I am getting ready to install mine and I have to drill a couple holes. My spidey senses are tingling at the idea of drilling through the fender and exposing bare metal to the salty winter elements. Is their something I can put on the screws or in the hole to help protect it from rusting over time? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I just did mine last night i think the front splash guards had some screws with something already on it to prevent rusting, but the rear ones didnt. i was able to get a standard sized drill into the front wheel wells by turning them out of the way. I had to use a Dremel with a 90 degree attachment to drill the holes for the rear splash guards (you could remove the tire it you dont have a small drill/ Dremel for the rear slash guards).
