I used some 3M commercial dbl sided tape to put on two skid plates and the stuff is very tough, should be no problem holding on light CF side sills if you're nervous about screws. At the most one or two screws in combo with the tape.

For the people that dont want to drill 10 holes you can probably get away with only drilling 3 holes. One in the front one in the middle and one in the rear and can also put down double sided tape and your good to go!

Holy crap.

Any DIYs on how to remove the factory side sills, so I can install the side skirts properly??? If I'm going to remove the side sills, I'll most likely order the proper washers/bolts etc. from Lambo....

I think 5 screws on the under side of the car. You will need to remove your wheels and wheel wells and then remove the plastic hump in bettween the doors, Be very care full because that could break. Hope this helps

Ok so side skirts are all done. The correct way to install these are. One you need a lift. So much easier. You will have to remove all 4 of your tires to remove the wheel wells. One's you have done that then you can start to unscrew all the screws that need to be removed to take off the rocker panel off. I installed the side skirts to were I think looks the best for me. Then ahead we went with drilling holes in the rocker panels. Nothing crazy. Put the screws in, attached the washers from the inside and then bolted them down with some nuts and all done. Hope this helps : ) IMS baby
Any one looking for any parts let me know.

Mine appear to be attached by 7 screws. Couldn't see real well but did it by feel. They look like Allen or torx heads.

Great job John! Way too much work for me for side skirts! If I were in FL, I have IMS do it!

How long did it take IMS to do this? I'm sure the second one took less time than the first one.
