Haha Thanks Jim. They actually look better than in the pictures. Very consistent along the body lines. The pics make it look like there are areas that are too thick or inconsistant. Not the case.

thanks in advance

Center of pin is pried out with a screwdriver. Remove center, then you can remove the outer. There is a slot on the sides of the pin so you can get a screwdriver in under the head.

Just installed mine during a Scifi commercial. Just kidding. It took about 20 minutes w/o removing the tires.Your arms just get dirty past the elbows.I followed HyperViper's example and increased the upper outer edge radius. Now it looks stock. Perfect fit. It disappears on a black car, but still looks stock on my red one. I would buy them again in a heartbeat. Nice product Viper Specialty. If you like the tapered look at the top, it's an easy fix with a disk sander, file and sand paper. Just go slow. John

Broke off one of the lower pins when installing mine. Be careful when pulling them out. (all the others worked perfectly).

This is a really nice protective piece for Gen IV's.

Got mine on today. I had the textured side towards the tire at first and then switched them and put the smooth side towards the tire. I think I like the texture on the outside.

Just put mine on today (along with an oil change, fog light bulbs swapped out for brighter HID-like bulbs, and a thorough wheel cleaning).

I like 'em! Thanks Dan!:beer:

I'm not feeling it. I'm sure they do what they're designed for but I don't see the need for them being so high up on the sill. But that's just my opinion.
I came up with my own that's more of a low profile look that protects the lower portion of the sill which is all that's needed replacing the oem flaps to keep deflection of air to cool the cats. To each his own I guess.
Here's a few pics.

I can tell you... your design isn't going to save your sills for the long haul. They get chipped almost all the way up sooner or later... stickier and wider tires just speed it up. My sill design is as low-profile and out of sight as you can get while still retaining functionality... If It didn't need to go that high, it wouldn't have :dunno:
