Paul,

Bling that actually serves a purpose.

Paul, I've always thought stone guards looked particularity nice on English sports cars. A pair of these is on my short list.

Paul,
Is there any chance that you can post an extreme closeup of the clip so we can see exactly how it is attached.
Thanks,

I'll get a closeup when I get home from work and add to this thread. It was a pretty simple task. The most fiddly part was removing the shroud via the the two screws and one post with nut. Once removed there are three Philips screws that hold the chrome trim ring around the headlamp. I removed one at a time and screwed on the clips. The "L" part of clip with screw hole faces away from the headlamp. Once the three clips were done, I reinstalled the shroud. Took me less that an hour to do both headlamps.

Here is a photo of the exact guard and clips.

Once the clips are in place can the grill be removed without undoing everything? The clips look like they are spring loaded and would allow it.

Thanks,

Here is a close up photo of a clip installed. Not sure it helps. I'd have to remove the headlamp shroud to give a close up of the clip and screw.
It really is not difficult to install these. Heck, if I can do it, anyone can. The instructions that came with mine were simple but clear.

I like the stone guards.

I've lost two headlamps to stones over the years. Though, both were glass headlamps not the modern plastic ones.
