How do most Body Kits get "put on"

I was wondering how most Body Kits get "put on"

Do they screw in, bolt on, use adhesives??

Somebody said in another post, that one Kit used adhesives to get put on

Yeah, the front and back usually try to emulate OEM hardware, but sometimes not fully to keep it simple. The side skirts are screws and drilling and sometimes sticky double sided tape. It depends on what kind of side skirts you get. The ones that hang off the sides towards the bottom or the ones that cling to the side of the car somewhat.
