colour wise tis up to you entirely, i've seen more or less all colours of cars with all colours of flaps lol, red on black looks pretty good though

IIRC rallyarmour stuff is suposed to be pretty good, but not used it personaly

Hi Five skin,

We'll take a look to see if we have any pictures that our customers/distributors have sent to us that may include this combination.

The common misperception is that the URs are "floppy". The best way to describe them is "firm but flexible". Extensive "flapping" is a characteristic of softer PVC based flaps.

The urethane used for the URs is the same type of urethane we provide for motorsports use:



In a street version flavor

mmm, any idea on shipping cost?

since i've had the oil cooler fitted the oil filter has dropped and i'm worried i may catch it, thinking this would stop that from happening?

also got a front mount as well so do you know if it fits with an intercooler in place?
