Took a while for them to arrive, but they are sano! Plastic is very tough and thick. Seems pliable also. The lower fork mounts have bushings in them, nice touch just like OEM there.

Here is the pics:

Install was very simple. Do the rear most bolt first and then work forward. They fit exceptionally well to say the least! I already had the Fastline CR routed cable installed with their aluminum rivet deal on the stockers. So it was a 5 minute affair (dont buy a Galfer brand line!!!).

The inside left guard is cut out to clear the factory rotor and cleared the 280mm Oversided unit I had with ease also:

The guards are a very nice product. Keep in mind, if you order the "kit" it comes with a Galfer brake line.

This kit would rate an A+ if it came with a fastline hose.
