Splash Guards

Trying out some molded splash guards for our Camaros. You can get them in the colors of the cars or just in black. I opted for black since I have the inferno orange with black stripes. I will try and post some pics when I get them installed. Just worried about winter driving with increase in sand on the streets here in Colorado. Not that my Camaro will ever see snow...but they are slow to clear the streets of the sand when it melts and I LOVE to drive this car!

I think the brand was insignia?

I have the Gm splash guards on my Camaro, they do a very good job of keeping things off the side of the car. I lived in Colorado for many years, I would want this on without a doubt, to keep the road salt off, and rocks frm hitting the side.

I installed the GM splash guards, they make a world of difference. I don't think appearance is sacrificed and my body panels are lovin me for it!

How hard are the GM splash guards to install? Interested because I remember all the chips on the side I got with my TC.

They were pretty easy, I took off the rear wheels, there is a star head screw in the wheel well I could not get to, my star driver was too long. I front ones I just turned the wheels to get to them. You will need a star head driver, a drill (the holes you drill are small and under the body, and wheel well). The directions are good that come with them, just follow them and you will have no worry's. If you plan on using a jack get a low profile one, this car sits low. I used a towel on the handle near the body, just to be safe .

Just so you know... or maybe already know... they dont come in all the car colors(not sure why), but I ordered some for my IBM and they do not come in that color.... Im having to have mine painted which sucks because they cost even more for me just because I have IBM! Couple other colors arent available either, not sure off the top of my head what they were, but check before you buy because they may end up costing more

I have the same issue, no IBM. I talked to my dealer last week and he said there is a product number for the IBM splash guards, just aren't available yet, but they are supposed to be available soon. I will hold off, if they aren't available in the next month or two, I will get some painted like you.

Have you looked at leaving them black and installing them, they might not look too bad?

Very easy as Flynnaz noted. I was able to do the rears without taking the wheels off. Just used a 1/4 drive racket with a star bit.

gmpartsdirect has a really good price on them.

I think they look fine, and they do make a MASSIVE difference on how much crap gets shot up the side of the car!

I ordered mine last week and should be here this week. I got down and was cleaning along the lower edge and already feels rough and a few chips. These are a must if you want to keep the sides nice. I am going to wider wheels/tires which will only make the throw-back worse.

No... my car should be here this week or early next and I wanted them right away since we're still in crap weather season...

yea, I really wished I could get them in Summit White, dont really see people talking about it. thought maybe black would be ok but would have to be dull black or paint silver ones white but worried about the paint sticking and not peeling off.
GM where's all of our splash guard options in all colors?

Seeing them in pictures is different than seeing them in person. In person you don't really notice.

I believe it would be more of an eyesore with all the dirt and road grime on the side of the car if you don't have them.

I also believe that the colors not available are the blues, white and green.

I think I did see an image of a guy in Montreal that had CGM splash guards on his summit white Camaro. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=56290

I suggest just getting black splash guards if your color isn't available, it would go well with the color of the tires. With Imperial blue, I doubt you would notice it.
