Slide the arch guard into place, making a note of how high up the arch it goes. You'll need to apply double sided tape along the edge of the arch up to this point. Do not remove the tapes outer cover yet.

Remove the outer cover on the double sided tape and press the guard onto it. Then use 3 of the provided clips to hold it in place while the tape adheres

These are the widest shots I have.They really do blend in with the car,which is a good thing I suppose as they do the job but are discrete at the same time.Anybody get a wider angle of these on the car from the front/side?
