Sorry that my Camaro is not a cyber gray, but visualize it as it was with the mud-flaps.

Please! Do not go with mud flaps. But if you do, go CLASSIC. Get the ones with Yosemite Sam saying "back off". Just kidding. Personally, I prefer clean lines. No flaps or flares. Just my oppinion.

I really like the splash guards, and found them not too noticable on my RJT. I truely believe they will be less noticable on CGM.

I've said this before, but will say it again. My neighbor when he saw them actually complimented me on them. He mentioned before I got the car, that real muscle cars never had them.

It would be great if you could see them in person. I've noticed that Rally Yellow and Inferno orange really draw your eye to them (at least in pictures). It also depends on the angle you are at too.

Sorry about that "OUR72GTO", I was just trying to kid around a bit. Tell me, for that, do I need to ask for your blessing, or permission?

yes mud flaps would be really ugly.

I like the splash guards for now and maybe in the future I might think about gfx.

Thanks for the pics. Can't wait to see your pics Easy Go. I'm probably going to order the Quarter flares, they look pretty good. GFX are to expensive and only held on with 3m tape. Not to mention all the sand that they hold against the rocker panels

Finished the install yesterday - not difficult to do at all with some basic tools. I didn't have to use a lift or ramps or take the wheels off, though I had to use a mini-rotary tool to make the hole on the underside of the front flare due to the low clearance - couldn't use my cordless drill there.

This is my daily driver and I will be using it right through the winter. Seeing the spray pattern up the side of the car on a rainy day, I could tell that flares/flaps were a must have.

Thanks for the pictures. I've been considering getting these when my CGM arrives. I am worried about getting chips in the paint.

Personally I think they suck. They look like something Ford makes, clunky.

I agree that they stand out a bit more than I'd like them to, but they are very well made and will serve the purpose for which they were intended. I wouldn't get these if it wasn't my daily driver, but I can't imagine not getting them seeing how the lower part of the body is so exposed to stuff thrown from the wheel.

agreed, if it's a daily driver, it's easy to see how the back tire is going to throw rocks, etc, up the back panel.. A LoT. and when you turn that wheel, the front will throw a spray up the front doors. It's a matter of protection I feel.

I have some on order for my CGM.

I have these on my CGM and the first meetup i went to there were over 20 other camaro owners there and no one even noticed my guards... they are not as noticeable as you would think... they were worth it to be honest.. kept my car clean when all the other cars were getting muddy.

I noticed yesterday after turning on a road with lots of loose gravel- (F-ing POS city roads!!!) that I have 4 or 5 paint chips where my front tire threw rocks back around the gills. I know this because I had just washed it (spotless wash) and dried it off and went home to get the excess water off. I think I'll get the splash guards now, even though I don't like the way they look. It's better than having paint chips!!

Um... they replace your rocker panels...

btw... 3M is the industry leader in adhesives and there are ZERO issues with them now.

If the problem is price, then say it. Please don't scare people away from them with your false assumptions...

Has anyone put black quarter flares on a different color car ie black flares on a ABM or IBM? I was wondering if they look better the same color as the car or black.

They will work fine. They just won't work with the ground effects package.
