mud guards: a little hassle.
I don't know that anybody's interested, but for what it's worth, here's my mudguard experience.
I live in Canada, so I had to pay duty & GST to get my mud guards imported. With the shipping & difference in currency & etc. it amounted to about $200.00. At fifty bucks a flap, they better stop a lot of mud!
Installation was a little difficult, but not insurmountable. A couple of holes need to be drilled in the body to install the back units, and the clearance between where the hole has to go and the back tire is about three inches. The instructions that come with make no indication of the very small space available; perhaps the intended audience is a dealership mechanic for whom removing a wheel is easy. For me, it was easier to cut a drill bit in half and use the angle attachment on my Dremmel tool to make the holes. Took a while to figure that out.
So there's a little learning curve. I think I took an hour-and-a-half to do the left side, then the right was over in ten minutes 'cause I knew what to do.
I like 'em. They keep the dirt off the sides and complete the natty look of my square little beauty.
