Most of the time I just replace them when they start looking worn, or when i feel like taking some curved scissors to a soda bottle . o yea, and they can be painted like normal lexan on the inside too. but yea, primary function is to protect your nice shock towers and shock ends from chips or scratches in those "accidental" impacts or roll overs. A little effort goes a long way in making your stuff looking better for longer IMO. I'll rather cut me some new ones than having a shoddy looking front end . ps...i made those rear mudgards as well

I also make all my own mud guards from Lexan or Thin CF.....but im 100% doing these shock thingy's that seriously is a freekin good idea...Im off to go pound a 600ml and start cutting. Thx for the Idea.
