Splashguard question

I saw a post a few weeks ago of a simple thin black splashguard that attached using the innerfenderwell clips. They were very subtle and blended in nicely. Does anybody have the link? I can't seem to find the post again. I seem to think it was through Ridergraphics but I may be worng.

This one?

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...=splash+guard-

Before I saw this one I was planning to make some for myself. (dunno if it would turn out as well) I cant stand those huge clunky looking ones from GM.

Thanks! Those are exactly the ones I was looking for. I knew the company name began with an R.

I agree with you completely. The big chunky ones just don't go with the lines of the car at all. They don't look as bad on darker cars because they kind of blend in, but they look terrible on brighter cars.

I wouldn't say they look terrible at all, it's hard to notice them when you just glance at it, of course if you go up and look at the car you will see them clear as day. I just bought a set, the paint on these cars are horrible, I drove for 1800 kilometers on NON gravel roads yet there are still over 10 chips on the car. And those other splash guards look cheap, just my opinion....

I don't think they look bad at all. Either way you definitely need them. Behind my front tires was awful. At least they covered up most of the damage.

I don't think its going to do much, it looks like it covers a smaller area than the tread of the tire. Atleast GM's cover the full width of the tire.

It really only needs to cover the part that is exposed. The inner part of the tire wont 'splash' up onto the paint anyway.

I put the GM molded splash guards on mine and have nothing but compliments on how good they look.....

I saw pics earlier today of some big plastic looking behemoths on a blue car. Completely ruined the look of the camaro. Made me think of training wheels.

I put the factory ones on and I really like them. I think it actually makes the look lower to the ground.

I've yet to see any that don't look clunky and ruin the lower lines of the camaro.

I dont think they're a visual improvement, but I love my paint more than I hated putting them on. What I don't understand, is why does the front set have a flat front, and the back set is scooped(?).

I've had mine (the real ones) for a while but was reluctant to put them on. I grew tired of the rocks and crap so I had the dealer install them recently. Love the way they look. To each his/her own.

I hear ya! I never cared for them at all, but like all you splash guard owners, I'd rather have me paint last longer than a year

They grew on me and actually don't look to bad

I put them on after seeing all the rock chip thread discussions. I wasn't real thrilled about the way they looked but they do what they are supposed to do.

I get compliments on mine all the time. I think the GM ones match the car and make it look somewhat lowered. These others look cheap, like something you pick up from a truck stop.

I could see the functional use, but would never want to post pics of my Camaro with them on. To each his own.

Sorry guys, I didn't mean to insult anyone with splashguards. I just prefer the clean lines of the car better without them. Unfortunately like everyone here has said, you wither put them on or deal with the insane number of stone chips. I like the thin "cheap" looking plastic ones because they blend in more and are not as noticeable. It's just my opinion though. I should have explained that the GM ones not looking good are just my opinion, and chosen my words more carefully.

I installed those on my IBM and I think they look way better than the GM ones, but to each his own I guess. The only thing I dont like about these is they use a 'clip' at the top on the front ones (2 screws on the bottom) and the rears use 2 screws + some double sided tape.

If either of those becomes an issue I'll probably look for another way to mount them.
