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!

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?

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.

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.

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.

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