My fender extender was originally "professionally" fitted with both the sticky pads and plastic push "rivets". The rivets popped and sticky failed and extender escaped.

I recovered fender extender and used marine stainless nylock nuts and bolts, with clear nylon washer on painted side, using existing the rivet holes. Job done.

 :762:  yes I used S/S bolts and self lock nuts too.... I didn't consider  the supplied rivets to be strong enough

I fitted mine with the sticky pads and Push rivets,  think I'd better nip out and check it's still there   :5:

Peter I admit to being a 'belt and braces man'   :008: 

TBH I thought the S/S bolts looked better than the rivets  :169:
