small pilot hole to areas your gona attatch them to car the rivet through obviously with how rivets work there going to grip it nice and tight, put sikoflex on behind though first and that will strenghten even more once it sets, but youve got the added security of the rivets;
