Sounds daft but use no more nails.

Or if you never want them to come off use tigerseal.

Also i would suggest putting some self tapping screws in either end of the sideskirts to hold them in place while the glue bonds. also its an extra measure should the glue fail.

Use rivits and a bit of builders expanding foam.
Dry fit the sills and drill a few holes for rivits, fill the sills with the foam (remember it expands 30 times), quickly put a few rivets in and let it expand.
The few revits will hold it while the foam expands and the foam, when hard will hold it secure and act like a glue.

Wouldnt putting rivets in wreck the smotth look of a bodykit. plus putting them in might destroy the fibreglass and crack it bits might fall off.
