I wouldnt recommend it cuz what would happen if u ****ed up ur sides or something? u will have to repaint the fenders and rear quarter panel or lets say if you get tired of how they look and you wanna change em?

do it yourself... they shouldn't be that bad. It'll be fun too.
and btw, good call on not molding.

i had to redo my G5 because the upper part won't stay down. the trick is to make sure the top of the skirt is exactly aligned at the body line and the lip just under the door goes right under the door. this is not the best explanation but if you need, let me know and i'll show you pictures with more details. make sure you use the best tape and not anything cheap. use 3M automotive tape and nothing less. also it is important that you clean the surfaces very well before you apply tape.

3M makes adhesive promoter that enhances the stickiness of the molding tape.Clean the surface, put on the tape, and then spray that adhesive promoter on the opposite surface... it's glorious.
