I'd rather have it engraved and painted but I'll find out more next week.

Since they are relatively cheap if I get bored with the yellow I can' get another set made up if this works out, once I know what I'm doing. :lol:

Fitted them LOL

Not sure if I'll keep the original rear ones or not, plus I noticed there are only 2 screws, the new rear ones require 3.

Been considering getting some genuine front ones to go with the custom ones, upside is the screws you get, just not sure if there will be enough.

Okay ordered the new flaps, should get them next week.

Now just need to work out what bolts I need to put them on and if I need to make a bracket on the inside edge. Did this many years ago on the coupe.

Can anyone help with the bolt size needed?

Also why can't this thread be moved to the correct place on the forum?

Just picked these up :)

They cost $77 to be made, but I'm not sure if they will be any good. The 6mm HDPE plastic is a lot harder than I hoped.

I'm now thinking of getting some of this... I know it's turning out more expensive but at least I'll have some good templates to cut them out with.

I just think the 6mm thick plastic might break if hit or worse still damage the fender or rear bumper.

Yes I know thinner could make them too flexible but the eBay listing are for plastic squares that are made for rally cars and I want a bit more flex so they have some give and don't break the mounting points.

Decided to get the eBay ones for the reasons above, finally got them on the car today.

I'll add more photos later this week, they might need some work but at least I won't loose my car in the car park LOL
