    Iím going to be installing rear quarter panel skins tonight. One thing I can say from mocking them up is use a bit of electrical tape on the edges when you first go to put them against the Jeep to transfer your hole locations. I was kinda heavy handed and may end out with some scratches outside of the final location of the panels.

    Did you use any tape at all? Planning on RTV or silicone anywhere?

    I just used the tape temporarily as I was getting the skin to fit exactly where I want it so I didnít scrape up the Jeep too much. After install, I donít plan to use any silicone. Others who have run them will probably weigh in.

    I made my own from a file drawn from a crude template that I made so I bet Evos will fit much better, haha. I had to make quite a few trips back and forth to the press to get my bends right. Theyíre still not perfect and I anticipate some ratchet strapping...IMG_2256.jpgIMG_2317.jpg

    Pages 4 & 5 on my build thread show me doing mine. Not great but might pick up an idea or 2. I drilled and tapped the frame - one front and one in the back on both sides and then bolted the sliders in place so the mobile guy could weld them on.

    Thanks, kind of an experiment, haha.

    Also, OP it didnít occur to me you probably didnít mean corner skins, my bad...looks like youve got some good thread references. good luck with the install.
