The picture above is for the ND without the rear cosmetic skirt, there is extra tape on the ones to fit my ND2
The front flaps fit with the existing plastic connectors, the bottom one being exchanged for a longer type (supplied with the flaps)
The rear flaps are suck in place with 3M heavy duty tape BUT I have not fitted these yet as the outside temperature is a little low and it needs warmer weather to cure the adhesive, so these will be fitted in a few weeks (hopefully it will get warmer!)
The front flaps took less than 5 minutes to fit - you DO need a trim removal tool if you value your finger nails or skin. My cheapie plastic ones from Amazon (<£5) worked well.
To install, turn the wheels to point right to fit the right hand flap and left to fit the left one. That's about as technical as it gets.
Some pics of the flaps in place - hardly noticeable once in place and unless looking, I doubt if you would notice them.
As mentioned, the rears will be fitted when the weather gets better. I may insert a fixing as well, do I trust 3M tape that much??
Yes, the drive needs weeding and that's on the list to do.

OK here is a quick-ish update on the mud flaps.
On Sunday, we left home at 0800 hours for a breakfast meet at the Ffolkes Arms in Norfolk (home of the Kings Lynn OC Group) Ffolkes Arms where 20 cars bought members together for a fry-up.
As we left home, it was rather misty and light rain, so top was up. Roads here were wet and, in places, large puddles following heavy rain the day before.
In Norfolk, as we were eating, the sun came out and, apparently, it became the hottest day of the year so far! Result.
We then drove back roads to STODY LODGE & GARDENS where, for May weekends only, they open the gardens for visitors. One for next May's diary. I promise you, its stunning.
A 150 miles of wet and dry A10, back-roads, minor roads, A14, A11 and parking on wet grass at Stody Lodge and this is what the car looks like. As you can see, hardly anything up the side of the car and the back-end much cleaner.
