AndrewJ's thread starts out on the first page with some good photos of attaching his wheelskirts. it does involve drilling into the body, though; so if you're mainly interested in testing/experimenting, tape works really well. just keep in mind that at speed it will flex inward toward your wheels a bit, so plan accordingly.

a little gas on a rag will take it right off and not hurt the paint..
