    EVO rear corner skins install

    So I did a lot of searching and never really came up with exactly how to install these skins I heard they were really difficult and I'm just going to share my experience for someone that might be interested the install is actually really easy. I chose not to prefit my skins and drop them off at the powder coat shop since this is my wife's daily driver. I ended up having great luck with these.

    Just wondering, are you going to use anything to seal the top of the skin so that water doesn't go in between the skin and the body? Digging the white powder coat btw

    Thanks for posting this up. I'll be installing these soon myself and was also thinking of just getting them powder coated prior to test fitting. Looks good.

    That's what I was thinking.

    Did you have any powdercoat come off while drilling?

    Second part, just finished installing the corner.

    This literally took me right at an hour to do the entire corner. now I just have to attach the gas cap wiring the lights and I'm done.
    Hope this helps.

    Yes I am going to seal around the sides and across the top but I'm going to wait until I install my tire carrier in the next week or so because I'm going to pull the skin back off to fold the pinch seem inside.

    No, not really. I took my time. I touched up around the inside on the holes with a touch-up brush. Before installing.
