Just installed these on my wrx
Ok so I just installed the flaps on my wrx. After seeing someone in ossining with a nice custom STI with the red UL flaps, I decided to go with red instead of black. Anyway, the instructions are available via video from rally armor's website. I found, however, that on the 2010, as compared with what they call "08+", the install was not the same. First of all, in the front, there was no need to pull the liner out, it came that way from the factory. So instead, I just removed the factory clips as shown in the video, pulled the skirt back a bit as shown, and then slipped the proper plastic clips on and screwed everything in as suggested. It is not as flush as I would like it, but its fine. The rear, was a whole other story though. Unlike on the "08+" instructions, there is actually a plastic liner on the rear of the wheel well that is not on the older version. That made sighting the hole almost impossible. So I screwed in the two screws on the side, then just went straight in wit hthe screw by drilling it right through. This was not easy, there was not nearly as tall of a "lip" of vertical metal hanging down as there is in the "08+" from the video. I just pushed hard with the drill, put it on a low speed, moved my hands well out of the way, and tried about 5 times until it went through. I did a sloppy job, don't do it this way. I did not have the right tools. I suggest first lining up that last top inner hole with the plastic liner, pushing it onto the metal lip with your hand so they stay in contact, and then boring a hole by hand first through the plastic in the right spot. Then do the metal, then screw it all in. Anyway, it took longer than I anticipated. I think it would be even easier to use the "clip method" as they call it in the video, but I wanted the security of having the flaps screwed in directly. If I did it all again, I'd use the clip method. I'll post some photos, but first, how do I assign a URL to my photo? It's just a file on my computer. ?? any help there? or is there just another way to add the photo that I don't see here... new to the forum. thanks.
