Attached are images from my c7 original splash plastic after 900 miles. These tires are super sticky and pick up EVERYTHING. The first two pics are the rear and the last two are from the rear. Notice that the stripes on the plastic lead right off the side of the guards, leaving all those chips in your paint.

My last Vette was a ZR1 and they did not have splashguards for it other than what it came with. I had both sides of the car repainted after one trip through the mountains. Fotunatley my insurance covered it with a small deductable from me. A year and a half later it was chipped again. I have learned the hard way and my new vette on order is coming with splashguards (front) but rear not available. I don't understand why. I have bought a set for the rear for when it arrives. These are an extremely good investment and are styled for the car and do not look goady at all. When washing the car guys, put some armourall on them and they look great and it lasts several washes before you have to do them again. It will hide the road grease stains on the face of the splashguards.

I assume you're all using the GM splashguards, or are there aftermarket alternatives?

FYI - here are detailed installation instructions from another forum member for the GM splashguards:

Thanks for reminding me. Going to order this weekend and have shipped to NCM so I can put them on right after car is delivered.

Has anyone found who sells the genuine GM splash guards for the lowest price? I should probably get some on order.

I just ordered from Shopchevyparts.com for $52.50 per set.

I noticed small pebbles in the back cargo area and had two small ones stuck between the spoiler and the hatch. That convinced me to get the splash guards.

Here in PA they put down these pebbles with the salt and they are everywhere on the roads since we had such a hard and snowy winter.

All you need to install them is a 7mm socket or wrench. Remove the correct screw (there are three in the back in the same area so be mindful here) pull the old plastic off, pop the new one on (watch where the tabs go and pay attention on the rear again, the bottom tabs go ABOVE the other body work in the rear, BELOW in the front). Reattach your screw, done in 5 min. (GM parts here.)

I also ordered mine from GM parts direct... Front 22935635 rear 22935639.

That's a good price. The lowest I've found so far is $128 for both the front and rear set, no tax, free shipping on Ebay.

I've ordered body-colored front and rear splash guards from RPI. I liked the pictures.

Bentley & Phillip 029.JPG Yes I purchased these I think they look great. They are so easy to install that even my dogs could have done it if I asked them. To the members who keep asking is it hard, no its that easy......

Where did you get the ones in torch red? All I've seen are ones in blk. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong spot.
RPI designs is what it said. You probably missed it because you were blinded by the beauty of the car. :)

Just ordered a set of VY for the Vette. Nice people to deal with.

I am getting a black C7 museum delivery with a TPW of 5/12. I want the splash guards before the drive home so it looks like I will be putting them on in the parking lot. I am debating if I should go with the GM parts or the ones from RPI. The ones from RPI come in body colored black and I am thinking that they would look better than the matte GM parts. What do you guys think?

My carbon fiber splash guards will be out in a few weeks to go with my diffuser on the kit. All goes together pretty well :)

Thanks Tom, I just ordered both sets from shopchevyparts.com. Got them both plus shipping for what the price without shipping was from where I originally was going to order. Their blade spoilers are a lot less as well, and the dash plaques. Thanks for the site!
