Thread: Splash Guard
04-01-2006, 09:16 AM #1
If anyone has installed a splash guard on your ski, did you use the rivets that are provided with them or did you use screws/bolts? If you used screws/bolts, how long were they?

i used longer rivets with larger washers on the backside. trick is keeping it centered and even all the way around

Take your bumper guard off and weld on some extensions to the oem bolts that are molded in to it. Have a spray bottle of H2O to keep cooling the bolt as you weld it, so it wont melt the bumper. Thats what I did. I have some pics of this but I cant find them.
Then if you can use SS bolts and nylock nuts. Drill holes between the stock holes and put in another set of bolts and like SMW said USE the Largest washer you can find with a 3/16 ID. I cut some large washers out on the plazma burn table, I should of cut extra. or a strip of aluminum 1/8th X 1" for backup. Bend it the arc of the inside lip. If you dont do this it will rip though the splash guard.

It's cake on a GPR, but keep it as high as possible. The RXP splash gaurd was tough for me. I ended up removing the inner front bumper.
