    The red looks really good with the OW paint! I went with black flaps and red stickers. Tossed them on this weekend, pretty simple install.

    I can see why RA is having trouble developing flaps... There really no good, solid points to mount the flaps. The most robust points are clips glued to the body (used to hold the wheel well liner) and the liner itself is used as a mounting point. This probably works ok since the flaps aren’t heavy but if they were, I would imagine they would pull the liner down and not sit flush. I’m happy with the rear flaps but the front fitment leaves a bit to be desired. I might tweak them a little bit and apply a little double side tape in the spring.

    All in all, happy with my purchase. Would recommend as an alternative.

    Just called them this afternoon (I was the one that had called them about a month ago), and was told that they are a couple weeks away, 2-3 weeks and they are hoping to get them out before the holidays (Christmas). Was told that they are definitely going into production, it's just a matter of getting them done. If you have submitted a ticket on their website, you will be notified as soon as they are released.

    Here's a picture on their Instagram, it seems like they state "late 2014/early 2015 launch":

    As of today this was the email I got.....

    At this time, we are prepping for the product launch, we wanted you to know that we appreciate your continued patience. We will be sure to notify you as soon as the flaps are available for purchase.

    I can't believe that it has taken them more than 15 months to get this to market.

    Look real closely - it is a carbon fiber overlay. I don't expect everyone to like it.

    The shipping is an absurd price. Am I just spoiled from amazon prime?

    You're spoiled. Shipping is on par with non-Amazon rates. ...however, I prefer the Amazon Prime rate.

    Skimmed through the instructions. I've seen easier instructions for removal of a gall bladder. Not that terribly hard, I guess, but the whole thing retains a whiff of Rube Goldberg. And besides, I think if I drive fast enough, the rocks will all just spray out behind me, on the principle, "If you drive fast enough, all problems recede to the vanishing point in the rear view mirror."

    @jimclark, you need to come rallycross with us! If you wonder why one should buy rock flaps, you need look no further than my Focus SVT. The rockers are blasted down to bare metal! I'm going to get some bed liner paint for the rockers once I get the engine fired up again. In the meantime, Black with blue lettering RallyArmor flaps have been ordered and will be installed for the June RallyCross.

    I sent you an IM on "the other forum"--run by some dweeb that doesn't like "Like" buttons! :jawdrop: :meh: --saying I'm leaning toward the black and red. (Obvious, I know.) But first have to get the purchase order approved by the CEO. And yes, I wanna get out to RX this thing. See ya soon, my friend!
