had my 99 996 in for a little paint work and to get the aerokit's side skirts properly flushed up on the sides. When purchased from the p/o it had a small gap, about 3mm, between the skirt and the rocker panel. The shop has a good reputation and seems to do good work. However, they have not been able to flush things up along the entire length. It has gotten better, but its still not the way it should be.

So, is there a trick to flushing up the skirts? They don't appear to be damaged but they certainly aren't fitting like they should from the factory. Ideas, no matter how off the wall, are appreciated. Fortunately, they aren't going to charge me until we can figure out a way to fix the problem.

When the sideskirts are done properly there should be no gap at all. That is, you can not even slide a piece of paper in the place where they meet. The later version of sideskirts Porsche sold had two-sided tape where as the early version was put on with epoxy. I think one of the complaints was that the epoxy version needed to taped and held in place for 24 hours before the car could be driven. The later version of the double sided tape does not seem to to hold as tight as the epoxy - IMHO.

Here is a picture of my factory epoxied sideskirts.
