    My only fear about drilling into the back bumper is cracking(spidering) from the plastic over time.

    Canadian Tire Premier Fit plastic splash guards, $11.99 a pair (so about $24 for 4):

    http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/pr...8817p.html#srp

    That was about 2 years ago when we first bought the Little Guy, so far they're doing a great job of protecting his underside from rock chips and other debris (we did some light off-roading with him in Death Valley in Feb 2017). They are still quite secure, no cracks or rips, a little dirty but hey they're splash guards...

    My only complaint is that because they're rigid & not flexible, be careful what you're climbing over (scraped them a few times on curbs but they still haven't fallen off)...

    We had one of the techs install them for us while Little Guy was up on the hoist for an oil change, used the existing pre-existing screw holes in the front fenders and drilled holes in the rear bumper for the back ones...
    Nice!

    I got mine from nissanparts.ca. (website is down right now).
    I actually emailed them asking if drilling was required because I was worried about rust.
    They answered "no drilling required", which is not true (the front ones don't, rears do)
    Since the holes are drilled in plastic anyways I realized it doesn't matter, Ha Ha.
    I like the way they fit & the black plastic seems to match my white car well.
    I have yet to find out if the mini rooster tails out the back while driving in the rain are gone.

    According to the invoice I paid $103.85 with taxes & shipping.
    I included the installation documents FYI.
    It was actually a good experience to get the jack out & remove each rear tire for the 1st time on this car.
    I plan to re-torque the lug nuts to 83 ft-lbs after driving >100Kms.

    I purchased a set from Canadian Tire PowerFlow Profit. The style was #1 for the front and #2 for the rear. Somewhere around $50 and tax. Fit fine and I removed the front push pin clips on the front inner fender and replaced them with a little longer ones of the same style , used 1 screw from the install hardware package in the lower plastic inner fender. The rear ones I had to drill the rear bumper lip and use 2 of the install screws and 1 smaller shorter screw near the bottom of the plastic bumper lip. I'm happy with the end result. I choose these as the Nissan OEM splash guards were shorter and very expensive. In NL the cost was $112.44 not including 15% HST for a set of 4 which I thought were not going serve as well due to the length below the rocker panels.Name:  2.jpg
