My RPI Stealth install instructions for my 2014 RS

I recently purchased the RPI Stealth Splash Guards and I must say after completing the install *without any instructions from RPI* i must say they do look good. I was however not at all satisfied with they way they arrived *NO INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS (NOT EVEN ON THEIR WEBSITE), SCRATCHED, AND POORLY EXECUTED HARDWARE). For $50 dollars I would have expected a far better quality product. Here are my install instructions and what I did to make them satisfactory to me. Questions and comments are welcome.

Thats all folks. Hope this is helpful to someone who purchased these and are having install issues. I think all said and done I will likely purchase the ZL1 rear splash guards. I am not sure how long the rears will hold up. I may cut that plastic L bracket and add some 3M tape to help secure the rears.

These were a nightmare to install.

Ditto on trimming the crappy pieces of plastic tubing, and having to cut down the ridiculously long screws.

When installed properly, they do their job pretty well (better than I expected). So at least there's that.

Did you just buy the fronts?

I bought front and rear and the fronts fit great with no modifications and I used my factory screws, the rears however required a zip tie and a hole to be drilled in the wheel well

Both the front and backs - While I agree the fronts fit ok with factory screws I did not like the metal clips they sent so I used 3M body tape instead. For the rears I think I will cut the plastic L bracket and apply 3M tape on both sides and use that to help hold the top in place. I do not want to drill any holes. I might also order the ZL1 rear splash guards. I have read that other forum members have had good things to say about them.

Yup, what a pain in the A$$. Now I know why the others have a ridiculous price tag. You get what you pay for.

Exactly brwk. Though I still feel this item was overpriced. They are worth maybe 20 to 25 bucks in my opinion. Maybe worth 50 if they came with instructions and better hardware. I now know why their website does not show any up close images of their product. I wonder if something changed with this company as many others did not seem to have any complaints.
