Or you could just super glue the sides to the tape.

Yeah get them molded, that will look the best. If you dont want to go that far, use super glue or some type of contact glue.

Im guessin he wont do that for free, its not easy to get it to look good. With the springs, that depends on whether or not your cousin bought the right set of springs for his car. Whats year is your cousins? yours?

Uh, congrats it says on their website that they have a coilover out for us,. it also says on the AEM website that the EMS is out for us and it isn't. So, noob, yes you may be right, but don't be going around calling people a "stupid face." You need to learn your place in the food chain. =)

Side Skirts

Well back to the original question. I had a 91 Integra with side skirts. The nicest way I found was to pop rivet them to the car. This looks great and is easy to fill with body puddy.

kool-aid is an unknown quantity at this point
If you want your side skirts molded permantly or are having problems with an area pulling back the two sided tape away from the body because of stress, then I would recommend Duramix 4040 or Duramix structural adhesive. It is a two part urethane applied with a special gun and mixed through special tips. It is very strong and it sets up in minutes and will not pull away.

molding can get expensive... urethane glue is the best.
