I think they look very good on my black Fusion. I have not seen them on other colors. Fairly easy to install--I'd say 30 minutes total. You do have to drill a few holes, but you don't have to take the rear wheels off like the instructions say. Mine had hardware, but I question if it was all the right pieces. I had to improvise with some extra screws & fasteners from Autozone to get them on tight.
I also installed mine in less than a hour. All the hardware was included, but the instructions are not very good. You do have to drill a couple holes, but it is very easy. I used all new plastic fender pins as once you remove them they never seem to hold as well. They are only a couple dollars at any local parts store.
I also painted the words on the rear splash gaurd to make them stand out. I used silver touch up paint from autoZone and they look awesome on my car. I think they look great on any color and add just a little extra touch.
Just wondering if anyone has pics of what these look like.... They tend to use lots of cinders on the roads around here during the winter and I would like to protect my paint as much as possible. Also looking for pics of how they are fastened to the body.... I am thinking of maybe only putting these on during the winter and removing during the rest of the seasons. Thanks!
I installed mine last week. The install was easy, but the hardware I got with mine is questionable. The push plugs are easy to remove and save although the ones that came in the kit were totally different. I went to a ford dealer to buy new extra ones and surprise they didn't have them. As for taking the rear wheel off. No need to. It's tight for the drill but it works. The hardest part I found was getting enough room under the car to drill up into the rear fender. Had to use a right angle drill or jack the car up. Anyway it's done and hopefully save a bit of paint on the sides during the winter.
Managed to get a good coat of wax on before the snow flies.
