Finally done with the install of the Rokblokx flaps.
Meh, they're ok. I'm a little disappointed. I am decent at rigging things, and am pretty crafty at fabbing up stuff on the fly.
The rear hardware is almost useless, more than half of it had to be sourced at the local ACE hardware.
I would say if you're handy, and have tools and a work area- they are a decent buy. But they are not a simple bolt on. The fronts mounted pretty well. The rears dont have as solid a mount, due to mostly plastic as the backer to attatch to.
I need to do some more tweaking on the rears, theyre a little slanted.
But really, other than the flaps, every other bit is sitting right at tue hardware store. Even the brackets that mount the lower fronts, theyre just rebent "corner supports" available right at the hardware store.
On a 1-10 scale, I'd give these a 5 or 6.
If you want cheap flaps that are diy I that a universal kit and some stuff from Ace would be a better buy for the money. I'll grab some cutting boards at ikea and maybe try that method next time. I am not trying to trash the product. I just think theyre merely ok and that they could have been engineered a little better. I'd still rather have these than the oem splashguards.
But if you aren't handy, have someone qualified to install them. And unless they change some things you may need to head to the hardware store.
Im pleased that theyre on, and I like the fronts.

I finished JUST IN TIME. Was a bit of a headache, but now its debadged, and the flaps and weathertech mats are nice on an all-weather, all-roads type of car.
Starting to really enjoy the tasteful modding.
Now to do something about all that chrome on the nose...
