Are they worth it...seems they are same price in EU as here so could just order them locally?

Also wondering if a seal compound should be used between them and the body, sikaflex or the like maybe?

answering my own question, found the guide, then found the french YT guide, looks reasonably easy enough...think I will be getting the kit ;)

Re the sealant, I'd say yes as long as the stuff you use is non acidic (I believe some silicone can be) so it doesn't affect the paint finish over time.

I haven't seen one of these kits, so what I'm about to say may be unnecessary - however having worked in Garages that fitted body kits we discovered that the edges of screw-on / clip-on kits i.e. wing extensions, bumper overlays, front spoilers, etc, etc sometimes rubbed the paint away where the extension edge met the main body as they flex on each other.

Perhaps if the kit doesn't include or the instructions don't suggest a bead edge protector it may be worth considering. That said, I hope members here will give you fitting advice having actually done the deed, as opposed to my well-meaning advice? ;)

It comes with the usual double sided tape looking at the video, im thinking of calling in one of the local paint supplies and seeing what sikaflex they suggest also, tigerbond / tigerseal may be best which you can get on the bay etc.

Any accessory manufacturers listening in??

I just wish someone would bring out un-obtrusive wheel-arch protectors that just cover the vulnerable edge of the wing around the wheel arches. Every one to their own, but I'm personally not so keen on having 2-3" of black plastic slapped onto the outside of the wing around the wheel arches.

I mounted wheel arch kit to my ph 2 duster yesterday.
Take your time while you install.
Make sure everything is clean.
I also installed arches on my sisters Duster, and they are still tight fit after nearly 1 years of use.

Screws and cleanerwipes came with the kit.

It was easy, and it looks good!

The Dacia wheel arch protectors x 4 for the Duster comes to around £250.. these ones on the bay are only £50 pus postage..

My only concern is will they match the standard plastic matt black finish on my bumpers and sills? I've tried asking the supplier - but can't get a sensible answer.. So was wondering if anyone else has bought/fitted these.. and are they o.k.?

Hmm, chrome black matt, I would be wondering what colour and finish that is exactly.

Did you read the description of the add??
The add title is misleading, it's available in chrome or matt black or ready to paint, you choose on checkout.
They look quite nice in matt black looking at the photos...... Chrome looks a bit 90s chav but would look ok with chrome mirrors and handles etc
It's the matt black I was looking at.. but not sure if they would match the bumpers and trim.. maybe I'll just risk it.. well.. matt black is matt black innit huh? :huh:
