In my case.. do some 4x4ing and get it caught on.. something, and it might jsut rip off Had to rebend the spoke holding it on so it wouldnt hit the tire.. Ended up buying some new flaps but havent had the urge to put them on, they are a PITA to put new ones back on.

Mine took a 7/32 as well then the 2 pushpins things that go into the fender flares on the EDGEs. Takes maybe 5 minutes and makes a big difference in looks.

my bolts holding the flaps on are so corroded from 15 years of life they would never come off without breaking.

I've been thinking about doing this as well, but don't like the idea of the gap left afterwards. Anybody have any ideas on how to cover that up?
