i've heard of people using undercoating spray paint on the insides of them, too. i think i'm gonna try that out on my next one.
just make sure they don't come loose, or you're OTB.
If you must use fenders, use GOOP on and around all brackets...very strong, i also use Goop on the motor mounts and around the mount bolts after install...great product...strong and flexible...Dennis
