So, I got the front flaps on.... But there is a problem.... They are like an inch and a quarter off the ground! That is WAY too low. It was hard to tell where they would sit cuz I had the wheels off and the car was jacked up. All is not lost tho! I plan on just taking them off and making new holes in the flap a couple or a few inches down to move the flaps up where I want em. Its a shame tho... I am a perfectionist and knowing that there are other holes in the flap is gonna bug the hell outta me! Ohh well... Im at work now so I cant post any pics, I'll try to post em tomorrow. Now im in a crappy mood...

I would be curious what the actual dimensions are for these flaps.

I'll measure the template I made and post the dimensions.

UPDATE!!!
I moved the front flaps up to the same height as the rear flaps. I just took them off and used one of the flaps as a template and just scooted it down 2 5/8" and marked the holes and drilled em out. Looks amazing! Im not too happy that there are extra holes in the front flaps but you cant even tell they are there. Im working another closing shift tonight so I cant post any pics till tomorrow. Was gonna post yesterdays but we did the whole Black Friday shoping deal today... So tomorrow I'll get all the eye candy posted!

Ok, so here is the pic of where the front flaps sat after the first try...

This is the template I had made for the front flaps during the first attempt...


So I just took them and used the other as the template and scooted it down so I could have the same angle but just move the holes down to make em match the height of the rear flaps.




So this is how they sit now after drilling the new holes in the flaps, big difference compared to the first pic...




I am very pleased with how they all sit now, really adds a nice touch to an already great looking car (I dont mean to toot my own horn)...
It was a long process to get these flaps on but it was well worth it to end up with a result that I am extremely happy with. I hope you enjoyed this thread and may it give you ideas and help if you plan on installing your own. Thanks for reading!

those look really good. and the basics on your car don't hang down super low so they shouldn't bend like they do on the Subaru's
