Side skirt Facts
Side skirts can be bought from
Simpson***8217;s salvage in York
Mrk 1 side skirts are rounder to match the body styling of the mrk1
Mrk 2 side skirts are more square and fit the shape of the mg better.
You are looking at around £100 pounds for the side skirts the end caps are about £40 pounds and the clips about £12.You don***8217;t really need the clips to fit them you can use self tapers but if you want them
Part no DDQ000050 : CLIP-SILL FINISHER (maby mrk1 part number)
For the Mk1:
RH brackets are DDJ000380
LH brackets are DDJ000390
For the Mk2:
RH is DQM000160
LH is DQM000170
Come in packets of ten, price about £12. you need 5 or 6 for each side
a body shop will charge you around £100 for spraying and fitting
5 door side skirts fit a 3 door the size of the chase is the same
The skirts usually have three screws in each end when bought new. These fix the bracket to the skirt.
If yours are 2nd hand and did not have these, you will need 12 self tapers.
The bracket attaches to the inside of the wheel arch with screws which are already on the car holding the plastic wheel arch liner in place.
