side skirt removal

How do I remove my factory side skirts on my 2000 Honda Civic EX? I want to paint them off the car or maybe just remove them. Any help would be appreciated.

I believe that you take out the two screws in the front wheel well and than slide (not as easy as it sounds, the fit is really tight) it forward. It's on a whole bunch of white clips, so you have to slide the whole sideskirt toward the front of the car to free it from those clips. Good luck
Don't forget the tree little fasters under-neath, front, middle, rear. They're such a bitch to take off, I endend up prying them off with a screw driver and putting regular screws back in. After that just slide them forward, when you put them back on pull the little white clips out of the car first, turn and pull, and snap them back on to the running board, then just snap the running board back on the car.
Oh, damn...I forgot all about those things. Yeah, those aren't fun to get out, especially if your car is lowered. I recommend jacking the side up to give easier access to those things.
hey where do you get those side skirts on that civic. I been looking for those jdm style side skirts and i couldnt find them on the net. I have a 97 civic 2 dr.
