Default Mudflaps

i found a thread about someone getting rear mudflaps and getting them installed by the dealer, but has anyone gotten them and installed themselves? i'd like rear ones, and would probably replace the front while i'm at it. would i have to drill holes.... how easy are they to get done? and also.. comments on the looks of 4 mudflaps?

Couple weeks ago, my wife pulled a set of "Bonneville" mudflaps off a black supercharged SLE while we were at the yard. They were held in by 4 philips head screws each Basically they screw in where the wheel well cover screws go.

ok, so i would take the wheel well cover screws out, put the mudflap on, replace screws? are front and back interchangeable, and also are models/years interchangeable?

I would imagine the 92-99 years would be interchangable. I know I'm giving this set my wife pulled to Pat at NEBF. You're going to be there right? You can check them out then.

BTW, yeah it looks like it was a matter of pull screws out, place mudflap, put screws back in.
