I got the fenders about a month after the rear carrier. I just installed the fenders, but it took me longer than I anticipated since I had to figure it out as I went. I discovered I needed to take off the carrier to install the fender, since it attaches to the carrier from underneath. I also added my own larger washers to the bolts going through the wire support stays, so the heads wouldn't go through the bent wire holes. It took several tries before I got the fenders to not rub the tires. They seem to be well made and match the bike nicely.
