    Got mine from the U.K. today. That’s pretty darn fast shipping. Will try to get them installed this week/weekend. Will post again once that happens.

    Looks good.

    Ordered a set also, what shipping service did they use, what they sent as far as shipping goes was very vague.

    yeah, they didn't send me tracking or anything. It came via airmail and there was a tracking number on the package, so you could ask them for it.

    I always keep on hand a screw driver bit, really stubby, 3/4" long if that, with about 1/2" diameter of hockey stick tape wrapped around it.

    I'm fine with our Prius as-is, no mud flaps, but for other vehicles.

    MillerCA2,
    What instructions did you use to install? I bought the mudflaps and was trying to install them today. I followed the instructions based on the EU install instuctions but when I fit the back mudflaps, the screws are too small for the the hole they instructed me to drill.

    It never hurts to lay the drill bit over the screw, make sure it's about the inside diameter of the screw. Use a plastic insert?

    So it tells you to use nothing but the screw. I remember when i put the mudflaps on my Prius v, it had u nuts that came with the screws. Went to hardware store and picked some up. They work perfectly and have a nice tight fit.

    Would a larger sized self-tapper (correction - screw) work for you?

    I never knew what those were called; Honda uses them for a lot of rear mud flaps.

    Yes, thanks! That and a pointed thread screw. (No euphemisms implied or intended).
