Default formed stone guards

I am thinking about installing the formed stone guards to the rear of my PT. If you have these on your PT, would you recommend? Do they help? Are they easy to install? Do I have to drill into steel to install?
Thanks in Advance!!

They work great. Easy to install. Had them on two of our three PT's. I used the factory screws. Marked the guards, drilled holes in the guards and screwed them on.

I've had them on for a few years now too. I have the one's with "PT Cruiser" written across the bottom and the lettering finally wore out just a couple months ago.

Like Mean Green, I used the factory screws after lining the flaps up and drilling 2 holes on each one were they were needed.

Do they help [:I] I've always had them on and the back quarter panal in back of the flaps has no nicks, so I guess they do.

Sounds like you are talking about the "fitted" guards that run around $25-$28 from the dealer?
If so, there is only 1 hole to drill for each guard and that is in the plastic fascia, not the steel. The rest of the mounting uses existing holes and screws.
Do they work? You bet they do!
