use mine as a reference. mine had no holes pre drilled so i drilled a hole to fit a socket and then a smaller hole on the mounting side for the bolt. then used double sided tape for the mating edge

Thanks, this is very useful, i basically did the same as the second pic but the first one which is nearer the tyres is not there at the moment. I just have the one bolt in the same location as your second pic and the rest is stuck on everywhere with double sided. It stayed stuck on at very high speeds but i'm still wanting to add an additional bolt there.

I installed the 1-piece replica from EBMotors. The fitment was pretty crap.
Same for me -- the holes on the two ends (near the tires) were impossible to put a nut through, so I just taped it up with 30 lb. 3M tape. Has been holding up so far. I did get two bolts on each side though at the side and towards the center. Then obviously, the other 3 that screw in just like the stock one. 5 total, hopefully that will do the trick.

Even with a lot of tinkering I couldn't get the panel gap fully sorted out, especially on the left side. Any tips on getting those nasty gaps sorted out?
