Hi James - ever so sorry mate, I had taken the pics just hadn't posted them up

Anyway here they are

Front Flap Fixing


Rear Flap Fixing





Basically the flap needs to be held in position. Hold it up next to the arch lining and position it where you want it to sit when fixed. Aslong as you have black - draw on the flaps with a felt pen the outline of the shape of the arch so you can line it up later on. Now you need to decide how many bolts to use and where to place them. I would use the same number as whats in the pics Then you need to drill a small hole through the flap and into the arch lining....then screw the self tappers into the hole (I'd start with the top one first). Another suggestion is when you have marked the flap and the holes - hold both front flaps together and mark through each of them - that way you will have them lined up perfectly (at least they'll both be the same). For the rears you need to do the same thing - the only problem here is the wheels need to be removed. A word of warning too - don't set the Flaps too low mine are a Fist height plus a half and when cornering with 4 up (like at the weekend) I got a bit of dragging Thats probably down to my lower Prodrive suspension. Anyway good luck mate and don't be put off by this lengthy post

cheers Nelson, that's a big help.

one question though, did you just fix them to thewheel arch edge and front faces of the skirts, as it looks like you haven't used any fixings inside the wheel arch or utilised the bit that sticks up from the flap with a pre-drilled hole in it.

great pics though mate

James - yes sorry they are fixed to the edge of the arch lining and the plastic studs (that are there originally) are still in place (just in case they need to be removed).

The Flappy bit wasn't utilised but to be honest it doesn't need to be - they aren't going anywhere and stay very rigid I could have cut the flappy bit off to be honest
