Any of you guys seen these rock guards?
 
I bought a pair from the dude on Ebay and just got them in. I have to admit, they are friggin' sweet and install was seriously a breeze.

You can 3M tape the tops or use the supplied clips to hold the tops in place. I opted for the clips and they hold well.

Anyway. They are working well and will hopefully keep debris of the quarters!

Here is the page where I bought them!

I have seen these for sale on here by a forum member.

There is another thread on these. Seems everyone likes them. Oneslow is on the site.

The only complaint I have heard so far is the inside edge that no one sees is not 100% laser cut straight. I guess that's what you get making every one by hand. Other than that everyone loves them.

I made similar ones myself but cant figure out how to stop getting rocks caught between the rock guard and fender. Anyone else having this problem?

I have them installed and they are great!

Use 3M double sided tape to seal it against the body. I used both on my car and it took care of the debris getting stuck.

Did you try the 3M tape yet?

Got mine last Friday. Have not installed yet as I am filling any small rock chips in the paint for the mounting area. I rough fitted one of them to see how they would look and I like them. I am going to work on filling more of the small chips tonight and let that dry and then install the guards tomorrow night hopefully. I am excited to get them on to protect the paint. Will add more thoughts once installed.

any pics?

these look a lot nicer than the GM big clunky splashgards...correct?

spen5151 06-10-2013 10:48 AM

I have no pics. Oneslow can send you some im sure. These look much better than the huge GM ones. For the ZL1 they look more like a stock rock guard that is on the front of the front tire wheel wells. That was an important factor when I thought about my purchase, I did not want ones that stick far out or looked non stock. These were the closest I could find for a good price.

Here are some pictures in the ebay posting that you can check out:

Mine took about 2 minutes to clean the inside edges. To save the money from the price of the other ones out there. I would easily spend that amount of time every day. Great bang for the buck. Mine have at least 400 miles and are holding up great with the 3m tape, which I was able to find at Wal-Mart. Never needed to use the clips. :thumb:

3M tape works great

djnice 06-10-2013 12:52 PM

Seems the tape doesn't stick well to the plastic. How do you guys get it to stick? Probably warm temp helps a lot?
