Fenda Extenda installation

I installed my Fenda Extenda tonight but don't like the screws it came with. I doesn't seem right to have the sharp screw points so close to the tire. Any good install tips?

Re: Fenda Extenda installation

Joe.. I'd put some stainless bolts from the inside...that way you have a "smooth" surface on the inside. I would use some "nylock" nut and stainless washer to assemble. Once you do that, you'll have some "clean" showing on the outside. I've seen some real "shallow" nylocks that should do a real nice job.

If there is too much of the bolt showing, just cut with a Dremel "cutoff" wheel.

I'd say you could use some "skull" bolts like the HD guys use, but, that might not be too good on the LT..... unless you want parts falling off.

Re: Fenda Extenda installation

I used black nylon "Christmas Trees" that are commonly used to attach fender liners in cars. Available at any hardware store in different sizes.

You may need to clip off a bit of the length with a pair of side cutters if they extend too far inside the fender. Bonus - they will never corrode.

Re: Fenda Extenda installation

Did the same job myself a few months back. Those screws are close, but I only make a mess trying to dremmel the ends off so left them.
I have checked the tires for marks, but they are obviously not touching.

ABS plastic epoxy. Make sure it is in the perfect spot then hold tight for 5 minutes, let dry overnight.

It will be a permanent part of your fender.

Re: Fenda Extenda installation

I Have had a front fenda extenda on for about 6000 miles, used the screws supplied, i filed the ends back a couple of millimetres after installation, no problems at all, i probably did not need to file the screws, but i just felt it couldnt hurt anyway.
Regards
Stevie
