Different strokes for different folks!! I don't like the GM splash guards. They're too bulky. That's why the RPI ones are called Stealth. They're not really visible unless you look for them.

Not even close. Good luck finding a set at Wal-Mart that fit like these. We spent 10+ hours getting the fitment right, with a custom bracket for mounting and no drilling. Find that at Wal-Mart!

This is the best first mod you can make. I hate to see guys/gals get stone chips and the odometer only read 2 miles!!

I don't have pics yet, but just finished the install. It was fairly straight forward, but a few suggestions for RPI and tip for fellow installers....

For tools, the RPI website states that a screwdriver is included... what is actually included is a screwdriver bit- there's enough room up front to use with most screwdrivers that take bits. In the rear, with the wheels on, this provides a challenge. Not enough torque with fingers to loosen the screws. too deep/too close to the tire to use a stand alone T-20 torx bit. The best I could come up with was to put the T-20 torx bit into a 1/4 inch socket (I used a 3/8 drive for more reach) or like me, I have a torx bit socket set, so I used that on the ratchet. Installation was a bit differnet, because of the longer phillips screws. I ended up having to use my fingers with the 1/4 socket to get enough torque to tighten the screws. Not enough clearance for a ratchet. The L shaped bracket part didn't require anything special- though I thought about tightening the screws and then sticking the 'L' bracket in around the back of the splash guard, but didn't

The Instructions were fine on the front two. The instructions for the rear were a worded a bit strangely, but with the car and pieces in front of me, I could figure it out as I went. The photocopied picture is a little hard to see... might see about either color or a line drawing version. I noticed that the 'L' brackets werent completely a 90 degree angle. meaning that I don't think the entire face of the tape is sticking to the splash guard. If it lets go, I will add a layer of 3M body molding tape to the 'L' bracket that sticks to the splash guard. I am a little leary of how well the rears will hold up with the skinny tube spacers. We'll have to see how it goes. If anything goes awry with them, I am thinking that a one piece spacer could be fashioned out of something (phenolic resin, plastic, etc) or even a wider individal spacer to give some more stability to the splash guard. The other thing that I think might help is a second 'L' bracket per side.

But they do look good!

You did it right, the ratchet is the way to work it. Shoot some pictures for us if you can, we'd love to see them on your Camaro!!

I just put these on. Here are my thoughts. You really need to remove the rear tires for the install. The tubes are too long for the top screws, but that is an easy fix. The "L" brackets don't work very well at all. Both sides are already off of the flaps. They are still stuck to the fender, but not the flaps. Not a big deal, but now their is a space. Their needs to be a better way to make these fit. The instructions for the rear instalation is not very clear but not too hard to figure out.

The look is great. You can't even tell they are on the car unless you are looking for them.

I didn't have an issue with the length of the tubes on mine, but I agree completely on the L brackets. mine are pulled away from the guards also, after less than a week. It would seem that it would be better to have an L bracket that had a hole/threads for a screw through the flap.

RPI keeps claiming in here that the L brackets will hold up great, yet the VAST majority of reviews from users (almost 100% of them in fact) say otherwise. I keep putting off buying these based on the negative reviews of the rear L brackets. RPI, is this your final design or do you have plans on modifying the rear brackets in the future?

Add me to the list of L brackets not holding the flap!

obe1 or others, can someone take a picture of the rear flap showing the L brackets? It's hard to visualize this when you haven't seen these in person. Thanks!

I am going to see how the L brackets are adhering to the fender itself. If they are holding well, I will try to add a layer of adhesive tape to the flap

You can't see the "L" bracket on mine. It is still attached to the inner fender. Really not THAT big of a deal. Their is just a small gap between the flap and the fender.

I agree. It needs a screw to hold the flap to the bracket.

Wrong thread. These are not the GM splash guards.

These are a good idea but they need to be wider IMO i mean traditionally mudd flaps are wide as the tires.

I cut down the rears but kept the same radius on the outer curve (didn't like how they hung down). They still keep all the road grime from getting on my fenders.
